Maywood Park - Race Card Analysis
Thursday, May 31, 2012
(Program odds in parentheses)
7 - MSRICHSTYLE (5/2)
Found herself pushed back to the end last week. Came flying to get up for third. Looks like a standout against this group. Just needs clear sailing. Tonight's best bet.
4 - ROLLIN IN THE DEEP (8/1)
Rolled out to a quick lead last time out. Figures to show speed again and is a strong contender to get a piece of this.
8 - SURE ANYTIME (3/1)
Winless in 20 starts. Has not raced since 5/10 and draws dreaded eight post. Still, despite the negatives, this gal has hit the board in half of her starts this year. Looks like the best of the rest.
2 - ASK NO QUESTIONS (4/1)
Winless in 15 starts. Hits board at times and could again with a good inside trip.
1 - IAMLOVEDBYTHEKING (6/1)
Makes debut for Curtin barn. Was a distant fifth last time out from the rail. Might hang around for minor award.
3 - KATHY JEAN (10/1)
Was not very competitive with BMP claimers last time out. Strictly a long shot here.
5 - MY MOM IS SEXXY (12/1)
Judges scratch last time out. Prior races on the dull side. Toss.
6 - TICKET TIME (15/1)
Makes 2012 debut. Slow qualifier. Let's give her a race.
2 - BRILLANT ROSE (8/1)
Came on strong to just miss last time out. Can get to the front from here and might be tough to catch. Fave might need a race. Price could be right here.
7 - TWENTY-ONE BELOW (7/5)
Makes debut for Leonard barn. Has not raced since 5/2, when she faced off against much tougher. Mini layoff the only concern. Can handle these if ready.
6 - TOPVILLE BRIDGETTE (7/2)
Came out ready and won her 2012 debut. Tougher spot from out here, but she has some speed and should have good position. Figures to be in the mix.
8 - CYPRESS HILL SUDS (15/1)
Closed ground into a fast second half last week. Tough post here, but should be rolling late. Live one to hit the ticket.
3 - MISSY MUFFLER (15/1)
Tough trip took toll in her 2012 debut. Should build off that effort, but loses Oosting. Might sneak a share.
4 - FALL'S DELIGHT (10/1)
Long overdue. Usually close at the finish. Can get a piece with the right trip.
1 - SATRDAYNITESPECIAL (9/2)
Dull form. Maybe rail will help her grab a minor award.
5 - SPORTS DIXIE (20/1)
Makes debut for trainer Darrell Moore. Was not close last time out against BMP claimers. Watch for now.
1 - MACKENZIE'S POWER (3/1) ***Winner: $3.60 $2.80 $2.10***
Won easily the last time she was at this level. Could be in control again and be very tough to beat.
7 - NIGHT'S ALL NIGHT (2/1)
Seeks fourth win in a row. Affrunti barn remains red-hot. Wants early spot and will need to work for it from here. Main rival to the #1.
2 - STAR GAZED (7/2)
Should get a nice early spot and should land on the ticket somewhere.
5 - HARRIET POTTER (8/1)
Wired easier last week. Will likely seek front from here. Can hang around for a slice.
8 - SHES ASTREOS (6/1)
Flew late to get up in time last time out at BMP. Will need some breaks from out here, but is not completely out of this.
6 - VELVET GIRL (15/1)
Poor position last time out cost her. Gets Marcus tonight and could be heard from if the trip goes her way. Outside shot at the money.
3 - RIVER TSUNAMI (12/1)
Parlayed perfect trip to a second place finish last week. Trip might not come as easy this week. Shot at minor spoils.
4 - LITTLE BROWN SADIE (15/1)
Did not have much last week. Needs to bring more to threaten these.
2 - SPORTY BURBON (3/1)
Moves inside and drops to claimers. Looks to be on the engine from here and should not have much trouble against these.
4 - PEYTON'S PINKY (2/1)
Makes debut for Alton Grief barn. Has not raced since 5/3. Had been in great form. Mini layoff is the concern. Can threaten if ready.
3 - BABY HOLD ON (4/1)
Has not won in quite some time, but does hit the board on occasion. Gimmick hope.
8 - CAMS PRINCESS WAVE (8/1)
Makes Maywood debut. Draws poorly but gets Oosting. Watch tote for any clues.
1 - NACHOORDINARYGIRL (6/1)
Has not been very close in any of her races this year. Toss.
5 - JS WANAWIN (12/1)
Makes Maywood debut after facing cheaper at RP. Let's see a race.
6 - BELLA DEONA (15/1)
Did not do much of anything in her last race out at BMP. Need to see something positive.
7 - LANGTREE LILY (15/1)
Recent races dismal. Tough spot out here. Toss.
7 - LA CABANA (12/1)
Was never in position last time out against tougher. Tossed hints in prior races. Any Affrunti trained horses have to be considered live. Carpenter at the controls tonight and he has had success with this one in the past. Does not have much to beat. Price could be right.
9 - GO TUFFY (6/1)
Returns after a brief layoff. Conley barn hitting at good clip with class droppers and horses coming off layoffs. Figures to have good position here and is a strong contender with this group.
