Woodbine Race 4, 7 furlongs Claiming $8,000 3L (2:35 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Bear’s Music (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 Nocryinginbaseball (7/2)
Other Contenders: #3 Onmywaytothetop (4/1), #11 Rebellious Love (3/1)
Analysis: Nocryinginbaseball has a good resume, keeps Contreras and takes a drop back to where she belongs. Onmywaytothetop found the right formulas in final few of 2014, should be able to close at this distance and her well-spaced works over a long period suggests she is ready. Rebellious Love has the back class to whip these, ran very well in last and Pizarro has been riding like a champ. Bear’s Music comes from a barn that is off to the best start ever, Da Silva gets aboard and her running style should put her in the mix.
Woodbine Race 7, 7 furlongs Optional $80,000 (4:10 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Ultimate Destiny (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #10 Pablo Del Monte (3/1)
Other Contenders: #5 Bear No Joke (6/1) #8 Urban Forester (5/2)
Analysis: Pablo Del Monte, not lacking in Grade One experience, comes in to town for the dangerous Wesley Ward stable, and the trainer brings his own rider. Bear No Joke hasn’t won in a while but leaving out trainer Reade Baker and one of his top horses is usually unwise. Urban Forester runs for the hottest trainer in Canada with a rider that has a high win percentage with the conditioner. Ultimate Destiny should be a good price for the lesser celebrated trainer and rider, but he is consistent with his speed numbers and effort.
