Woodbine Harness: Saturday 5/3 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: NATIONAL DEBT (2nd)

Spot Play: GOTTA SECRET ( 7th)

Race 1

(5) WAASMULA has been racing at her best in recent starts, stays at the same class and will offer a low price. (7) D GS PESQUERO has finished second in each of her last two starts in this class and comes out of Moreau's barn. (4) ITS NO SECRET draws inside, is versatile and should offer a fair price in this high level.

Race 2

(2) NATIONAL DEBT is undefeated in his career and was a shut-down winner last week. (6) SILVERHILL SHADOW posted a convincing qualifier in Florida and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt based on that charted line. (4) ROGER MACH EM has been racing at this best and finished a game second last week.

Race 3

(3) ROSE RUN ORIANA drops in class and just got picked off last week at the wire. She's a class mare and gets post relief. (2) KEYSTONE ORION raced terrific last week for Montini. He draws inside, has gate-speed and can improve off that effort. (1) MOTOWN MUSCLE gets the rail, closed well last week in her seasonal debut and can only improve on last week's effort.

Race 4

(1) FOUR STARZ HOLD EM was a game second last week and lacked racing room in deep stretch. He moves up in class, but is a prime contender. (6) CANBEC KINGKAZIMIR has hit the board in each of his last two starts and has excellent gate-speed. (10) KEEPING OPTOMISTIC comes out of the Johnson barn, has excellent gate-speed and has proven to be competitive at this level.

Race 5

(3) NOBLE FLIGHT has won two straight, including a comfortable victory last week at this class. (10) TURBO DONATO is versatile, has the speed and comes out of the Baillargeon barn. (1) SIXTH MAN gets the rail and finished a strong second in this class last week. He has the speed, but appears to need a trip.

Race 6

(2) HES A SENSATION drops in class after finishing second, by a head, at a higher level last start. (7) SUNNY BEACH DAY went a tremendous mile two starts ago and will look to regain form at a level he's competitive at. (9) CARSONS CAMALOT faces tougher competition, but has been racing at his best in his last two and possesses terrific gate-speed to overcome the outside.

Race 7

(2) GOTTA SECRET draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and posted a strong win two back. He faces an easier bunch in here than last week and should be better placed. (1) MEADOWVIEW ARTY gets the rail and finished a strong second last week for first time starter Auciello. He moves up in class, but gets a better post. (8) MIDFIELD MAGIC posted a gate-to-wire score in his latest and is capable of the class jump for Mayotte.

Race 8

(7) STATE TREASURER posted two convincing qualifiers and looks like he's ready for his 2014 debut for trainer Moore. (5) THINKING OUT LOUD got the job done in this class last start and makes just his third start of the season. (4) IN COMMANDO hasn't missed the board in each of his last four starts. He's a logical option for the triactor.

Race 9

(5) WHEELING N DEALIN was a comfortable winner last start and although he moves up in class, he is a top threat in here. (8) THANKYOUKESSEL has been knocking on the door in his past two starts and continues to improve this season. He has gate-speed and a good option for the exactor. (6) BAX OF LIFE drops out of the Preferred and into this level. She has back class and displayed the speed required in her last two.

Race 10

(4) DRAIN DADDY has been knocking on the door in his last two. He moves into the Gallucci barn, which is a plus and he is due for his first win of the season. (2) EVENIN OF PLEASURE draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and has hit the board in three of his last four. (6) DONAU gets Jamieson in the bike, which is a plus. He has the speed and is versatile.

Race 11

(10) MANCHESTER scored an impressive win last start in a new lifetime best. Even with a post 10 start and jump in class, he's a top contender. (8) THEPANINSULAHOTEL drops in class, enjoys racing off a helmet and has all kinds off back class in his favour. (7) COOL ROCK got rough gaited in deep stretch last week, which cost him the win. He has a patented late kick and quick fractions only help his chances.
