Yonkers: Monday 10/13 Analysis


MEET STATS: 25 - 72 / $129.40   BEST BETS: 4 - 6 / $15.30

Best Bet: SHE’S HEAVENLY (3rd)



Race 1

(7) MOREMUNYBUSINESS looks clearly best on paper against a blank field. The outside post doesn’t thrill me, but she should be able to get the job done. (2) SILOUETTE has shown some decent miles and does possess early speed. (4) DREAM BALL has a definite shot if Bartlett can work out a clean trip.

Race 2

(1) LAZURUS should be able to take charge in this spot without having to deal with much stress. This field lacks a ton of early speed. (4) CATALYST is a capable trotter when given the right trip. (6) TOURIFIC only needs a fast pace or a more aggressive drive to have a shot at a big price.

Race 3

(4) SHE’S HEAVENLY has only been in this cheap once in her career and she won by open lengths. She faced a world record holder in her last start. (1) VILLAGE JESSICA will enjoy starting from post one this time around. (2) ANEGADA is off a win at this level; clear player.

Race 4

(4) VENGANCE should make the top in a jiffy. The last time he raced for this claiming tag, the result was a win. (1) BOOTS N BOURBON drops down to his best condition. He finished a neck short in his last start against his peers. (2) ROCKIN RAMBARAN stays in the same company after a win.

Race 5

(2) IVANA HANOVER suspiciously drops below the level of the claim three starts back. He should be able to tackle this bunch. (3) PHOTO RULES gets post and class relief. (1) WINWOOD SCOUT gets the best post and should push away for position.

Race 6

(2) CASHENDASH HANOVER was a solid performer last year and might just come back to life for new trainer Richard Banca. (3) SOURCE OF PRIDE gets the post break he needs to have a big say in the outcome; must use. (4) ROCKS N BONDS could be a player with the right journey.

Race 7

(2) REAL FLIGHT takes a step down the condition ladder and that should be exactly what he needs to return to the winner’s circle. (5) HYPNOTIST is another dropping down in class; Bartlett’s choice. (1) AUTOMATIC PILOT won on the fair circuit last time and seems like a reasonable fit.

Race 8

(5) A LA NOTTE HANOVER has been aimed for the moon but can’t seem to get past the clouds. She finds herself a much easier spot this week and should be handled accordingly. (2) RUSTY’S BLISS has a history of performing well from good posts at this level. (1) SCANDALICIOUS looks like a player, at least underneath.

Race 9

(2) ILIKEITREALHOT moves into one of the top percentage barns around and figures to come on the track ready to roll. (1) TOBAGO CAYS finally draws well. Veteran should be close to the action. (5) URGENT ACTION is plenty fast; dangerous at any time.

Race 10

(5) GD AIRLINER ships in from Pocono and seems to have found a good spot. (2) CLASSIC GENT beat lesser last time but still put in a nice mile. (1) HE’S A LOCK deserves respect with Brennan from the cones.

Race 11

(6) DIGITAL Z TAM drops in for a claiming tag and figures to bring a good effort for top barn Garcia-Herrera. (1) PAMS LEGACY goes from post eight to the pylons; improvement expected. (3) JOHNNY Z switches barns and could show more.

Race 12

(1) TYE SEELSTER & (2) BETTORSLUCKSTREAK both appear somewhat formless on paper, but they drop in class and draw well. One of the two should awaken. (6) JOHNNY GRIPPA has some form and can get a good share.
