Al Cimaglia: Mohawk Mandatory Payout-Jackpot Hi-5 Analysis | Saturday, June 18, 2022

Besides the star-studded card at Woodbine Mohawk Park tonight there is a mandatory Jackpot Hi-5 Payout in Race 13. The carryover is a hefty $548,692.73 which should attract a great deal of betting interest. My strategy will be to use 2 horses underneath who are not chalks and hope for a solid price to land at the top of the ticket.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 13-Mandatory Jackpot Hi-5 Payout

1-Rockin N Talkin (9/2)-This will be one of my keys to use underneath. Looking for Filion to have in the mix in a rare start from the inside. Counting on a big try but not a winning effort.

3-Pointomygranson (8-1)-It would be a surprise if this veteran won but not a complete shock. Likes the track and JMac could keep in contention. More likely to get sucked around and hit toward the bottom of the Hi-5.

4-Chapagne Phil (15-1)-Not saying Phil is going to be posing but he is like a few who can hang around and cash a check. The question will be if Moore can provide a decent steer to stay in contention. But the price will be right to use on the ticket.

5-Century Fury (7/2)-Auciello trainee is 0-21 this year and has trouble finishing off miles but still rates as the 2nd morning line chalk. My guess is the price will be better than 7/2 and can't eliminate from the ticket.

6-No Plan Intended (3-1)-Trying for its 4th straight picture and has won on the engine and coming off cover when the fractions were hot. Looks like a player once again.

7-Yacht Seelster (6-1)-This will be my other key underneath, like #1. Wilder should find a live cover flow and work a stalking trip to hit the board.

9-Lets Get Pickled (5-1)-Comes off a nice effort at Grand River, drops and fits well with this crew. Harris needs to work a sharp steer but has been a live play here versus similar.

10-Outlawgrabbingears (10-1)-Has the gate speed to get a close-up seat and Henry could pull off an upset at a nice price. Has won 5 of 16 starts at Mohawk. Can bring one big move and needs to use it at the right time.

Tossing the 2-8-11-12.
