by Xpressbet

August 25, 2018

Mohawk Park has a loaded 13 race card on tap for this evening including two eliminations for next week's Maple Leaf Trot. The other headliners will be two-year-old fillies and pacers doing battle in divisions of the Eternal Camnation and Nassagaweya. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 2-Eternal Camnation-Division 1-Purse $84,116 
6-Deb-Rates and edge off last win on 8/20 from 10 hole. 6-1 in the ML, could be catching #1 and #5 at right time. 
1-Queen Of The Pride-Winner of 4 of 5 now tries big oval and should be respected. 
5-Key West-Program chalk looks the part and will be tough to beat if keeps catching nice trips. 

Race 3-Maple Leaf Trot Elimination-Purse $40,000 
7-JL Cruze-Has drawn poorly recently but from here has the gate speed to get on the engine and not look back. 
1-Marion Marauder-Figures to be tough but has been off since 8/4, may save best work for the Final. 
2-Emoticon Hanover-Live play who likes the track and can add some pop to the gimmicks. 

Race 4-Eternal Camnation-Division 2-Purse $83,115 
2-Bestseller Hanover-Versatile and talented filly has won throughout North America, best will be tough to beat. 
1-Odds On St Lucie-Drew off by 8 on 8/14 but now will face tougher. 
5-Quebec Blue Chip-3 straight wins at Grvr and will be in the hunt on the big track but like #2-#1 on top of ticket. 

Race 5-Maple Trot Elimination-Purse $40,000 
1-Will Take Charge-Last at Tgdn was very sharp, should be dialed on high tonight from the rail with Tetrick. 
5-Hannelore Hanover-Didn't like the way the champ finished in last, but she deserves the benefit of the doubt. 
3-Warrawee Roo-Local favorite has had success on home track and can spice up gimmicks. 

Race 8-Eternal Camnation-Division 3-Purse $84,116 
4-Tall Drink Hanover-Winner of 2 straight and form looks to be a cut above the rest. 
2-Kylie Seelster-Consistent and at 6-1 in the ML is a play with Henry taking over for McNair. 
3-Blossom Onthebeach-Has been in the money in all 4 starts and should be in the mix again.
