The feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park rolls in Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 starts in Race 4, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Dunbar Hall-Last looked better than the line, couldn't gain on sharp leader but top 2 finishers are not in this field.
5-Mr Contestant-Showed some rare gate speed and almost lasted, moves in a couple of spots, looks like a player.
7-Royal Witch-Takes a good step-up after an easy win in 52.3, has back class and could string wins together.
2-Just For You-Should like the company in 3rd Wbsb start and benefits from the post draw at 8-1 in the ML.
6-Cloud Nine Hanover-Price shot steps-up after an easy win, has the speed to race up-close and trip out.
10-Dr Spengler-This is a soft spot, has been bet against better and if dialed on high can win from this post.
1-Cinderella Delight-Big effort in the slop from the 9-hole, will need best for a picture but will respect chances.
3-Kylie Seelster-ML chalk should be tough to beat on a dry strip, this is a spot to shine.
3-Kameran Hanover-Racing well in last 2 and comes back again in sequence, beaten chalk is a player.
4-Dream Together-There are reasons to avoid but will use, doesn't need to be 100% to beat these.
5-Miami-Nice effort from the 8-hole and now McNair will steer, could pop at a square price.
