Spot plays for Churchill Thursday 4-30-2009 posted by Johnny Matheis
For Thursday's big crowd at Churchill, there are some spot plays.
In the third race, there are 7 entrants. It's a good time to against the struggling
Vance stable, which will eventually come back around. WILD SUNDAY shows good form at Fairgrounds, and Fairgrounds horses are kicking tail. He was claimed by an owner-trianer team of the Larues. MR ZARROW looks like a strong second. MESS NERA looks to round out the trifecta. If Wild Sunday goes over 5-2, take him to win and place. Good superfectas are 1 with 34 with All with All, then 1, 3, with 1,3, 4, with 1,3,4 2, 7, with All, and a tri box and exacta box on 1-3-4. A saver superfecta on the 1-3-4-7 box, and a 1 with the 2,3,4,5, 7 all the way down. Remember, these are 10 cent superfectas.
Race Five has MILITARY LIKE with some speed and dropping for a pretty good stable of the Pitts. At 7-2 or over, she's worth a win-place, and show in an eight horse field. Superfectas should be a box on 2-4-5-6, and also a wheel the 4 with the 2,5, 6 with the 2, 5, 6, with All, then a 2,4 with a 2,4, with All with All. Follow with a tri box on 2-4-5 and an exacta box on 2-4-5-6.
Race 6 is a chance to take advantage of Foley's drop. The Foleys hit hard the first 2 or 3 days, then slack off. So now Greg Foley, who has won 2 of 3 starts, can be left out of the superfecta. SMOKE WARNING is much the class here, and should be played if he gets over 9-5, but CRAZY COYOTE has good form at Tufway, and looks to match him. Take an exacta box on the 1 and 5, then bet the 5 across the board if it is over 9-2. Superfectas can be 1,5 with 1,3,5,6,7 all the way down, then a box on 1-5-6-7, then 5 with 1, 6 with All with All. A tri saver can be a 1,5 with 1,5,6,7 with 1,3,5,6,7.Continue reading "Spot plays for Churchill Thursday 4-30-2009"
