Tonight, the headliners at Woodbine Mohawk Park are 3-year-old fillies competing in two divisions of Ontario Sires Stakes-Gold action. The popular 0.20 Pick 5 with a $50,000 guaranteed pool kicks-off the card and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
7-What Chapter-Just missed in last from same post, has minded manners in last 2, could be dialed on high tonight.
8-Cruising In Style-Qualified well versus tough 4-year-olds, faced better than this but needs a trip in season debut.
9-Y C Broadway-In fine form and Filion could leave or grind it out, should be in the mix.
1-Stolen Art-Flew home in 54.1 from the 7-hole on a "good" track, ML chalk should be a major player.
2-Sportsline-3-year-old has won 4 straight at "b" tracks, last was impressive, best to not overlook.
5-Alta Shelby N-Just caught near the wire by #1 in 1st try off the bench, might be tighter and even the score.
6-Teddys Littleangel-Gets post relief, makes 4th start of the year and with a top effort can challenge #8.
8-Haveoneforme-Winner of 2 straight and 5 of 7 lifetime is probably a clean trip away from another picture.
1-Dreamy Fella-Stepped up to this level and didn't have a smooth journey, can surprise with a better a start.
3-Kwik Talkin-Was bet in last when facing better, post draw should help and is in the hunt.
5-A Boy Named Suuzz-Drops, draws well and McNair takes a spin, can win at a square price if brings "A" game.
7-Mongolian Hero N-ML chalk has had some dull efforts but takes a good drop and this is a spot to shine.
1-Strength Ofa Woman-Camera shy mare has struggled against better, could be a drop and pop scenario.
2-Cabertoss-Will toss last when broke from the 8-hole, McNair sticks and was bet last time, will respect tonight.
3-Miss Jubilee Hill-0-4 this year, hasn't been close but drops and should like the company, using at a square price.
