Mohawk: Friday 7/18 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: A FILLY AFFAIR (6th)

Spot Play: JOKES JET (2nd)


Race 1

(7) QUADROPHENIA will look to rebound following last week's disappointing effort. She has the speed, comes from a top barn and is a three-time winner this season. (3) DIAMONDS FOR LIFE is a top play if she can mind her manners. (4) FASHION TAGMAN won last week in this class, draws inside and has excellent gate-speed.

Race 2

(7) JOKES JET comes from the McNair barn and faces easier competition after dropping out of the Canadian Breeders. (2) MEA LILLEY MARK draws inside and has been knocking on the door as of late. (8) SAM has a patented late kick and shouldn't get overlooked for the triactor. Quick speed on the front will only increase her chances.

Race 3

(2) PROTEGE SEELSTER draws inside, comes from the Johnson barn and won last week in this class. (3) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE has hit the board in each of her last four starts. (7) DESIGNER GENES comes from the Gallucci barn, has hit the board in each of her last two and is always a threat at this level.

Race 4

(5) SEASIDE RORY gets major class relief, comes from the Gillis barn and showed a much improved effort last week. (10) HAT TRICK HONEY is capable of overcoming post 10 and has been racing at her best in recent weeks. (6) DREAMFAIR ECLIPSE was pacing hard last week at the wire and has a good overall record this season.

Race 5

(2) STRONG HOPE draws inside and has a hard-closing fourth last week in this class. He might offer a price in this wide-open contest. (3) MIDFIELD MAGIC has been racing much better as of late, draws well and is capable of the class hike. (4) SANTO DOMINGO has some back class to offer and gets Waples aboard.

Race 6

(6) A FILLY AFFAIR has been a perfect two-for-two since adding lasix. (3) POLK DOT HANOVER draws inside and drops out of the Town Pro Series. (7) RIVETING is fresh off a win, has gate-speed and might offer a fair price.

Race 7

(4) REQUEST FOR PAROLE will add lasix to her program for trainer Johnson. She has the speed and draws inside. (7) ST LADS PEEPER comes from the Moreau barn and has been a main threat at this level for many weeks. (8) HOPE FOR PADDY has flying at the end of last week’s mile with a :27 final quarter. She's been much better in her last two and comes from the Montini barn.

Race 8

(7) BET YA has been a consistent performer as of late and bodes as a top threat in this field. (1) MURRAYFIELD draws inside and is fresh off a win for trainer Wallace. (10) DANA DEAREST has the speed and will need to overcome post 10.

Race 9

(8) A REAL COMMITMENT has been racing terrific this season, comes from the Johnson barn and has a terrific on-the-board record. (4) RUBIS PRESCOTT entered the Nixon barn last start and scored in a career best time. (10) SOLID QUEEN shipped onto this circuit last week and was a game second. She has quick gate-speed and is a top threat once again.

Race 10

(5) VOELZ HANOVER won last week in this event, has over $1.5 million of back class and is capable of repeating. (3) D GS PESQUERO has a terrific on-the-board record this season and comes from the Moreau camp. (4) REBEKA BAYAMA will look for a better effort. She has the speed and back class in her favour.

Race 11

(1) BAROCKEY draws inside, has some back class and comes from the Auciello barn. (8) MARINADE HANOVER disappointed as the favourite last week in this class and will look to rebound. (4) JEREMEYS JEWEL hit the board last week in this class, draws well and should provide a high price.
