Yonkers: Friday 7/17 Analysis


MEET STATS: 113 - 579 / $805.70  BEST BETS: 12 - 50 / $51.50

Best Bet: MARCH AWARENESS (11th)

Spot Play: DUKES UP (3rd)


Race 1

This looks to be a matchup between the top three from last week. (1) TOO DARN HOT sat a three-hole the whole trip and measured these in the stretch drive to get the job done last out. Gelding now moves to the fence; major threat again. (2) MISTER ACCUMULATOR showed his early zip, but could not hold off the top pick; dangerous. (4) MISTER BIG LOAD raced well in the pocket last time around; can't be overlooked.

Race 2

(6) WINEMASTER HANOVER enjoyed the rail slot, stayed in the 3-hole last out and folded in deep stretch. Trotter is poised to make amends because he is much better based on his 6/19 & 6/11tries. (3) ROYAL MALINDA put in an even try last time out and could have a say in this event. (1) BASTILLE This might be a better slot for this trotting gelding to get involved; watch out.

Race 3

(3) DUKES UP Last out he was out of it in the early stages, but moved outside on the backside and on the move down the stretch but time had run out, so he had to settle for the place spot; ready for action tonight. (4) REPORT FOR DUTY N Old pro was quite sharp in his latest; main danger. (1) HOT SHOT LAWYER needs a huge turnaround to contend but he does have the fence where he got the job done two trips ago; maybe.

Race 4

(5) DELCO ROCKNROLL came late on the scene to nail down the show spot last time out. Can boss these with a favorable trip. (1) STONE TREE moved outside on the backside, ducked in and got up for win honors in his most recent outing; threat. (4) MEETBEHINDTHEBARN has tactical speed and could have a say in the outcome.

Race 5

(4) MC DYNAMITE Gelding has every right to move forward based on his latest trip. (6) RAMPAGE JACKSON is on a roll scoring his second straight victory. (3) SANTANNA ONE gets some class relief; watch out.

Race 6

(7) CINAMONY blasted down the lane to get the job done in her last try. Pacing miss seems to be fit and ready to make it four straight. (8) KRISPY APPLE had late kick and just got up for win honors last time around. (3) ALHAMBRA has some good zip and could make some noise in the stretch drive; maybe.

Race 7

(2) ROCKAROUND SUE gets post relief. This might help her chances as she is very capable of making a quick turnaround; the pick. (3) MAJOR DANCER seems to fall to pieces in deep stretch. Two seconds in a row still puts this gal right in the mix. (1) KEYSTONE WANDA should do much better from the fence; beware.

Race 8

(2) FOR THE LADIES N Clearly this pacing mare is knocking at the door. She is good enough to rate and score; threat. (1) CHERRY BLISS just got up to nail down the victory in her latest. Repeat is not out of the question. (7) MONKEY ON MY WHEEL fits well in here and based on her last four tries, she is not out of this by far.

Race 9

(5) LIVE ON was caught at the wire last out. Gelding gets another chance to bring home all the bacon. Trainer Fanning calls on Brennan; ready for action. (2) SIGN TO INVERELL A With a favorable trip, he could contend with these. (3) FRAMED ART Delaware shipper has some speed and could have a say.

Race 10

(6) VIRGIN MARY is on the dropdown and she can fire her best against this group; ready to get it done. (7) SO NICE closed well against lesser company for the show spot last out; factor. (1) P L HULA Easy score at Pocono last time around and she retains the rail slot; don't overlook despite moving up the scale.

Race 11

(1) MARCH AWARENESS Trotting gelding is knocking at the door. Ready to break down the door down the road with Brennan at the controls. (2) PICTURE THIS returns from Ohio and fits well in here based on his latest at Northfield. (6) TOBER has showed good early trot at Pocono; beware.

Race 12

(3) BET THE MOON Better effort in his previous outing. Pacer is poised to boss these at his best. (1) LETTUCEROCKU A gets post relief and that should help his cause. (2) KANARIS was second best in his most recent trip to the post; don't overlook.