1 - MASTER JEEVES (9/2)
Made a couple moves last week in a game effort. Should get an easier trip here. Rates highly in this spot.
8 - GLASGOW GAMER (15/1)
Parked the mile last time out in a needed race. Rarely wins, but if he builds off that last race, he could contend for a minor award here.
6 - TROIX HANOVER (7/2)
Scratched sick last time. Not good. Has speed, but has not held off a field in a long time. Can share with these if ready.
2 - INDIAN RIDGE ZAK (8/1)
Battled last time out to a solid second place finish. Rarely wins, but can hit the board with a similar effort.
5 - SAND JAKE (3/1)
Returns to Maywood after struggling with some tougher foes at BMP. Might improve in this spot. Still need to see more before rating any higher.
3 - CAPTAIN RICE (15/1)
Blasted to the top last week, but threw it in reverse after the half. Needs to do more.
4 - DRAGON ON DEMAND (10/1)
Has not been close in weeks. Looks like an auto-toss for now.
8 - STEPH'S MELODY (6/1) ***Winner: $15.00 $4.80 $3.60***
Came through for us big time last week. Was parked the mile and still won. Should follow up cover and have a hot pace to close into. Have to string along. Might get a good price again.
7 - ARIZONA TALES (7/2)
Been facing tougher in recent weeks. Looks like a strong contender against this group.
9 - MIKAYLA'S ROCKETTE (8/1)
Racing very well lately and figures to sit in a good spot from here. Does not win often, but is usually close. Use in gimmicks.
1 - A PATCHY SUN (3/1)
Has some speed and with the rail, figures to be in contention throughout.
2 - POWER AND PURPOSE (9/2)
Figures to blast and could be part of a hot early pace. Will be in the mix.
3 - PLEZEN MR HACKER (10/1)
Another that will add spice to the early pace. Can get a piece of this if she can get a good early spot.
4 - FOX VALLEY KATRINA (15/1)
Form has gone south in recent weeks. Toss for now.
5 - DIXIE DARLIN (12/1)
Makes debut for respected trainer Willis. Form had been dismal. Figures to show improvement, but am watching for now.
6 - KB'S TK (15/1)
Recent races somewhat dull. Needs to do more to pull off the upset.
*****REMAINDER OF CARD CANCELLED*****
4 - CLEVER SADIE (7/2)
Parked the mile last week and was not all that far off at the end. Change to Warren could help. Can beat these with an easier trip. Has eleven lifetime wins on this track. Looks the best of a struggling lot.
5 - ECHOES IN MY SOUL (9/2)
Has faced some tough winners in recent weeks and has not been far off. Does not win often, but can share here.
1 - ANIGHTWITHWILMA (3/1)
Could see some improvement with the move to the rail. Tossed a little hint last week. Might hit the board.
3 - NASHVILLE KITTY (6/1)
Has not menaced in recent weeks. Switch to Oosting could help. Still looks like a long shot.
7 - BUTCHIE LIL TAX (12/1)
One of many in here that struggles to win. Been coming close lately. Cannot rule completely out.
2 - LADY ANN SPUR (8/1)
Was a non factor last time out at BMP. Has not won in ages. Can share with good trip.
6 - ALYCOLE (10/1)
Has not threatened in weeks. Toss for now.
8 - GYPSYS LITTLE STAR (15/1)
Has not won in ages. Has not been close. Auto toss.
9 - INTIMATE HALL (15/1)
Off form. Toss.
3 - AMERICAN LEASE (3/1)
Parked out to a scorching 55.2 half last week. Can only get an easier trip. Looks like a two horse race. The 2-3 exacta box appears to be the play here.
2 - DREAMSA SCOOTIN (5/2)
BMP shipper made a bold move before flattening out in last. Oosting chose this one over the #3. Shows some speed in lines. Fits well against this group.
1 - WESTERN BEAR (7/2)
The drop back to claimers and move to the rail should keep this guy in contention. Rarely wins, but is a viable contender to hit the board.
8 - FIRE AWAY (6/1)
Been holding his own against BMP foes. Figures to be a strong player in here as this field does not have much depth.
7 - FIRE FOOT (8/1)
Was a distant third last time out. Tough spot from out here. Pass.
4 - LEVI THUNDER THUNG (12/1)
Has not won or been close in quite some time. Toss.
5 - AIRY HEIR (12/1)
Has not hit the board in eons. Auto toss.
6 - CAPTAIN HOGG (15/1)
Has not threatened in any of his ten races this year. Toss.
7 - KENNANS NANCY LEE (3/1)
Found herself parked out last week and battled all the way to a second place finish. Appears to be plenty of early speed in here, so things could work out for this gal. With good cover, she could blow past these.
8 - MO VALLEY MAGGIE (5/2)
Tough spot from here, but she has been sharp for months. Usually seeks early lead and will be hard to catch if she can get to the top in decent shape.
6 - FURIOUS FIVE (4/1)
In a much easier spot here. Prefers the lead and will probably blast from here. Does not win all that often, but looks like a solid contender to hit the ticket.
