Email

MEET STATS: 432 - 1235 / $2,377.20

Best Bet: CONCUR (5th)

Spot Play: HIGGINS (7th)

 

Race 1

(8) MI VIDA is probably best here from top connections but she has to generate some early speed. (1) ANOTHER LOOK will be right there but she's not the best finisher. (2) CLIMATE CHANGE moves back inside and will be close up throughout.

Race 2

(8) PAWN SHOP JUNKIE raced well enough to win last week but ran into a tough rival; he needs help from this spot but does seem sharpest here. (1) ROCKIN INDY has good speed and the best draw. (2) BURKES BANDIT does draw better and picks up Bartlett; eligible for improvement.

Race 3

(3) WINNERS OVER gets away from the eight hole tonight, where she put in back-to-back good efforts; post relief can make all the difference tonight. (7) ROSY OUTLOOK closed well last week from a similar spot; hard to ignore anything from Bartlett/Milici. (6) SOUTHWIND TANGO faltered late in the mile last out after an aggressive try.

Race 4

(1) ZUZU really hasn't put in a bad effort at Yonkers and she has a serious post edge on her main rivals. (8) SKINNY DIPPER is clearly tons the best but she goes for new connections and has to overcome the eight hole; short price. (3) FAMILY ROLL CALL was Dube's choice and could be considered underneath.

Race 5

(4) CONCUR never fired with his best last week but he gets needed post relief and should head to the front. (1) BEACH OGRE flashed good speed upon arrival and he should be looking for a live stalking trip. (2) AZUL POOL was outfinished last week but could show more tonight.

Race 6

(1) WISHIWASAGIGOLO ran super last out to upset the heavy favorite and he can certainly repeat from the best post. (8) ROCK POWER steps up in class off a solid local debut for the Milici barn. (4) NURSERY ED likely needed last week's start and could have more to offer.

Race 7

(4) HIGGINS didn't race badly upon arrival from Indiana and he should show much more tonight from this improved spot. (1) SANTIAGO STYLE gets needed post relief and is a win candidate. (5) STELLA'S PHELLA finally left town to face easier and break his maiden; he's back locally and is his usual threat to hit the bottom of the ticket.

Race 8

(1) SETTLEMOIR was a solid second in his local debut and he can build off that effort. (4) MANNY was a NYSS finalist and was also entered in the Messenger; clearly the ability is there. (5) FINE DIAMOND has been solid in his last two local efforts for Burke.

Race 9

(3) MOTHER OF ART was a solid second in the Lady Courageous at Northfield and raced well in her last two local appearances; top billing. (2) AMERICAN IVY was very good in her debut for new connections but she faces tougher here. (7) I SAID PLEASE is a contender but is at a post disadvantage again.

Race 10

(4) IDEAL JIMMY was second best to a killer last week; no such foe in here tonight. (3) WINNING LINC has been on quite a form spree for Banca. (2) HAVE NOT READ IT arrives from Pocono for Allard and should be a good fit here.
