Running Aces has a 9-race card this evening with the 0.50 Late Pick 4 starting in Race 6. The guaranteed pool has been increased to $5,000, and the sequence will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Dum Luk Mooss (4-1)-This 4-year-old has 1 win in 41 starts but it came this year and fits with this crew. This is the spot to get sucked around and roll by late.
3-Bobleeswagger (3-1)-Steps-up after a gate to wire win and paced the back half in 58.2. Plano should be racing near the top of the stack and looks like a main player.
4-Arnie's Army (7/2)-Drops and gets a new pilot in Dean Magee as Svendsen steers his own, #7. Has the speed to be in the hunt and best to respect chances.
1-A And C Artist (4-1)-Won last off a pocket ride and now steps-up but there are no standouts in this field. Will look for a similar trip and could be in the winner's circle again.
7-Wonder Bull (3-1)-Didn't fair well versus Open II company and now makes the 2nd start for Longo off a claim. Fits better here and this veteran could bounce back tonight.
6-Star Track Hanover (5-1)-Comes off a nice win so steps back up to the Open Handicap class and will use right back. Looking for some value and will fade the program chalk #9.
7-All American N (6-1)-Hasn't been able to beat #9-Mandeville in the last 2 races. But has a post edge this time and will be making his 3rd local start. Plano takes over, that's a positive driver change and should offer a square price.
3-Imma Tank (3-1)-Tank takes on easier and gets a new pilot in Svendsen. This smells like a drop and pop situation.
5-Paddy Murphy (4-1)-This 6-year-old could be better on the drop and will be making his 3rd local start. Needs a trip and Dean Magee can work one with this post draw.
