Woodbine Mohawk Park starts the week with an 11-race card. The feature rolls in Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a
$34,000 purse. The 0.20 Early Pick 4 begins in Race 4, the sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Kameran Hanover-Flattened out last week after coming 1st over, looking for a more in 3rd start off the bench.
3-Marquis Volo-Destroyed cheaper and steps-up but knows how to win and will use for hot barn at a square price.
5-Meadowbranch Memo-Loses McClure but should be a price, pace may be quicker and could roll late, will respect.
6-Bautista-Not sure if ML chalk is at his best, but this is a spot to shine and best can beat this group.
3-Fargo Hanover-Makes season debut after a pair of qualifiers, fits here if fires ready off the bench.
7-Swift Ally-Cruised home by 5 lengths to break maiden at PPk, will respect but has been off 5-weeks.
8-Bluewater Beach-Looks like a different horse this year, Auciello trainee could be ready to roll in 2019 debut.
1-Quadrangle-Can roll late but was too far back in last two, starting inside should help, looks like a player.
5-Mister Magic-ML chalk has been very good since claimed, winner of 4 out of 5 deserves respect.
7-Odd Ball-Will toss last when off 2-weeks, return to recent form puts 5-year-old in the hunt.
8-Derf Hanover-Sharp effort after missing a start, if steps-up off that try, can take a picture despite post draw.
2-Darcee N-Taking a swing with camera shy Cullen trainee, could trip out at a price in a race without a lot of form.
8-PL Idaho-Can leave and Roy has options to work a good trip, drops + 2nd start for Moreau could be the charm.
Race 4) 2,3,5,6
Race 5) 3,7,8
Race 6) 1,5,7,8
Race 7) 2,8
Total Ticket Cost) $19.20 for $0.20
