The Monday night card at Woodbine Mohawk Park will have 11 races set to roll. The 0.20 Early Pick 4 begins in Race 4 and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
5-Never Mind N (5/2)-Won last start with a 56.3 last half and was off over a month. It was a perfect trip, but it was also the 2nd start on Lasix so could be even better tonight. Best to respect lightly raced 7-year-old.
6-Angry Eyes (3-1)-Father Patrick mare won 2 in a row and then took the long way around from the 7-hole. Filion takes a seat and he should work a nice trip from here and could be fastest of all down the lane.
3-Rock This Way (3-1)-Hasn't taken a picture since 6/20 and now drops to a soft spot. Slow starter should be able to get into the mix at this level but is only 2-20 this year.
8-The Regulator (10-1)-Gingras takes a seat and he will probably have the pedal pushed down. Should be able to get the top or the pocket behind #1 and shake loose late.
9-Dreamfair BJ (8-1)-Broke slowly from the 7 hole when dropped to this level in last. Went the last half in 53.3 to finish 4th and can be a player with a better trip.
1-Warrawee Windsor (3-1)-McClure takes the lines and this 2-year-old may have found a field to break his maiden. Started very slowly in last and if comes off the gate in good shape and handles the 1 post it could be picture time.
4-Eighteen Wheelin (5-1)-Trotted through the wire in last and has been handled conservatively so far. Filion is back in the bike and he knows well. Versus this crew it might be time to take the wrapper off and try a more aggressive steer.
4-Always Flashing A (3-1)-Was used early into a quick opening quarter and advanced in the stretch in a 151.4 mile. Can be a player if upswing continues.
5-Icy Blue Scooter (5-1)-Drops and regular driver is back between the pipes. There should be an honest pace and JMac can come rolling off cover.
8-Military Secret (6-1)-Started in the 2nd tier and was claimed in last. Fits with these and will look for a big try in 1st start for Team Cullen.
Race 4) 5,6
