Yonkers: Monday 12/8 Analysis


MEET STATS: 359 - 1046 / $1891.50  BEST BETS: 57 - 85 / $185.20

Best Bet: DANISHDUJOUR (5th)

Spot Play: THE AMAZING ART (1st)

Race 1

(4) THE AMAZING ART closed belatedly from the eight hole last week in his debut for the DiDomenico barn; he can be much closer tonight at nowhere near his 20/1 morning line. (1) FAIRYTALE PRINCE has been a steady check-earner and he draws best. (2) BLACK HAMMER had a useful local debut.

Race 2

(3) WELL CONNECTED KID raced well in the slop last week; clearly he can top these. (2) IVANA HANOVER has speed and a better draw. (6) MY MUSCLEMAN picks up the red-hot Bartlett in the bike upon arrival from Saratoga.

Race 3

(7) ARUBA VACATION has loads of back class and with his early speed the outside post shouldn't present a serious problem. (2) FALCOR BLUESTONE ships from Canada for Auciello and could be a good fit here. (3) BULLVILLE ATA GIRL flattened out in her local debut but maybe she can hang on for the bottom of the ticket tonight.

Race 4

(4) MISSY GOLDFIRE was too far back in one of last week's added-distance events; mare drops to the winning level tonight. (6) SUN OF A VICTORY also drops in class and should be forwardly placed. (8) EASTER LEGGS raced well last week but she may be done in by the eight hole.

Race 5

(3) DANISHDUJOUR gets both serious class and post relief tonight; pretty logical selecting here. (2) BOOTS N BOURBON had poor cover but rallied decently last week. (5) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT keeps Merton and he looks for two straight.

Race 6

(1) MASSACAIA raced very well in defeat upon arrival and the colt can take the next logical step tonight. (6) TAC'S DELIGHT is probably best but he has to behave himself. (2) WILD SMILE should never be far back from this spot.

Race 7

(5) COMMISSIONER DALEY looked very strong last week and he can clearly take another. (1) SON OF NORDIC has speed, class and the best draw. (2) TAMASIN HALL gets to put her nose on the gate tonight.

Race 8

(3) HOT RODDY has raced well to be second best in his last two; gelding is as good as any in here. (1) SHADY CITY has been racing well for Team Stalbaum. (4) DIAMOND KEEPER goes second-time Lasix and drops in class; big threat.

Race 9

(3) ROCK ICON gets needed post relief and should have a tactical edge on his main rivals. (5) THAT'S THE LIFE has done little wrong hitting the ticket in his last two. (6) ROADWAY is loaded with back class but his form isn't the best.

Race 10

(6) IDEALBEACH HANOVER seems to be a bit more talented than these and he only needs a live trip to score. (1) BEACHY DREAM gets another crack from the rail looking for two straight. (3) STIRLING CADILLAC will likely be flashing early speed from this spot.

Race 11

(4) MISTER ANSON looked strong going wire-to-wire last out versus similar; repeats. (2) KEEP IT SWEET ships in for new connections and the filly may be a good fit here; maybe we need to watch one, however. (8) MARKUP HANOVER could be forwardly placed off the gate.

Race 12

(3) MOLIERE HANOVER was third best to two tough ones last week; graduates tonight. (2) ELECTRIC CRUISER ships back off some okay-looking lines at The Meadowlands and he returns to Sears. (8) CARD SHOCK could spice up the exotics from the eight hole.
