Mohawk: Tuesday 9/23 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BUCKAROO (6th)

Spot Play: STAR RUFFNREADY (7th)


Race 1

(4) OAKLEA WYATT has won each of his last three starts, draws well and may offer a fair price in his debut on this circuit. (1) DELCREST MASSY gets the rail, comes from the Puddy barn and gets Jamieson in the bike. He qualified well and may offer a low price. (6) CONCEPT has hit the board in two of his last three starts. He moves onto this circuit, but just missed last week for trainer Burgess.

Race 2

(8) USEFUL HANOVER comes from the Auciello barn and shows the speed needed to win this dash. He has a formless record this season, but shows quick final quarter speed and may offer a nice return. (4) BETTORS DESTINY comes from the Johnson barn, draws well and gets MacDonald. (7) CHRISTAS WINGS enters this class for the first time and should offer a price.

Race 3

(5) FLOAT ON BY comes out of the Shes A Great Lady and faces a much easier bunch of fillies. (1) BETTORHAVEANOTHER draws the rail and has won three of four career starts. She comes from the Brethour barn and offers a lot of versatility. (6) AINTSHEASWEETIE was a winner two back and comes from the Gillis barn. She closed strongly last week and has some upside.

Race 4

(2) YOU CANBEANANGEL will make her second career start and raced very strongly last week in her career debut. She looks well prepared for this contest. (5) ASADA HANOVER closed well last week at 11-1. She has the speed, draws well and comes from the O'Sullivan barn. (9) ENNISTYMON kicked home in :27 last week and gets Waples back in the bike. She has the speed and offers a lot of versatility.

Race 5

(3) BODY TALK went gate-to-wire last week in a new career best and looks like the horse to beat once again. (4) FASHION GODDESS is a recent addition into the Baillargeon barn and qualified sharply for the new connections. (7) INNER PEACE is fresh off a win and moves onto this circuit. He enjoys using his gate-speed and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 6

(3) BUCKAROO was spectacular two back in this class. He draws well again this week and has a solid record this season. (5) NORMSTRIKESFAME has excellent gate-speed and finally draws inside this week. He has a solid record this season and shows quick speed. (10) WATERSIDE KIPPER will need to overcome post 10, but the gelding was a game second last week for O'Sullivan, by a head in this class.

Race 7

(9) STAR RUFFNREADY may offer a nice price as this back class trotter returns following a layoff. (3) SMARTY PANTS continues to be overbet in past weeks and I'll pick her for second. She has a winless form over the past few seasons despite what class she's in. (6) ORDER BY COMMANDER has hit the board in two of his last three starts, draws well and comes from Puddy's barn.

Race 8

(7) ARTHUR drops in class after tasting defeat last week at a higher level by only a length. He may offer a short price, but continues to show quick speed and is due to step up. (8) WINDFALL BLUE CHIP put in a sub-par effort last week considering he was the favourite and will look to rebound. (2) GRANDKIDS ATTACK has hit the board in each of his last three starts.

Race 9

(9) LONG ISLAND TEA made a miscue last week in the debut for trainer Jones and will look to rebound. She'll likely be the favourite again and has the speed and connections in her favour. (2) SIX BAX might offer a nice price from an inside post. He's gaining confidence after a second place effort in his latest. (4) COE LEADER comes from the Zeron barn, draws inside and has been a threat in this class as of late.

Race 10

(6) BEST RISQUE has been the picture of consistency in this class as of late, draws in the middle of the gate and offers a lot of versatility. (10) ALL CHOCOLATE has finished second in three of her last four starts and has a terrific record all season. (2) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT has all kinds of back class to offer and should offer a nice price. She comes from the Auciello barn and will need to be better.

Race 11

(8) RANSOM DEMAND drops in class, has a terrific late kick and likely will be the favourite when the gates unfold. (6) KEY TOPIC has won two straight coming into tonight's contest, draws in the middle of the gate and has a license to drop more time. (2) COURAGEOUS C has two wins from four starts this season and is capable of going a big mile. He may offer a fair price in here.

Race 12

(9) BROOKDALE BUSTER has a solid record this season, comes from the Moore barn and gets the circuit's leading driver. (8) WELL DID was a winner two back, comes from the Moreau barn and closed very well last week. (5) WATERSIDE LIGHT comes from the Barrieau barn, draws inside and was timed in 1:51 4/5 last start. He's a good price option.
