The feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park rolls in Race 8, a condition trot with a $25,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 begins in Race 4. It is a very competitive sequence with a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
4-R First Class-Caught a great trip to win last, previous start was sharp, in form so will string along here.
5-Derf Hanover-Only 1-22 at Wbsb, but will look past in an open race as last was a better effort and draws well.
6-Free Willy Hanover-ML chalk is a check getter and now drops to good level to snag an overdue win.
2-Julerica-Steps up but so do others, drew off in a fast mile for 2nd straight, loses Roy but Filion can put in play.
3-Cheapskate Hanover-Not crazy about the stale date but last was very sharp and if dialed on high can win again.
5-Devils Peak-Will swing for a price in 2nd start for new barn, in the hunt with a top effort.
9-Rockin Wizard-Can leave quickly, won last mostly because of a great start, could follow the same script tonight.
3-Undercover Strike-Has been trying hard and comes off a nice win, could be an encore if Henley finds live cover.
5-Twofourroadie-Makes 7th start of '19, needs a trip but draws well and fits in a competitive race at a square price.
7-Vesuvio Bi-Racing well and Henry can fire out to get a good seat, or the top and not look back.
1-Shezarealdeal-This is a spot to shine, should be bet and looks like a major player.
4-Thrillonthebeach-Couldn't hang on so just missed at this class in the slop, will respect that effort and use here.
8-Sudden Passing-McNair takes a spin, can roll late and fits with this bunch, figures to be in mix unless pace is dull.
Race 4) 4,5,6
Race 5) 2,3,5,9
Race 6) 3,5,7
Race 7) 1,4,8
Total Ticket Cost) $21.60 for $0.20
