Mohawk: Friday 7/4 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MAJOR DANCER (9th)

Spot Play: AGGRESSIVE  (1st)


Race 1

(8) AGGRESSIVE is a youngster that I'm hoping for a price on to kick off the card. He faces an easier class, has gate-speed and is due for a win. (6) KEEP THE CASH comes from the McIntosh barn, has won three of six this season and is capable of improving. (3) WIZARD OF OSNEY made a break in her latest, but was a winner two back. She draws well, is versatile and Milner's barn has been good this season.

Race 2

(4) SOME POWER qualified sharply in 1:54 4/5, comes from the Coleman barn and is ready for his first career start. (7) AMORA BEACH won last week at first asking and will look to repeat. (2) ON THE ROCKS draws inside and was an open length winner in his speedy qualifier.

Race 3

(1) POCKET TRIP gets much needed post relief and won at this level two back. (7) OLE JACK MAGIC has been very consistent all season and may offer a fair price. (8) MAJESTIC GINGER has been driven well as of late by Steacy and has posted back-to-back wins.

Race 4

(7) IGNITE THE NITE disappointed last week as the favourite and is capable of rebounding at the same class. (2) GOLDIES MACH has won two straight and been terrific since entering the Menary barn. (5) MURRAYFIELD is very capable in here. She draws well and put forth a good effort in her latest. She's a price horse.

Race 5

(5) DOUBLEDOWN GASS has finished second in each of his three starts this season and is due. (8) BODY BALANCE comes from the Maxwell barn and went a big trip in his latest. (4) DEMENTED has the speed, draws better this week and was an open length winner in her latest.

Race 6

(3) BET YA will aim for her fourth straight win of the season. She draws inside and will get the bulk of attention. (4) BRESCIA SEELSTER exploded in deep stretch last week en route to victory. She's a likable candidate in here as well. (7) SECTIONLINE AQUA drops out of the Gold Series after finishing third and faces a much easier field.

Race 7

(3) BEST RISQUE draws inside and disappointed as the favourite last week off the claim. I'll try him again this week. (4) ERIKSTAR MINDALE lit up the tote board last week in this class at 22-1. She provided a late kick and draws better this week. (6) PLAY AT WYNN closed very well last week in this class and comes from the Gallucci barn.

Race 8

(1) MARINADE HANOVER moves onto this circuit, gets the rail and shows speedy miles over The Meadowlands to give her top billing in here. (2) HAT TRICK HONEY drops in class, draws inside and is due for a big effort. (4) TRAMA UNIT also drops in class and gets post relief. She'll likely offer a price and enjoys racing from behind.

Race 9

(3) MAJOR DANCER is the filly to beat in this final despite tasting defeat in last week's second round. (8) BROOKDALE SHADOW provided the mini upset last week for Moore and Waples. She's a top threat in here and likely will be put into play in the early stages. (7) POLK DOT HANOVER has won two of her last three, comes from the Menary barn and has a good record this season.

Race 10

(3) MY SECRET BELLE has won two straight, draws inside and has been very consistent this season. (1) SOMETHININCREDIBLE gets the rail and put in a sub-par effort last week. I'll try her again and look for a better performance. (5) A REAL COMMITMENT has been the picture of consistency this season, jumps in class and comes from the Johnson barn.

Race 11

(2) HOPE FOR PADDY missed last week as the favourite, draws inside and is a top threat once again. (1) TAIL R SWIFT gets the rail, comes from Moreau's barn and has hit the board in each of her last six starts. (3) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT was a winner last week in the debut of Auciello and is capable of the class jump.
