Race 1

(1) MOBILE draws the rail and is knocking at the door. Can rate and score over this group. (4) TOTALLY EMPRESSIVE can rebound from his last effort. (5) BORDEAUX was second best in his recent trip.

Race 2

(5) WINBAK DREAM She has been facing open foes of late. Now this gal returns to Yonkers and could be ready for action at her best. (1) KLM EXPRESS raced evenly in his last try. (2) ARMBRO CASINO grinded out a victory in his last start.
