Friday, November 01: Meadowlands Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

November 1, 2019

The Meadowlands has 13 races set to roll tonight with the feature coming in Race 2, a Preferred Trot with a $30,000 purse. The 0.50 Pick 4 begins in Race 8. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool with a 15% takeout and will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 8

1-New Heaven (8-1)-Has been facing tough foes at Yonkers all year and from this post, class may show at a square price.
6-Pat Matters (3-1)-4-year-old mare has had a nice year and has only made 11 starts, looks to be in the mix.
7-Top Flight Angel (7/2)-Should like the company, not so sure I will like the price and is 0-12 at the Big M. But tough to leave out versus this crew.
10-Misslarose (10-1)-Post makes this a difficult task but has gate speed to repeat and this barn can keep them going.

Race 9

2-Waiting On A Woman (6-1)-Drops in 2nd Big M start and fits, 11-year-old has won 9 of 54 here.
6-Lucky Sheila (9/2)-Got a nice drive and made 2-moves to win last, looks like a major player again.
7-Muscle High (3-1)-Made a big brush and couldn't hold a 5 length lead 2 weeks ago. That's not great but barn has been rolling and does well at the Big M. Using and hoping 2nd start at this level and 3rd for this trainer will be better.

Race 10

6-Top Of The Mark (7/2)-Even effort in last, now makes 2nd start for Harris and gets a positive driver change.
9-Winning Linc (3-1)-Comes off a sharp win but this field might be tougher and so is the post. Does come out of 2 quick miles and can score an encore with a good trip.

Race 11

6-Credit Fraud (8-1)-Comes off a nice win in 2nd start off the bench. Likes to win and does well at the Big M, best to respect for another picture.
8-Say You Do (2-1)-Winner this year of >$98k tops the field by a wide margin and has won 5 of 7 here. Question marks are the start from this post and if can mind manners.
