Tonight, there are 10-races set to roll at Woodbine Mohawk Park. The very popular 0.20 Pick 5 begins at the top of the card. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Stolen Art-Form has been so-so but drops in for a tag, should relish the company, can take an overdue picture.
7-Racemup-Racing well, should be leaving again and versus this field may have a better chance to snag a win.
4-Bright Eyes M-3-year-old made it look easy in last 2 with Gold fillies, now tries mixed company but will respect.
5-Haveoneforme-This is another filly who is having a big year versus tough foes, will consider versus the boys.
6-All Wrapped Up-Big win at odds-on in Gold level using hopples in last, looks like a player and will tag along.
3-Majestic Brayden-Was used hard off the gate from 9-hole, makes 4th start off the bench, looking for a big try.
4-Stormont Charlotte-1st start at Wbsb since 4/29, does best work here and should like the company.
7-Hockey Hanover-Form has been dull but this is a good drop in class, no excuses allowed for 8/5 ML chalk.
2-Play The Ponies-Gets needed class relief for 2nd consecutive start and draws inside, could be wake-up time.
3-Mayhem Hanover-1.53 miles were not good enough to win in the Gold division, best to respect chances here.
8-Night Watchman-Comes off a sick scratch, did well in 1st start, thinking Jamieson could rally late if pace is hot.
3-Examiner Hanover-Won from 9-hole in sharp fashion, this is tougher but will use just in case big chalk (#6) slips.
6-Tall Dark Stranger-$330,000 yearling rolled in 1.51.3 in debut, Gingras is in town again, should be tough to beat.
Race 1) 2,7
Race 2) 4,5,6

Race 4) 2,3,8
Race 5) 3,6
Total Ticket Cost) $21.60 for $0.20
