Tonight, the Can-Am Pick 4 returns with a slight twist. Woodbine Mohawk Park has new start time on Fridays and the first post is now 7:50 EST. So, the opening leg is scheduled to roll at Mohawk in Race 10 at 10:50 EST, the second leg goes at the Meadowlands in Race 12 at 10:55 EST. The sequence includes Race 10-11 at Mohawk and Race 12-13 at the Big M.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Mohawk-Leg 1
3-Highland Dynamite-Camera shy but raced well from 8-hole after coming off a break, should be in the hunt.
4-Cheatalotpov-Making 4th start of year, twice beaten chalk has been trying hard and will respect chances.
7-Fingals Wave-Racing better as a sophomore, should be rolling late but will need a good cover flow.
10-All Wrapped Up-Has the gate speed to gain a good seat, Roy is back that helps, but must mind manners.
Race 12-Meadowlands-Leg 2
2-Bombshell Hanover-Came a 54.4 last half but winner wasn't to be denied. This time starts inside of #7.
5-Captain Nemo-Also chased #7 but fell short, Nemo paces quick last 1/4's and could be sitting on a big try.
7-Capt Midnight-Has been impressive so far but now starts outside of main foes, will use ML chalk but look to beat.
Race 11-Mohawk-Leg 3
5-Black Jack Pat-Filion returns, that should help, draws well, can be forwardly placed, should be the top challenger.
7-Boadicea-3-year-old has been winning easily in fast miles and could be a clean trip away from 5 straight pictures.
Race 13-Meadowlands-Leg 4
1-Chief Justice-Was off 14-days before last start and couldn't catch a determined winner, Burke trainee is a threat.
5-Henderson Seelster-Having trouble closing the deal, but Sears has options here and could work a favorable trip.
8-Armagedon Seelster-Swinging for a price, thinking pace could be hot, if so, Berry should be rolling down the lane.
