Racing Analysis

01/22/21

RACE 1

5- has won two in a row at this level with ease, Dex stays up, wins again

4- drops a level and has the right to improve

2- doesn’t get away from the gate all too well, can be heard from if he stays close early

RACE 2

2- has taken a long time to get to the races, qualified ready to win, needs to avoid a bobble

10- racing well right now, will look to take advantage if my top pick miscues

5- gets a significant driver change and a nice starting spot

RACE 3

1- drops to the bottom TM level and moves way in, probably won’t get 10-1 but I still like

2- YG knows this guy, decent shot it here

6- has been knocking at the door, scratched sick last time, threat if ready

RACE 4

3- bottoms out after enduring a tough trip last time, should be tough here

1- left hard and worked out a nice trip two weeks ago, rail draw helps a bunch 

5- left from post nine and just got nipped at the wire, versatile sort

RACE 5

10- closes well week in week out, will swoop them all if the pace is honest

7- could be overbet here, one of a few in here with a good chance to win

2- old timer is on the comeback trail, was in too tough in his first start back, should progress forward

RACE 6

7- solid mare drops to a winning level, needed her last coming off the layoff

9- could be at the mercy of the pace but she can close well, usable here

1- steps up to tackle some more seasoned foes, not totally out of the mix

RACE 7

8- moved down the backside and won decisively, steps up and has a good shot to repeat

7- gets some class relief, consistent sort

1- definite player in here, has been sneaking under the radar 

RACE 8

7- second start Lasix and drops one level, top choice

3- nice mare always gives an honest effort

10- has been leaving from outside posts and racing well, will have to do the same tonight

RACE 9

2- third start off the shelf, AMac and a class drop, I like

7- also dropping here, hinted at a forward progression last time

6- needs to get off the starting car without issues, if he does he’s a threat

RACE 10

5- my choice in a wide open race, likes to show speed and could sit a pocket trip

4- has been battling better mares recently, can make an impact here

7- earned the right to take these on after dispatching of lesser at Freehold, confident now

RACE 11

1- moves back down to the rail and that gives her a strategic advantage

2- was a handful in her M1 debut, hopefully they figured out the rigging

6- needed that last one, could use a live cover tow

RACE 12


1- back down to a better level, fast enough to control this

5- has a bad case of seconditis, could finish there again

6- doing decent work of late, gimmick player

RACE 13

1- willing to take a flyer on him, gets a driver and could surprise these 

8- decent race last time, would be well inclined to leave the gate for a seat

2- DD takes over, threat if he minds his manners
