Woodbine Harness: Thursday 5/1 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MASSIVE TALENT (1st)

Spot Play: CHERYLS SURPRISE (10th)

Race 1

(5) MASSIVE TALENT drops down into a maiden class and looks like the best in here. (10) ALL CHILL NO FILL has been knocking on the door in this class, has terrific gate-speed and is a main threat. (1) WIZARD OF OSNEY gets the rail and posted a strong final frame in her qualifier. She's a factor and may offer a price.

Race 2

(5) VILLAGE JESSICA drops in class and recently raced in the Blossom Series. Class relief is a key with her. (6) EAGLE MOLLY qualified strong with a good final quarter and comes out of the McNair barn. (4) SANDI LYNNE DAYLYN continues to improve, draws well and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 3

(6) SEAWIND PASCALE has won two straight, including at this level last week at even-money. (3) ERIN HALL draws inside in her second start of the season and has a license to improve. (1) DANICA gets the rail to work with. Showed a solid qualifier last week, enjoys leaving the gate and capped off her season in fine form from a year ago.

Race 4

(10) MR BIG HEAD will have to overcome post 10, but has excellent gate-speed, won last week and remains at the same class. (3) LIS DEO is a logical option for the exactor after hitting the board in five of his last six. (4) PINNACLE PEAK closed very well last week and continues to improve. He draws inside and should be better placed.

Race 5

(6) REGALLY READY had a productive rookie campaign last season and continues to drop time in both qualifiers. (9) A WELL KEPT SECRET lit up the tote board last week and continues to improve. She comes from a high percentage trainer and may offer a price. (7) RIVETING has been a threat in this class for many weeks and has a convincing record to use when mapping out a triactor.

Race 6

(3) FLEXIBLE WOMAN looks like the filly to beat in here after her win last week. She was pressured throughout the mile and refused to lose. (2) MAGIC FEELING caught everyone by surprise last start with her 50-1 winning effort in her season debut. She draws well in the final and will look to repeat. (6) TOSCA comes from the Henriksen barn, is fresh off a win and will get a lot of attention.

Race 7

(6) ALLSTAR SEELSTER comes from the Darling barn, qualified very strong and gets Jamieson in the bike. Darling has had nothing but success since his winter return. (3) REGAL BABE showed the speed last year needed for this class and is fresh off a pair of strong qualifiers. (1) DRAGON SEELSTER gets post relief, has the speed and should be forwardly-placed this week.

Race 8

(7) LARRYS MIST got the job done last week at this class and comes from Moreau's barn. (10) HISTORIAN will have to overcome post 10, but he's been racing at his best in his last three starts in this class. (2) BETTER ART draws inside, comes from the Puddy barn and has hit the board in two of his last three.

Race 9

(4) BAD TO THE BONE qualified very strong with a :26 4/5 final frame. He appears ready in his first start to the season. (5) HOPE FOR BADLANDS won his qualified in fine form, has some breeding to him and comes out of Robinson's barn, which has been terrific this season. (2) SAVAGE SEELSTER finished second in this class last week in a good effort. He draws well, gets Waples back in the bike and should offer a fair price.

Race 10

(3) CHERYLS SURPRISE has won three of her last four, moves onto this circuit and may offer a price. (8) PRYNNE HANOVER is a horse I'm hoping for a price on as she enters the McKinnon barn. (5) DEAR ARYSS draws much better, has gate-speed when needed and may offer a price.
