Woodbine Harness: Thursday 12/27 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: YS GOLD STAR (Race 6)
Spot Play: P L FAIRLADY (Race 1)

Race 1

(9) P L FAIRLADY has been knocking on the door in her last two starts. She’s definitely due for her first win of the season. (2) BLOODSTOCKSHALLTAB is very lightly raced this season and continues to improve. His final quarter speed is impressive. (5) MEGO MOSS found the winner’s circle last start at Kawartha Downs. A repeat effort and he should be a threat in here.

Race 2

(2) DREAMFAIR ECLIPSE raced very well in her return last week. She’s been runner-up in two of her three career appearances. (3) CHARDONAY SEELSTER has hit the board in four of six career starts. She’s also had some time off and responded well in her return last week. (5) SEBRING BLUE CHIP doesn’t like to win, but is always in the hunt. She’s a good option to have for the triactor.

Race 3

(5) MAJESTIC VIEW scored a convincing win last week at Georgian Downs. He’ll have to step up this week, but he’s certainly capable. (6) MONEY MAVEN doesn’t like to win, but is a ‘must have’ for all exactor and triactor wagers. He’s been racing very well on this circuit. (1) BETTY OOP made an uncharacteristic break last week from post one. She begins from the same post and if she behaves herself, she’s worth a shot. She has enough speed to be a factor.

Race 4

(8) LIFES CALL was an upset winner last week over an unfavorable track. She did all the work en route to victory and I think she can do it again. (3) MARQUISE DE SARAH was very impressive last week and has had a great start to her career. She should be a top threat at this level. (2) SELMAS WISH didn’t give her best effort last week, but has proven to be competitive at this level. She’s in for a claiming price and draws inside.

Race 5

(2) HALLUCINATION has been racing very well at Georgian Downs and makes the move to this circuit. He’s at a level where he certainly can win and comes from top trainer Moreau. (10) WOODRUFF appears like he’s putting his best stride forward late in the year. He should be able to overcome post 10. (5) NOBLE LOVER has been very inconsistent in her last number of starts. She came first-over last week, but with a better trip, I think she’s very playable.

Race 6

(8) YS GOLD STAR is fresh off two straight wins and remains at the same level. She’ll likely be the post time favorite and deserves to be. (7)AMERICAN GRACE finished second to YS GOLD STAR last week after getting a great trip behind her. The same trip could occur again. (10) SAMILLION DOLLARS has a good record and has enough gate speed to overcome post 10. She usually provides value and that will likely continue.

Race 7

(9) ART I SPECIAL got a great trip last week over Georgian Downs and comes back to this circuit. He gets off the gate very well and has a solid record this season. (6) ELITE hasn’t been worse than third in his last four starts. He draws a good post and gets off the gate well. (5) WHOLE LOTTA SHAKIN is always a threat at this level and raced very well last week from post 10.

Race 8

(1) MAKING MAGIC did all the work last week before fading to fourth. With a better trip than being on the front, I think he’s capable of winning. He’s lightly raced and shows enough talent and speed. (2) VALDABRO draws much better than he’s used to and I’m looking for a better trip than last week. (5) BILTMORE is the richest horse in the field and trotted a very strong mile last start at Georgian Downs. I think he’ll appreciate the bigger track.

Race 9

(1) DOCS HOPE has been racing very well in her last three starts. She continues to improve, remains at the same level and draws well. (7) MAMASAIDSO finished behind DOCS HOPE last week and it may happen again. She did all the work before fading to third. I’d like to see her race from behind. (3) GODIVA BEACHGIRL might be considered a longshot, but she’s been fairly consistent and shows good gate-speed.

Race 10

(1) FRESH HERB won at a higher level last start and drops in class. He’s got a good post and enjoys being forwardly-placed. (9) MY FELLA draws outside, but can certainly get off the gate well. He’ll likely offer low value and has a tremendous record this season. (7) CREIGHTON HANOVER has been fairly consistent in his last number of starts and moves to this circuit. He’s a good option to have and may offer a price.
