My focus tonight will be on the Early 0.20 Pick 4 at Woodbine Mohawk Park which starts in Race 4. The competitive sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Fly Beyond (5-1)-There are reasons to not include, primarily the 0-21 in 2019 but has been trying hard. So will use after strong efforts from post 8. Could be ready for a picture if can land a nice seat and the trip works out.
4-Derf Hanover (2-1)-Form has been flat against better but should like the company tonight. Best to respect but is only 2-33 at Wbsb and will probably be bet hard. Using but will be looking for better value.
8-Wild And Crazy Guy (8-1)-Drops to the level of last win and post helps the price. Likes the track and Filion could be aggressive in this spot.
4-Legal Bettor (5-1)-Has had trouble finishing off miles but comes right back in 7-days. Could be sitting on a big try and chances go up if the track is fast.
5-Stolen Art (10-1)-Slow starts are often a problem but is another who comes right back. Might be overlooked at the windows and thinking an improved effort is in the cards.
9 Julerica (5/2)-Has been in fine form for some time. McClure sticks and if the trip doesn't take a toll it could be picture time again. 11-time winner in '19 looks like a major player.
3-Casimir Overdrive (2-1)-Scooted home in first start for Moreau and it's probably best to not overlook for an encore.
5-Darcee N (9/2)-Henry takes a seat and now draws well at this level. Looking for a big try at a square price.
7-Mossies Art (8-1)-Dropped to this level and was saddled with the 10-hole. This is another price shot who can win with a trip, and on an off-track chances may go up.
9-Grits N Gravy (5-1)-Has been trying hard from bad posts and will need to do the same here. This is an interesting group and will respect Team Cullen's chances.
3-Kadabra Queen (12-1)-Can roll late and now makes 3rd start since returning to Wbsb. Big chance to snag top honors at a nice price if gets off the gate and lands a good seat.
5-Perfetto (7/2)-Going to overlook last after being far back early on. Henriksen could work the right trip from this post and fire off cover.
8-Hemi Seelster (5-1)-Has been facing better. Blasted out from the 9-hole and got the top in last but faded. Should be tighter now because was off 3-weeks before last start. Best to respect connections and should offer a fair price.
Race 4) 3,4,8
Race 5) 4,5,9
Race 6) 3,5,7,9
Race 7) 3,5,8
Total Ticket Cost) $21.60 for $0.20
