Woodbine Harness: Thursday 12/4 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Spot Play: PRELUDE (1st)

Race 1

(5) PRELUDE qualified sharply for new trainer Jones and has some upside for this dash. Expect a low price. (1) WINDSUN COBRA has hit the board in two of his last three and comes out of the Autumn Series into this easier field. (2) COOL CREEK looks like a logical player.

Race 2

(4) JEWELS FOR ROSE has won three of six this season, draws inside and comes from the Wallace barn. (9) MYSTERY WRITER qualified very well over Western Fair and may offer a healthy price in her career debut. (1) GRANITE BLOSSOM draws the rail, gets Jamieson back in the bike and can only improve off her career debut last week.

Race 3

(1) JAYPORT ALL MUSCLE draws the rail and is due for a winning effort as the rookie makes his 15th start of the season. (9) SUPERFLEX finished third in the Autumn Final and should be a major threat in here. (2) REDEMPTION ROAD shows flashes of quick speed, draws inside and moves into a high percentage barn.

Race 4

(5) URBANA BAYAMA shows a quick qualifier coming into this wide-open tilt and may offer a price. (3) MISTER ACCUMULATOR draws inside, comes from the O'Sullivan barn and is fresh off a win. (7) CREDIT REFUSAL finished third last week at a higher level and should draw more attention in here.

Race 5

(4) MUSCLE BOYTOY has a solid record this season, draws well and moves into the Moreau barn. He has the speed and Moreau is terrific with first time starters. (5) DOWEYPUFFANDHOW comes from the Bax barn and shows quick speed in the Autumn Series. He should be a bigger threat in this softer group. (9) TROPHY DAUGHTER has hit the board in four of her last five starts and shows tactical speed off the gate.

Race 6

(10) SEA STAR has won eight of 22 starts this season, offers quick gate speed and has been a main threat at this level. (7) WELCOME WAGON made a miscue last week and will look to rebound. He shows the speed and has a solid record. (5) SMART ART has a 3-1-0 record from four starts this season. He can't be overlooked at this level.

Race 7

(8) TURBO MACH has a solid record to begin his career and just missed last week. (2) MITTCENT VAN GOGH doesn't like to win races, but has finished second in each of his last two. (4) P L HEAVENLY comes from the Puddy barn, has hit the board in each of his last two and has been offering a fair price.

Race 8

(1) ETRUSCAN HANOVER was a winner in the debut for Baillargeon last week and is capable of doubling up. (2) CAL CHIPS BROTHER qualified back nicely but needs to mind his manners. (5) MY KID SISTER has put together a solid campaign this season, draws in the middle of the gate and hasn't missed the board in each of her last five starts.

Race 9

(9) ROCKNROLL BAND was a winner last week for trainer Cirasuola and remains at this level. (7) SKY DESPERADO has hit the board in each of his last two starts and offers terrific gate speed. (8) LOST IN PANSLATION moves into the Macintosh barn and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 10

(5) NORMSTRIKESFAME raced well last week at this level and has put together a winning record this season. He's a major player in this contest. (2) GREYSTONE MOE was a winner two back in this class, but was assigned a post 10 start last week. (1) WARRIOR CALL has the speed, gets the rail and has hit the board in four of his last five starts.
