September 30, 2019

Northfield Park has 15-races scheduled for a Monday night card. The Early Pick 4 begins in Race 7, the sequence has a $10,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 7

1-Arthur Pendragon-ML chalk is in a good spot and gets needed post relief. Can get overdue win with a good steer.
4-Anarchy Hanover-Merriman takes over from trainer on a drop and this is could be a spot to shine.
6-Scarlet Cat-Has had trouble at this level but field isn't deep and now Wrenn steers instead of the trainer.

Race 8

1-Movie Star-Makes 3rd start for new barn after being bought for $16k, has speed, could be ready in 1st Nfld start.
4-Flying Shekel-1st local start was good now gets a new trainer and Wrenn sticks, maybe Lasix finally helps.
5-My Hearts Rockin-Took long way around, pace was quick and faded, drops now, is speedy but needs a trip.

Race 9

2-Brian J-Comes off sharp win and drops in a for tag, 7/5 chalk figures to be in the hunt but Merriman takes #3.
3-Dance Life Well-Merriman sticks with beaten chalk, 9/5 second favorite makes second start for new barn.

Race 10

1-Alan-3-year-old has faced tough foes but now takes on older, post draw should help the cause.
4-Norman Skidd Marks-Qualified well with hopples, will take a swing in an open affair.
5-PC's Alleyway-Drops to same level as last win and now Wrenn steers. Should be bet and will need a top effort.
6-Martz Creek Liby--Using at 25-1 in ML. Drops and fits here, start is key and can leave to get a an up-front seat.
