Woodbine Harness: Thursday 12/11 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: WITCH DALI (4th)

Spot Play: NIPPY W HANOVER (3rd)

Race 1

(4) MYSTERY WRITER flashed good talent in her career debut.  The 2-year-old finds a soft field and should only improve.  (3) PUT YOUR BAD ON comes into the race off a nice qualifier and has tons of upside.  (2) BAD SISTER faded badly last out after a fast half but had shown slight improvement prior; use underneath.

Race 2

In a weak and inconsistent field, (3) TAILS faces older but picks up a top driver and just needs to stay trotting for a big chance.  (8) WIRE ME CASH is 0-for his career but finds a field full of question marks and will offer a big price.  (1) PINSTRIPE PROMISE is a well bred 2-year-old that gets the best post and should have much more in his second career start.

Race 3

(6) NIPPY W HANOVER comes into the race off an impressive victory and shows good miles at this track a few starts back.  (3) WEEKLY SPECIAL has lots of room for improvement and really closed nicely from a tough spot last race.  (7) SOMEWHERE FAMEOUS is an impeccably bred filly that has just been racing evenly but is capable of showing improvement; command a price.

Race 4

(3) WITCH DALI was razor sharp in her sophomore debut, adds second time Lasix, and will be very tough to beat with a similar effort.  (10) ARTISTIC FUSION has started to blossom late in the season, however she will need to find a way into the race.  (4) GALARINA has been racing gamely and should offer a big price, but is probably best used underneath.

Race 5

(5) ETRUSCAN HANOVER finds a suspect field and was an easy winner at this level before the miscue last out.  (2) SORRENTO HALL is 0-for the year and has lacked pop turning for home; command a price.  (10) SEVERUS HANOVER has flashed ability and just needs a smooth trip for a piece.

Race 6

(8) SEA STAR makes his first start in a new barn that gets results in this scenario.  (1) LETS WAIT AND SEE owns a big burst of speed and gets a nice upgrade in the bike.  (10) PLANS OVER has been pacing some good miles at this level and is versatile.

Race 7

(1) P L HEAVENLY has been knocking on the door and will be given an aggressive drive.  (2) DRAGON SEELSTER owns only one win on the year but adds second time Lasix and was closing good ground late in the mile last out.  (5) WOODMERE RONDEVOUS could be the sleeper in the race at a price; owns a good win percentage on the year.

Race 8

(6) CASH FOR GOLD has been sharp in his last two and just needs a smooth trip for a big piece.  (3) PRELUDE is an impeccably bred freshman filly that gets sent out for big time connections and could be a cut above the rest in talent.  (2) FASHION GODDESS didn't miss by much last out and probably needed the start off the scratch-sick line.

Race 9

(2) MACH SOME NOISE drew into the much easier division and will be tough to beat with a smooth trip.  (4) DOUBLE JOY always gives a good effort, will be firing early and is one of few threats to the top choice.  (6) VAL DI NOTO is a well bred filly that makes her second start in a new barn and has room to improve.

Race 10

In a wide open and evenly matched race, (1) WARRIOR CALL is a tough play on top being 0-for the year but has been knocking on the door against better.  (3) JEFFERSON TARE came up empty in his last outing but looks to have a decent burst of speed.  (2) WELCOME WAGON has some issues but does own ability.
