Friday Febuary 1: Cal Expo Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

February 1, 2019

Cal Expo has an 11-race card ready to roll tonight. The feature comes in Race 4, an Open Trot with a $6,500 Purse. The 0.20 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 8, it has a $30,000 guaranteed pool with a 16% takeout and will be my focus. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 8 

2-Laissez Moi Passer-Finds another easy spot, should make it 2 in a row, but 8-year-old doesn't always show up. 
4-Hi Ho's Little Rev-Drops and can beat #2 if firing on all cylinders. 

Race 9 

1-Cowboys Dirtyboots-Raced big in last at 3/2 but fell short, can make amends tonight. 
4-Who Dat Love-Trip dependent but this is a spot to shine. 
6-Oh Yeah-In good form and can roll late. Plano has choices, should get into striking distance or could leave. 
7-A Bay Bay-Burned out and faded in last. 12-year old could grind way around and at 10-1 in the ML is worth a swing. 

Race 10 

1-Bettor Lady-ML chalk drops to a comfortable spot and Plano gets back in the bike. 
5-Surprisingly Sweet-Big effort to win last with a 56.2 last 1/2, faces many of same. 
6-Burn My Villa-Drops out of Opens and gets Sobey back, expecting better. 

Race 11 

3-Lincoln-Been a while since a picture but last was better and now makes 4th start in Cornelison barn. 
4-Silent Rescue-Drops to the level of past success, looks like a player. 
6-Walker Meister-Has had excuses and might be overlooked at the windows, best to respect connections.
