There is a 10-race card set to go at Mohawk Park tonight with the feature coming in Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 rolls in Race 4, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Real Willy-Has improved under Moreau and will need a top effort, but best to not overlook.
4-R Bazingga-Slow starter has a big chance for a picture but needs to be in better striking range than in last.
8-Stolen Art-Flew home off a soft pace, now gets JMac back and is looking to make it 3 out of last 4.
1-Phil The Thrill-Tuned up with a nice qualifier versus a fine stakes horse, gets a big post edge over main foes.
8-Its Just Too Much-Filion takes a seat for Roy and faces easier, this is a spot to shine if minds manners.
9-Lone Wolf Terror-On the lead and broke in last at this class, should like the company, dangerous if stays flat.
4-Buzz-Will take a swing this guy gets the on engine without much strain and can carry speed further tonight.
6-PL Jill-Will use at a 10-1 in the ML and leave #5 out. Gets post relief, should get a better trip and can beat these.
7-Kameran Hanover-Steps up after a nice win, upswing could continue at a square price.
5-Ideal Jet-ML chalk knows how to win and takes a good drop. Should relish the company and be a major player.
9-Tymal Peacemaker-Filion steers and gets off a Moreau trainee, can roll late with the right trip.
10-Officer Jones-Similar to #9 and could find some good cover following that 5-year-old and upset the chalk.
Race 4) 2,4,8
Race 5) 1,8,9
Race 6) 4,6,7
Race 7) 5,9,10
Total Ticket Cost) $16.20 for $0.20
