Northfield Park wraps up the weekend with a 15-race card, the feature is in Race 13 and the Super High-5 Pool has a $10,000 guaranteed pool. The Early Pick 4 begins in Race 7 and the Late Pick 4 starts in Race 11, both have a $10,000 guaranteed pool. The Late Pick 4 sequence will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Sam Has Class-Dropped down in last race, took a ton of action and couldn't last on lead, another chance tonight.
4-Muscle On Broadway-Doesn't win often but this is a spot to shine, drops and is a player.
3-Caribbean Beach-Big try from 8-hole in last, now makes 2nd start for new trainer and 2nd time Lasix.
5-Rupp-Page takes a spin and that should help, needs a trip but could score at a square price.
6-Play It Again Sam-Not having a great year, but ML chalk gets a good post draw, should be tough in here.
3-Pearl Crush-Inside post draw means chances for success go up, could get sucked around and rally late.
5-Latenite Destiny-Positive driver change and post relief, could surprise at a square price.
7-Good Lookin Woman-3rd start for trainer and first two were not bad, worth a swing at 20-1 in the ML.
9-Talkaboutaqueen-Winner of 2 in a row is always in the hunt, post is rough but should be respected.
1-Panoramic View-A much softer spot for HoP invader who doesn't like to pass foes in the lane but gets A. Merriman.
2-Max Hanover- Like #1 drops and is looking for an overdue win, gets Wrenn and it won't get much easier than this.
$1.00 Late Pick 4
