Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 9-Mohawk Gold Cup $100,000-Purse
2-McWicked (7/5)-World-class pacer should have things his own way despite being off close to a month.
8-Thinkbig Dreambig (5-1)-Got caught 1st over in a .54 2nd half, can fly late if the champ falters.
Race 10-Fan Hanover Final-$454,000 Purse
1-Tall Drink Hanover (4-1)-Followed #4 last week, makes 3rd start off the bench, looks to have best shot at an upset.
4-Warrawee Ubeaut (9/5)--Winner over $600k last year could be even better as a sophomore, the one to beat.
Race 11-North America Cup-$1,000,000 Purse
2-De Los Cielos Deo(4-1)-Turned heads in last when blistered 2nd half in 51.2, will respect but not sure on the trip.
4-Workin Ona Mystery (2-1)-Hard to find a fault, has been razor sharp, should get the lead or a 2-hole trip.
5-Captain Victorious (12-1)-Might surprise with some luck and could be overlooked at windows, using in gimmicks.
8-Captain Crunch (5/2)-Will excuse break in last, a main player despite drawing 8-hole and price will be better.
Race 12-Roses are Red Final-$330,000 Purse
4-Shartin N (4/5)-Winner of 7 of 8 this year and makes it look easy, barring an awful trip it should be 8 of 9 in 2019.
Race 9) 2,8
Race 10) 1,4
Race 11) 2,4,5,8
Race 12) 4
