There are some obvious favorites in the Queen's Plate Trial-Woodbine Oaks double that makes up half of the late Pick 4 on Sunday at Woodbine, and more importantly for people looking to play the $100,000 guaranteed pool, they're all vulnerable.

That's not to say they won't win, but as long as they all don't win, there is money to be made spreading in each of the four legs. I'm pretty much punting on the first leg, going ALL on one ticket to my top choices the rest of the way, and using seven on the main ticket that spreads elsewhere.

I don't get too cute in the Plate Trial, as Conquest Curlinate and Danzig Moon are just better than these, but if the outside posts or pace conspire against them then my other three longshots give us a chance at a nice score.

The Woodbine Oaks is my hopeful money maker. I won't not use London Tower, as she is the most likely winner with local experience and the pedigree to stretch out, but Red River Heidi off that 95 Speed Rating last out is on all tickets at 20-to-1 morning line, as even her consistent 80s before the jump up fits with these.

The maiden race to close things out isn't quite as tough as the opening leg, but it's close. #3 Robin's Song has a lot of class under the second dam and should enjoy the surface switch.
