Definition of Down Table
Down Table is a billiards term that is a part of Pool Table Terminology.
In one pocket, down table is the playing zone down on the racking end of the table, including both billiard player's pockets and up to the side pocket area.
A down table game would be a game in which the balls stay pretty much in the racking end of the table, never really getting pushed significantly out of play or up table. Please note that some old school players refer to the upper end of the table, which is the opposite end from the scoring pockets, as down table.
They apparently use the term down table interchangeably to refer to the other end of the table, regardless of which end they are referencing from.
See: up table for more on the meaning of "Down Table".
Down Table - Usage
I'd send that 4 ball down table in to the left corner pocket. That is about your best shot at this point, unless you want to play safe.
