Mohawk: Monday 9/22 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: HARPER BLUE CHIP (9th)

Spot Play: MISS SAND CREEK (11th)


Race 1

(7) POCKET TRIP was a winner in this class two starts back, is versatile and Goodwin's barn has been terrific this season. (2) THE ONLY ONE has been much better in his lat two, draws inside and gets Waples. (9) RAMZAM has been consistent all season despite what class he's in. He comes from the Moreau barn and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 2

(3) PIERCE HANOVER comes out of the Metro final, draws inside and should be a top candidate in this easier field. (4) THE SPY was a recent winner for Gillis and will look to double up. (5) ROBERT HILL comes from the Alagna barn, was an open length winner last week and looks like he has more left to offer.

Race 3

(5) MAXIMUSCLE has won seven of 10 this season, gets Jamieson and may offer a fair price. (6) MUSCLE MATTERS hasn't won yet this season, but has finished fifth in seven starts. (9) JITTERBUG has a good record this season and is a good candidate for the triactor. Expect a nice price from an outside post nine start.

Race 4

(3) KONA KID raced in the Champlain Stakes last week and drops in class. He draws inside and shows quick speed for this class. (6) BALLYBUNION was a closing third last week in his second career start. He continues to improve, offers quick final quarter speed and draws much better. (4) ARTFUL WAY may offer a price once again, but he's been very consistent this season and comes from the McIntosh barn.

Race 5

(3) PAPER BACKED LINDY has been a much better horse in the past few starts with MacDonald in the bike. He's hard to overlook even with the jump in class. (6) DOUBLEDOWN GASS was a game second last week, has exceptional gate-speed and has a good record this season. (9) WHEELING N DEALIN drops out of the Preferred class, draws outside and might be overbet.

Race 6

(7) EVEIL DUN CHAMPION has won each of his last three starts and moves onto this circuit. He might offer a price and gets Jamieson in the bike. (8) ARAMBLIN HANOVER was a game second last week in this class. (4) DECISIVE DESTINY draws inside and likely will offer a low price. He's been a beaten favourite in each of his last two, but a good option for the triactor.

Race 7

(1) NORTHERN VICTORY drops out of the Preferred class and gets a much better post. He's versatile and has a winning record this season. (5) DANCEHALL MISTRESS finished second last week in the Preferred and can't be overlooked. (3) WINDSONG GEANT tends to race inconsistently, but finished a game third last week at the Preferred while making a break at the start. If he's on his game, he's a contender.

Race 8

(4) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE gets class relief tonight along with major post relief. He'll likely be the heavy favourite when the gates unfold. (3) WORLD AWAY has been better in his last three, offers all kinds of back class and remains at this level. (1) CURATOR draws inside, has five wins this season and qualified sharply in his latest.

Race 9

(6) HARPER BLUE CHIP looks like the best OSS trotter this season. He's the horse to beat. (7) P L HERCULES has been much better as of late, is versatile and gets Waples in the bike. (9) VERDI comes from the Bax barn and has a good record this season despite no wins. He likely will offer a price form a post nine start.

Race 10

(9) KINETIC KING exploded last week en route to a second place effort. He just missed for the win and remains at this same level. (2) MMS LUCKY BOY draws inside for a change and was a winner last week at this level. (5) CHARLIE IS A JOKER is a recent addition to the Baillargeon barn and the veteran has been much better as of late. He draws well and likely will offer a short price.

Race 11

(3) MISS SAND CREEK has been much better in her last few starts, draws well and has some back class to offer. (7) PUTMEINTOGO made a miscue last start for new trainer Boyd and will look to rebound. (1) PALM PATROL draws inside, comes from the Auciello barn and may offer a fair price.
