Woodbine Mohawk Park has a 10-race card set to go this evening. The feature rolls in Race 6, a Preferred Pace with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 starts in Race 4, its usual spot in the lineup. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-Cheyenne Ford-Hasn't won since joining Gillis barn, Filion sticks and could take a picture at a square price.
4-Mister Godro-1st start for Moreau and McClure takes a seat, will respect connections and look for a slight upset.
5-Dovuto Hanover-On 2/25 was claimed from Auciello for $23k, now he claims back for $12k and I'll use here.
7-Crocadile Canyon-3-1 ML chalk was claimed back by Shepherd and is sharp, can't dismiss but will shoot against.
1-Catch The Dream-Takes a meaningful drop and is in position to be on or close to the lead throughout, no excuses allowed.
1-Musical Rhythm-ML choice should make the most of drawing the wood, but even so not easy to trust.
2-St. James Gate-Trip dependent but is sharp and shouldn't blush versus this field.
3-Free Willy Hanover-Tailed off in last 2 but this is a spot to get sucked around and sweep by late.
4-Prince Giovanni-Gets a post edge compared to top foes, fits and should be up close at a square price.
8-Avalanche Hanover-Pace could be honest and race could set-up nicely if in striking range at top of the lane.
9-Lisvinnie-Is another who could roll late as long as minds manners.
10-Jimmy Be Good-Big try from 7-hole when claimed, will need best but usually in the hunt and post helps the price.
Race 4) 1,4,5,7
Race 5) 1
Race 6) 1,2,3/
Race 7) 4,8,9,10
Total Ticket Cost) $9.60 for $0.20
