Woodbine Harness: Thursday 4/4 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (0-0 / $0.00): JAC SPADE (5TH)  


Race 1 

(2) LOURDES SEELSTER makes her debut, should offer a good price and gets a great post.  (1) MUSCLE GEM makes his first appearance off a nice qualifier and finds a field with a lot of question marks.  (4) FASTERTHANWOODY looks to be on the improve and should be a big price in this wide open race.

Race 2 

In a very competitive field, (2) GLAMMIT is making his second start back off a layoff and should be ready for a big effort.  (6) ORILLIA JOE has won two straight in here but is facing much tougher and will offer low value.  (7) CLASSIC GENT is undefeated this year in seven starts. The 3-year-old colt will need more but might have it in the tank.

Race 3 

(4) HER NAME IS LOLA is a well bred filly making her sophomore debut off a nice qualifier where she trotted home nicely.  (1) SWEEPING VICTORY just missed last out and looks to be improving against an inexperienced field.  (7) MONEY MAVEN is probably the fastest trotter in the race, but made a break last out and doesn’t have the most experienced pilot. 

Race 4 

(9) DELICATE TOUCH needed her first start and should be on the improve for a hot barn.  (7) RUBIS PRESCOTT was handled very aggressively last out just getting beat at the wire; fires early.  (2) OOZIES FINALE is bred to be a big-time player and now makes her way to the big track. 

Race 5 

(1) JAC SPADE was pacing up a storm late last time, gets the best post and looks to be in line for a nice cover trip; big driver change.  (5) PACIFIC WARRIOR has won two straight and makes his first start for the new connections; could improve.  (6) MACH MY WORD has yet to hit the board this year but is going in the right direction after putting up a very strong three-quarters of a mile.

Race 6 

I’m counting on the speedy (8) BREWMASTER to blast off the gate for position. If that’s the case, he should be in a great spot turning for home.  (10) SEE R CHIN WIN was an impressive winner last out but is now saddled with the worst post; fires early.  (5) B YOYO is loaded with talent but yet to put it all together; threat.

Race 7 

(8) MANVERS SHORT CUT ran into a buzzsaw last race but raced extremely well and should offer a much better price this time out. Watch the tote board early on (6) WINDSUN T BIRD. This trainer is lethal when it comes to first-timers in his barn.  (2) NATURAL WOMAN N is also making her first start for new connections and looks to have the most back class in the field. 

Race 8 

(9) SILLY DREAMS put in a super effort last out, making up a ton of ground after being three wide; big chance.  (2) LILY PAD HANOVER made it look easy in her first start of the year and seems to have much more left to offer.  (1) HONEY MUFFIN gets the best post and makes her second start for a new trainer; improving. 

Race 9

(2) FOOLISH MIND looks to be coming on strong chasing a game winner in her last.  (4) BETIT TO GETIT has won five of six starts on the year and looks to like it on the front; vulnerable late.  (5) GRAPHENE is a well bred filly which showed tremendous improvement in her second start and would have to be considered a huge threat if she does it again.

Race 10 

(2) VARADERO HANOVER comes off a nice qualifier, raced against all the big boys last year and makes his first start for this top trainer who is lights out with that angle.  (3) DULL ROAR just raced evenly last out but did pace faster than everybody else in the race.  (5) PAPPYS PAL closed from a very tough spot, making up a ton of ground late. 

Race 11 

(3) PUFF MOMMY could be the only threat to the favorite in the race and should offer decent value.  (2) NOARTOGRAPHSPLEASE is very consistent and loves to win but will be a short price and may have trouble if somebody challenges her early.  (4) ANDYS DREAMBOAT has just been racing evenly and could use some hot fractions up front to close into for her best chance.
