Good afternoon (PDT). We are currently reconsidering the format and content of this here Web log. We appreciate your patience while we sort things out. We are hopeful the adjustments will be a win-win for all concerned. Meantime, we will be posting daily, though not as you may have been accustomed to.
All right then. The last Thoroughbred race of the evening on the North American continent comes from Northlands Park in lovely Edmonton, Alb., Canada. The All-In-One V6 considers the race — Race 8 on the card — contentious, with the main contention being #4 Gilly Gilly, #6 Tawow and #2 Shadydeed.
Complicating the issue is the king-hell pro-early-speed bias at the 6½-furlong distance. The WMF is 380 and the ‘E’ (Early)-type runners have accounted for 78 percent of the winners. Gilly Gilly has sharp early speed, and she easily sustains it to the wire; hence the morning-line favoritism at 2½-1.
On the other hoof, rank outsider Tawow, 30-1 in the official track programme, has only the first-call speed, before tailing off dramatically. Yet if something untoward should happen…
Still, Tawow would need much more than that to happen, and sometimes things indeed do happen. Make sure you get every bit of those double-digit odds. Shadydeed is not brilliant, but she plods around well enough to get into the exotics. #5 Toccalot is the stranger-danger; she’s ranked at Fair Odds of 2½-1 on the conventional Betting Line but unloved by LifeLiner.
Thank you. Best wishes. Goodbye. Bye-bye.
