Woodbine Mohawk Park has a competitive Monday night card set to roll at 7:10 EST. The feature comes in Race 7, a condition trot with a $25,000 purse. The very popular 0.20 Early Pick 4, with a $50,000 guaranteed pool begins in Race 4 and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Laneside Sportsgrl-Flew home with a 54.4 last half, draws better, could be sitting on a big try and break maiden.
3-Shesonehotwriter-Staked last year and has the speed to beat this bunch at 8-1 in ML if dials it up in 2nd start.
9-Sugar Shadow-Qualified with a 1.54.4 mile and finished well, could be ready in season debut for Team McNair.
4-Marquis Volo-Was in too tough last week, JMac returns and can put in play if not too far back at the start.
6-Eyes Cool-Will excuse last break versus better and Drury returns tonight, best to respect, knows how to win.
8-Ramas Last Son-Steps-up after 3 sharp efforts, needs some breaks from this post but could pop at a nice price.
1-Lyons Coppertop-Qualifier was too good to ignore, can take a picture if fires hot in season debut.
4-Big Bully-Roy takes a seat and that should help, should be in the hunt at a square price if finds live cover.
7-Windsun Ricky-Will toss last after an awful start, expecting a better steer from McNair.
8-Machpaperscissors-54.4 last half wasn't enough for slow starter, expecting Jamieson to be closer at top of stretch.
4-Dream Together-May need a race and be driven conservatively but doesn't have to be at very best to win this.
5-PL Jill-Skipped a start but might be beneficial, may leave, get on the engine and Musical Rhythm isn't a worry.
6-Cue Hall-Might get a pocket trip again and that almost worked perfectly last week.
7-B Yoyo-Not sure Roy steps on the gas off the gate, but regardless 9-year-old battles and best to respect.
