The Monday night feature at Mohawk Park rolls in Race 6, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 is a challenging sequence which starts 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.
4-Sir Galahad-In from Lon off 2 good efforts, camera shy but fits with this crew.
5-Shadow Of Lindy-This might be a spot to leave and control the race, could be sitting on a big try at a square price.
6-Phil The Thrill-5/2 choice finally back in 7-days, had a 56.1 back half in last, could take a picture with best effort.
4-Capitano Italiano-Captaintreacherous colt sizzled the last 3/4's in final qualifier, looks ready to roll off the bench.
5-Beach Baby Bee-2nd start on Lasix and last was better, comes back in 7-days and will use instead of ML chalk #3.
7-Bronsons Delight-Respecting Filion's choice over #6 & #9, could know how good this colt can be after tonight.
5-Free Willy Hanover-Mare has made it look easy in last 2 so will respect, winning 3rd straight may not be as easy.
6-P L Jill-Best chance might be to blast out to get the jump on #5 and #7 and hope for best.
7-B Yoyo-Shouldn't be hurt from starting outside in a short field, a quick pace could make difference versus this crew.
2-BS Tyrrific-Has been facing tougher and this is a spot to shine, worth a swing at a square price.
4-Mister Godro-Flew down the lane when dropped to this class, thinking Jamieson will be more aggressive tonight.
5-Levy Taylore-A ++ trainer change off the Shepherd claim, should be kept in striking range from this post.

Race 5) 4,5,7
Race 6) 5,6,7
Race 7) 2,4,5
