Mohawk: Monday 6/30 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SHES DANGEROUS (4th)

Spot Play: NOBLE FLIRT (2nd)


Race 1

(10) LUCK O THE IRISH will have no easy task overcoming post 10 in his first career start. Trainer Durand qualified this youngster both times and managed to drop four full seconds off his time. (2) I FEEL GOOD comes from the Wayne Henry barn, which is excellent with young trotters. (4) A LITTLE MORE LOVE comes from Hall of Famer McIntosh's barn and this colt by Kadabra won his qualifying effort on June 13.

Race 2

(5) NOBLE FLIRT has been knocking on the door in this maiden class for the past few weeks and is due for her first career win. (2) RUB THE GENIE draws post two and comes out of the Beaver barn, which is excellent with trotters. (4) FASHION GODDESS likely will offer a price in here and has some upside to her.

Race 3

(3) CODE ONE HANOVER was a $75K yearling purchase by trainer and owner Jack Darling. This filly remains heavily-staked this season and appears to be the real deal so far with her impressive qualifying effort. (4) LADY JEN is hard not to consider off her 1:56.4 qualifying win by over eight lengths. (7) SHEEZTOUGHENOUGH has been praised upon all winter by her trainer and co-owner David Menary.

Race 4

(7) SHES DANGEROUS hasn't hit the board in four starts this season, but moves onto this circuit and comes out of the Alagna barn. (3) NARCIAN JEWEL will make her third career start and closed very well in her latest in her division of the Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots for driver Mayotte and trainer Macri. (10) DANIKA PATRIX will have to overcome post 10, but is very capable as she demonstrated quick gate-speed on June 2.

Race 5

(2) CARRACCI HANOVER banked over $96K last season as a rookie while competing in the Grand Circuit against the best rookie female pacers in the sport. (9) WEATHER HANOVER comes out of the Austin barn, which has been terrific this season from limited starts. (8) NAKED CITY moved into the Robinson barn last start, which decreased his price and resulted in a second-place finish.

Race 6

(6) SHADIOS put in a sub-par effort in his latest in his division of the Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots. This is a wide-open field, but I landed on him based on his starts prior to last week. (7) MEETMEINTHEALLY stunned the public two back with his 1:54 winning effort at 103-1 for trainer Jim Ritchie. (5) RURAL ART comes out of the Mayotte barn and draws better than his past two starts.

Race 7

(7) CLASSIC MARTINE likely will be the public's second-choice when the gates unfold, but I'm going to try her in top spot. She provided the mini upset in the Armbro Flight final on June 14 on this surface and set a world record just four starts back. (5) MAVEN has shipped home from racing in the Elitlopp in Solvalla, Sweden and since then has posted a winning qualifying effort at The Meadowlands. Perhaps the journey overseas and ship to Canada will have an effect on her performance therefore, I'm going to play against her in her fourth start of the season. (8) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY shouldn't get overlooked in here for the triactor.

Race 8

(1) SHARK LEAP HANOVER begins from a good post in this week's contest and will offer a low price once again. (8) CROUCH END has posted back-to-back wins at Georgian Downs by open lengths. (3) ABREATHOFRESHART might offer a price once again at this maiden level, but is worth a look if you're playing the triactor.

Race 9

(9) MELMERBY BEACH was the heavy favourite in his latest in the opening round of this series and disappointed the public with a fourth-place finish. (7) COMPANY MAN hasn't been worse than second in seven starts this season and poses as a top threat again this week. (1) CAPOZZO is winless from five starts this season, but has hit the board in four.

Race 10

(3) COBBLE BEACH made an uncharacteristic break in stride last week at a higher level and recovered very well. Despite not getting a cheque, he paced home in :27 2/5 to be individually timed in 1:51 3/5. (1) BUDDHA BLUE CHIP has been a top threat at this level for many weeks and raced very well in his latest to finish third. (6) TAURANGA comes out of the Tony O'Sullivan barn and has been knocking on the door in each of his last three starts in this class.

Race 11

(6) SUMMONS has been the talk of this condition over the past few weeks with a trip of wins and one second-place finish. (1) BUTTON FLY has been a main threat at this class for many weeks and draws a post one start. (8) THINKBEFOREUSPEAK entered the Dowling barn following a claim on June 7. Since then he's moved onto this circuit and fared out well in his lone start with a third-place finish.
