How to play the Pick 4

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - Play Laurel Park - by Kenny Peck


TAP THE MARK comes off a win where he beat a cou­ple of th­ese same ri­vals, and if he can run back to that Beyer he looms tough here. Ex­tra dis­tance a ques­tion but there’s no real rea­son he can’t ben­e­fit from go­ing seven fur­longs. CHARG­ING LION cuts back to a sprint af­ter clip­ping heels and fall­ing in his lat­est; barn shows a flat-bet profit with turn­backs (2).


PA­CIFIC GALE ships in from New York with com­pet­i­tive Beyers, and she also seems to have the right run­ning style as this sprint may set up for a closer. SPLIT TIME turns back to seven pan­els and he is prove at this dis­tance, as well as over this strip. SPE­CIAL REL­A­TIV­ITY has some of the best Beyers in the field, and her tac­ti­cal speed should en­sure a good trip. AMER­ICA’S TALE and ESTILO FEMENINO are wide but both have speed (5).


I’ll use all 10 of them in this re­stricted al­lowance race, as it does seem to be fairly wide open. To wit: NO MORE TALK is un­proven at the dis­tance and comes off a sub-par ef­fort, al­beit against bet­ter, and he’s the 9/5 Morn­ing Line fa­vorite (10).


PASSCODE has crossed the wire first by open lengths in each of his last two but only the last one counted, as he in­ter­fered with FOL­LOW THE DOG and was dis­qual­i­fied. Th­ese two may have an edge on the oth­ers if they work out trips be­hind a quick, con­tested pace (2).
