Back to Woodbine for Superfecta Sunday

We go North for some exciting Turf racing on this Superfecta Sunday.   Oh Canada, the horses, the horses are calling....

Woodbine Race 10 {Canadian International~G1~1 1/2 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A magnificent field of eleven will go to the green in this annual high level contest.  There is some speed and forwardly placed types to keep the pace singing.  This is a highly competitive field with anyone of these horses capable of getting to the winners circle.  Once again we shall attempt to put together a triumphant 20 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#11 Slumber [GB] (M. Smith / Mott) has a slight edge with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two superb peaking workouts.  This will be his third race of the year.  He has the ability to stay close to the pace and sleek through the pack in the stretch run. This guy is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$4 SHOW.

#5 Joshua Tree [IRE] (Moore / Dunlop) loves this course.  He was last seen racing in France and secured a very good Racing Post rating.  By default he may lead this group through steady fractions and explode in the stretch gaining another victory at this event.  The well traveled veteran is 100% in the money at Woodbine over three starts.

#8 Forte Dei Marmi [GB] (Da Silva / Attfield) should challenge with a couple of good last out speed numbers and four sensational peaking workouts.  This guy holds the second highest speed number at the distance as well as the second highest over the Woodbine Turf.  He will be tracking and closing swiftly.

#9 Seismos [IRE]  (Atzani / Wohler) could be the surprise bringing some very good running from France.  His last out was a marathon two and a half mile distance.  He sports a 60% in the money record at the distance in ten starts.  The lad has some tactical speed which should be could be used to great advantage among this pack.

20 CENT Superfecta Box ($4.80)

#11 Slumber [GB]  +  #5 Joshua Tree [IRE]  +  #8 Forte Dei Marmi [GB]  +  #9 Seismos [IRE].
