Yonkers: Monday 2/27 Analysis


MEET STATS: 47 - 132 / $239.10

Best Bet: COME TOGETHER (7th)     Spot Play: YOU LITTLE RASCAL (5th)

Race 1

(8) NORTHERN ATTACK qualified back nicely and he doesn't have a ton of speed inside of him; worth a look from these live connections. (5) LORD OF THE BLING needs a live trip, but he's more than capable. (2) SPEAKING GREEK drops, gets some post relief.

Race 2

(6) BIG SKY THUNDER put in a couple of nice efforts here at the end of 2011; gelding doesn't face any real standouts here and stranger things have happened. (5) S F CIRO looks like the obvious one to beat. (7) SMASHING REVUE was an odds-on winner in his last pari-mutuel effort.

Race 3

(2) GOOD FOR MORE ships from Canada, finds a weak field and has the hungry Mark Macdonald driving. (3) WYGANT BELLE has speed, lacks finishing stamina; from this spot she can hold for share. (7) TERROR TO CAM ships across the river for Burke; she showed next to nothing in stakes action over there.

Race 4

(3) MOVE ON gets some much-needed class relief and the veteran may be able to respond. (5) LODI GOVERNOR has plenty of gate speed and this barn has been going well. (7) BREAK DANCER has always been a favorite of mine, and he sure did respond to the barn change up at Monticello; looks like I missed the boat here.

Race 5

(2) YOU LITTLE RASCAL never really had a shot in all of her local appearances; this looks like a very beatable field here. (4) CHOP CHOP SUEY tired after a tough uncovered trip last out; prior efforts were decent. (3) CAPE MARJ should be close up enough to make some noise.

Race 6

(7) STONEBRIDGE ROCKET ships back locally after facing Itrustyou in his last five starts in stakes action over at The Meadowlands; returns to the winners circle tonight. (5) FALL BLISS was also facing tougher across the river. (6) ROXIES BIG GUY was a curious claim for 30K, lets see if it pans out.

Race 7

(3) COME TOGETHER came uncovered into Tivoli Hanover and was shaken off; there was certainly no shame in that and the Robinson charge seems sharp enough to take this. (2) STRUNG OUT is unproven at this level, but he's raced well in his two starts for Simpson. (1) MILITARY STRATCOM is hard to overlook, despite the rise in class.

Race 8

(5) LISLEA MILES drops in class off last week's disaster; Pena charge has got a big chance to rebound. (1) CAMS ORACLE draws best, has been sharp for ages. (3) LETS ROLL JOE failed to fire last out; he's better than that.

Race 9

(1)BUSHWOOD Z TAM was outfinished in last after a perfect pocket trip; lets give him another chance tonight. (3) GREYSTONE CASH looked very sharp in his pocket-rocket victory; he hikes in class tonight but can certainly repeat. (4) MCDANA N is not a prolific winner but he can be close late.

Race 10

(2) WHOLLY LOUY has speed, draws inside and is priced to sell tonight; any takers? (4) LIGHTNING ELVIS was used up early last out; prior to that he was a check-earning machine. (1) DETERMINE THIS lands back inside and picks up Macdonald.

Race 11

(3) ALFREDSSON gets a severe class test tonight but he may be up to the challenge. (1) LUCKY LAND has looked good in his two local starts. (6) BOLERO ANDREW drops out of stakes action into a seemingly easier spot.
