Grand Circuit Co-Stars On Giant Racing Weekend
Elims, Divisions And A Prep
The May 4 no-takeout Pick 4 at Cal-Expo is, again, the last four races of the program, from 11 through 14. Let’s look at some likely contenders that could make it a worthy hit.
(6) Red Star Popeye was impressive finishing third while tampering a great deal with the outer route. Let’s single him and go for the throat right from the start.
(4) Preciosita is sitting on a big mile. Last week she took the long way around and got the show at 8-1. She is edgy as well as our first-leg candidate and probably will offer as much value. (7) Jane The Brain may be overlooked in this field and could play a major role after a disappointing mile as a well-supported contender. Forgiving her that mile may be the key to using her here, most likely at a higher rate.
(2) Village Benjamin may be on a streak now and win for us again here. Vallandingham has him sharp now. (6) King Carver broke and had no chance to recover and participate. The race before that made us use him last week and we should add him again here.
There looks like a lot of activity can go on in the final leg but (2) Max’s Illusion may be the.one to close the deal. He placed with convincing strength last week and is in the perfect spot to strike.