1 - MADDISON PAIGE N (8/1)
Roberts and rail always a good combo. Horse has been sharp for weeks. Rates highly here.
2 - RONNY B GOOD (15/1)
Has not been all that far off in recent races. Should be in the mix from this spot. Gimmick contender.
3 - COLE STAR (6/1)
Sheds the eight hole. Has hit the board in half her starts this year. Oosting does well with this one. Another with a legit shot at the money.
4 - YANKEE EURO (12/1)
Not sure what to make of this one. Ships from BMP where she was not all that far off against much tougher in a start she figured to need. Not too familiar with driver Moore. If he proves capable, it looks like the horse fits and could be an interesting long shot to consider.
5 - EPONA (12/1)
Parlayed rail trip to a third place finish last week. Not likely to get an easy trip from this spot. Horse does her share of winning. Competitive race. Cannot completely rule out.
9 - SHE'S AUTOMATIC (3/1)
Getting closer and closer to an overdue win. Should have good position from here. Can power past these. Driver change to Warren could put this one over the top.
6 - DASHING MAJORETTE (7/2)
Showed her speed last week and just missed. Might try same tactics. Can be tough to collar. Overdue.
1 - WOLF CREEK CUPID (12/1)
Shift from eight post to rail should help the cause. Might hang in there for a share.
8 - CANDY N APPLES (15/1)
Parked out last week. Might suffer same fate with speed inside of her. Tough assignment.
2 - WINDY CITY JOANN (10/1)
Pushed back last time out. Has missed a couple weeks. Should have good position from here and can get a piece of this if ready to roll.
3 - PACING PENNY TWO (8/1)
Broke last time out at BMP. Been racing against cheaper. Looks like an outsider here.
4 - CHALLENGE MY HEART (9/2)
Rather dull effort last week as she rode the rail to a sixth place finish. Needs to show more.
5 - MARJAY DREAMS (6/1)
Hit the board against cheaper in last couple. Will need to do much more to contend here.
7 - LITTLE SWEETHEART (12/1)
Last three have been on the dull side. Tough spot from here. Pass.
7 - CUZIMADEMYMINDUP (7/2)
Has progressed nicely in two starts after a layoff. Did not have the easiest of trips last week and found a way to win. Classy sort rounding into form. Could follow up cover and wear down another field.
5 - MAKENA CAT (3/1)
Went a monster mile last week to just miss. Was parked much of the race and was a close second. Should get to the top from here. Horse has really rounded into great form and rates very highly against these.
8 - SLICKETY SPLIT (9/2)
Has not raced since 4/25. Tough spot from out here, but this gal also has class and trainer Willis has good numbers after layoffs. Contender if ready.
9 - DESERT FLOWER (12/1)
Driver change to Roberts could help turn things around for this gal. Should be in contention from here. Fits with these.
3 - TWILIGHT DELIGHT (10/1)
Third start back, draws a little better and Oosting returns. Figure to see a bigger effort out of this one. Price shot to consider.
4 - MELODIE HOTSPUR (12/1)
Winless in 15 tries this year. Not too far off recently. Can share with the right trip.
1 - PARTY TIL THE AM (8/1)
Steps up, but is in good form. Rail helps. Might find a way to grab a piece.
2 - JUDY'S JET (6/1)
BMP shipper has been racing well against cheaper. Looks overmatched here.
6 - TRENDY L (15/1)
Was a complete no-show last time out. Might be overmatched in here.
1 - COLE BLUE (9/2)
Been showing speed, then fading at BMP. Could be much tougher on the lead here. Won at this level at this track earlier in the year.
9 - CHEESE PLUMPER (3/1)
Looks like a great spot for the Plumper. Takes on much easier and gets Oosting. Might sit behind the #1 and try to fly down the open stretch. Contender.
6 - TIMELESS ARTIST (8/1)
Been taking on much tougher at BMP in recent weeks. Was a wire to wire winner the last time she raced at this class. Figures to contend here.
2 - SKINNY JEANS (5/2)
Looks like a major contender if ready to roll. Has not raced since 4/27. Figures to be on or near the lead.
4 - LYFSLYKABOXACHOCLT (6/1)
Has not had good position in a couple weeks. Takes on easier here. Can threaten with live cover.
7 - IM A SALLY SUE (15/1)
Made a bold and just missed last week at huge odds. Could get live cover from here and if the speed falters, she can pick up some pieces once again.
8 - BELLVALLEY MIRACLE (12/1)
Keeps coming close, but just can never quite get there. Has managed to hit the board in half of her tries this year. Would be a shock if she wins, but should certainly be used in those High Fives.
3 - LT'S SPORTY BABE (15/1)
Winless in 15 races this year. Form rather dull. Pass.
5 - PRIMROSE PATH (20/1)
Last two races were dismal. Pass for now.
MSRICHSTYLE (1st race) - Finished fifth
SPORTY BURBON (4th race) - Finished third
BRILLANT ROSE (2nd race) - Scratched
LA CABANA (5th race) - Finished sixth
