The Feb. 4 no-takeout Pick 4 at Cal-Expo once again challenges us in an effort to take down the pool. Here are our suggested contenders with comments:
(4) Jet Tet Tet closed well for third last week, likes this track and is due to pick up some bigger checks. (6) Roger J won at 7-1 last week but did it like he should have been 4-5 with a huge brush at the half. (7) Hanover DGN was well backed and placed.
(1) Irish Whiskey had early foot but hung as the choice and still took second. (5) Dreaming Of Amy is a rank outsider but must be respected off of a 21-1 race where he dueled early to be the leader, a move that used him up but warned of better miles ahead.
(5) Devilish Donnie is a good single in this crew. He shared a dead heat for fourth last week but got that far with an overland journey. He loves this track and seems to dominate this lacking-in-class field.
(3) Desired Result could not close the deal last week while respected at 3-1. Finishing third was not embarrassing, though, and another chance to do well has surfaced. (4) Preciosita made a strong move that was moot but cannot be dismissed if a better trip is in the works here.
