Monday, January 20: Mohawk Park Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

January 20, 2020

Tonight's Early 0.20 Pick 4 at Woodbine Mohawk Park will be my focus. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will begin in Race 4.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 4

1-Military Secret (5/2)-This looks like a 2-horse race and this guy is razor sharp. With this post draw it might be easier to make it 3 in a row than it was to win the last 2.
3-Lyons Pegasus (9/2)-This is a nice 4-year old and with the right trip could make it interesting. But loses Jamieson and Hudon needs to provide a smooth journey, maybe in the 2-hole right behind #1.

Race 5

2-Barn One (8-1)-Makes 2nd start for Moreau and will toss the first time effort when off for >2 weeks. This looks like a bounce back opportunity to be in the mix.
4-Young Drunk Punk (7/2)-Comes out of a tough race and had a rough trip. This is a better spot to stay in range, roll late and pick off foes to the wire.
5-Brookletsjustified (5-1)-Makes 3rd start for Fellows who was aggressive in claiming back. Should be a square price and McNair could put in play early and trip out.
8-Hes A Sensation (6-1)-10-year-old takes a big a drop and will use mainly for that reason plus post makes the price better. Looks like a player if dialed on high and healthy, will lean that way and use.

Race 6

7-Kameran Hanover (8-1)-Gets a positive driver change and is coming off a sharp effort from the 9-hole. Will need best to take a picture at this class but this could be the time.
8-Kadabra Queen (4-1)-Has been trying hard and will excuse the break in last. Can beat this crew with a clean trip and a decent early seat.
10-Major Muscle (5-1)-Even try in last after having excuses in previous 2 starts. Usually leaves me wanting more but many of these have a similar profile. McClure could put in play even from post-10.

Race 7

3-Easy Flyer (5/2)-Makes 1st start for Moreau and usually competes well at this class. Won't offer any value but tough to leave off the ticket.
6-No Time At All (6-1)-Was used a couple of times in last when starting from the rail. This post may work better for slow starter. Here's a chance for a price and could surprise if able to come up with a top effort.
8-Arukidinme Cabbie (7/2)-1 for last 20 and is the 2nd ML chalk, so that says something about this group. It's a scattered bunch and this post is a concern. But will use and hope the pace is honest and cover flow is good.
