Northfield Park has a 15-race program set to begin at 6:00 EST. The $1.00 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 11. The sequence has a $10,000 guaranteed pool, and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
4-Not Today (5/2)-Drops out of Open company where the water was too deep. Fits better here and should be forwardly placed throughout.
5-Hippestcatintown (2-1)-Was bet down to 2/5 in its NFLD debut and tried to wire the field. This Burke trainee fell 1/2 length shy and will look for an even better effort tonight.
2-Ok Kudo (7/2)-Drops in the 2nd start for the Holzman barn and this time isn't stuck with the 8-hole. Davis should have in striking range turning for the wire and could reward new connections.
3-Sir Charles Of Sky (5/2)-Charles drops to the level of recent success and Grismore could have this Burke 4-year-old racing near the top of the stack. Looks like a player in a short price affair.
5-One Last Laugh (7-1)-Steps-up after wiring the field last week and the fractions were snappy. Will respect chances with this post draw and should offer a solid price.
9-Bettor Than Spring (5/2)-Might be an odds-on choice if drew inside and will need some help with this post. There is some gate speed inside and Myers may end up with a close-up seat and then use a big brush to take control.
5-True To Mach (7/2)-Likes to grind it out and one move-type should get an opportunity to roll by down the lane with this post draw.
6-You'remyhearthrob (7/2)-Not the handiest but has good speed. If finds a up-close seat, chances for a picture go up. Needs a good steer to beat this kind and will rely on Grismore doing his part.
