Mohawk: Horses to watch from Apr. 28 - May 2


Thursday, April 28

JAGERSRO (NW1) got a bad shuffle and closed well. Do not ignore.

HE IS RISEN (CLMHCP12/18000) left to the top, yielded, retook, set a long pressed pace and tired. A better trip will get him close.

P L JERICO (NW2) took the top, yielded, pounced and took the lead when the leader weakened, got challenged by the odds-on favorite and proved second best.

MACKTWOWILLDEW (CLMHCP8/10000) got badly shuffled and jammed up to lose any chance.

MAJOR HILL (NW1) pulled early, brushed to command and won for fun. Prohibitive favorite should take a couple more.

Friday, April 29

ADAYMER SEELSTER (CLMHCP8/10000FM) closed strong but had too far to come.

ROCK THE DREAM (CLM12000) made a bid brushing move to the lead, got away but tired and the odds-on favorite ran him down.

WAR FILLY (NW3FM) yielded early, got shuffled badly, cleared between horses early stretch and finished well but had lost her chance.

SHES DEADLY (CLM10000FM) went down the road holding off the late bid of the favorite.

Saturday, April 30

ROCKIN IN HEAVEN (NW15500) got stuck in the pocket looking for room through the stretch in tight bunch to the wire.

HOUSE OF TERROR (NW15500) was buried on the rail trying to come inside or outside and was more than willing.

BILBO HANOVER (NW15500) seemed eager to pace but lacked space. Keep an eye on this one in next.

WAASMULA (PRFHCPFM) was well bet but never had a chance from post 10 in quick pace but finished fastest of all. Should be tough with a better trip.

Monday, May 2

ARCHANGEL THREE (NW1) tucked early, pulled to the half, challenged to the third panel, took over past the marker and was an impressive winner.

BEE IN CHARGE (NW1) yielded, retook, rated the middle half, powered home from there and was much the best. 

BLISSFULL YEARS (NW3000) took a short lived lead, yielded, got shuffled, brushed to the top, battled the last turn and proved strong winner at even money.

HILLSONATOR (NW5) set the pace under harsh pressure and battled stubbornly but could not last. Beaten favorite should get it right in next.

OAKLEA WYATT (NW5) left and was parked, pressed the pace hard and was stubborn to mid lane before the trip took its toll.
