Yonkers: Friday 2/5 Analysis


MEET STATS: 39 - 138 / $262.60

BEST BETS: 2 - 11 / $10.70

Best Bet: MAGIC MANNY (8th)

Spot Play: CHEYENNE MIRIAM (10th)

Race 1

(2) MISS MACHQUEEN showed signs of life in her last two trips; in her latest, she had dull cover and had to settle for show honors; worth a shot. (3) OCEANS MOTION will need a better trip than in her last start to contend in here. (1) DEREK DELIGHT moves to the fence and that should help this speedy mare's cause.

Race 2

(1) WARRAWEE ONYX had good cover and rolled over the competition for his second straight score last out; form is sharp and is very capable of nailing down the hat trick. (6) CAMBRIDGE took charge at the mile pole but did not have enough gas in the tank to take home top honors. (2) LILYS SWAN POND qualifiers at the Big M were very sharp to compete with these.

Race 3

(6) M A REFLING was extremely wide and rallied quite well to grab fourth money last out; now she leaves the 8-hole and with a much better trip, she can get the job done. (3) SUMMER SNOW was up on the rim approaching the 3/4 pole, but went flat thru the stretch recently. (8) AFTER ALIMONY comes by way of Canada with a good resume, but her assignment will be from the far outside slot.

Race 4

(8) HOOSIER CHATTER moves to door number 8 tonight and in her last try, she did put in a mild bid; pacing mare is capable of mowing them down given a favorable trip. (1) SENTIMENTAL LADY took the pocket route home for all the glory in her last try. (3) CRUISINWITHMYBABY in her last four starts, this mare is clearly knocking at the door.

Race 5

(1) PLAY THE JUSTICE makes his second trip at the Hilltop and gets a cozy post; was good at his Indiana headquarters so with that said, this gelding must be considered. (2) HASTY PROFFITT flashed good speed most of the way but tired in deep stretch in his last start. (3) KICK A LOT gets serious post relief and that should help his cause.

Race 6

(4) BAZOOKA TERROR did not fire against most of these last week; pacing mare has gotten the job done 2 out of 4 tries and she might be fit and ready to make some serious noise. (5) JUNGLE GENIE N is quite consistent and is seeking her first score of the year. (1) REGIL ELEKTRA 6-year-old miss moves to the rail slot and has good early pace.

Race 7

(2) ELM GROVE INARUSH could not get going against a tough group last time out; now she moves down the ladder and closed strongly to miss the score by a neck against Open foes at Freehold; threat at her best. (6) HAZMATT has wheeled off two straight victories in her only two attempts at Yonkers. (1) JENNAS PATRIOT has picked up checks in her last three outings and should fare well from the fence.

Race 8

(2) MAGIC MANNY is sharp and consistent; led every step of the way but when turning for home, he could not hold off the top two last out; has every right to atone. (1) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER was on the engine from start to finish against lesser recently. (8) FOUR BOYS has good closing kick but will have to do his rallying cry from the 8-hole.

Race 9

(7) BUBBIE BOY 8-year-old gelding has a good record; did take home top honors at the Meadowlands four starts ago; must be considered in all the exotic slots. (2) COACH CAL needs to revert to his January 21st try to make some noise against these. (5) FITZ'S Z TAM was very sharp in his latest with a pocket-rocket victory last time out.

Race 10

(2) CHEYENNE MIRIAM If you throw out her last trip to the post, this gal had done quite well at this level; at her best and a well covered trip can put her right back into the winner's circle. (3) SCOOTIN FOR JOY put in a very good qualifier here and has speed. (6) ART IDEAL took an inside journey home for all the glory last time around.

Race 11

Will try (7) BAS J to put it all together; moves up the scale but is not facing any standouts in here; quite capable. (6) NOBLE WARRAWEE stayed in the pocket most of the way, but had to settle for the placing missing glory by a 1/2 length. (5) SOBORO HANOVER was completely out of it in his Jersey finale but could turn it around on a half-mile oval.

Race 12

(4) JADED DREAM leaves her Meadows headquarters with good numbers. In her latest, she was up on the rim ready to attack, but could not hold off the top three finishers; big threat with a fine-timed drive from Kakaley. (2) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM was sharp in victory via the pocket route recently. (5) SEEKING NIRVANA has been in the exacta in her last four outings.
