Yonkers: Monday 3/4 Analysis


MEET STATS: 54 - 144 / $317.30     BEST BETS: 7 - 11 / $22.70

Best Bet: I LOOK SPECIAL (6th)      

Spot Play: IMPRESSIVE EARL (4th)

Race 1

Mark MacDonald chose (4) ILL CALL U BACK over a Mark Ford trainee; that's enough to make him my selection. (1) REAL GENTLEMAN should be more involved from this spot. (5) LOOKETTEJASPER hasn't been at his best recently.

Race 2

(1) GOTTA LUV IT plunges in class, draws best and deserves top billing from this spot. (3) DOULLY was a good second at this level two back. (2) CASH VALUE faltered on the front end in his second local start; he deserves consideration here.

Race 3

(3) LIZ'S LIL K K has been solid over at The Meadowlands; assuming she can get around the half mile she should be tough in here. (5) BAD FEELING is a half sister to Feeling You, who won the Open the other day; filly gets a test tonight. (8) HERE AGAIN looks like she has the speed to overcome the poor draw.

Race 4

(8) IMPRESSIVE EARL won at first asking off the long layoff and the veteran can repeat despite the eight hole. (5) RAMBLIN RICK has some speed when he stays flat. (6) S F CIRO has been a steady commodity lately.

Race 5

(2) AINT GOT A HOME is much-improved in her last two and she outdraws her main competition. (5) SHES LOVIN IT folded on the front end last week; prior effort was good. (6) ARTIES LAST PARTY has raced well here in the past.

Race 6

(1) I LOOK SPECIAL drops to the basement and the mare has no excuse to fail. (2) TOUCHDOWN FRANCO also drops back down in class and draws better. (5) SWING AND A HIT has Bartlett driving tonight.

Race 7

(3) BABE'S I SCOOT was a good second three back, then had no chance in his last two. He gets class and post relief tonight. (1) ALL TIGER N has done nothing since that claim; he's capable of better. (2) MAYTIME TERROR hails from live connections; hard to ignore.

Race 8

(2) WHO DAT LOVE gets some class relief tonight, and note that last fall at Philly he beat the highly regarded Mr. Hasani N; worth a try from this inside post. (5) ARTHUR had no real chance last week; price should be good here. (7) ARTS IDEAL HANOVER is erratic, but he's got some talent.

Race 9

(2) GLASS PACK was outfinished from a loose pocket last week; let's see if he can get back on the winning track. (4) PRINT IT debuts for another new barn tonight and has Brennan driving. (3) DASH N should be able to land a share from this spot.

Race 10

(2) WYNSUM MAGIC has taken three straight in impressive fashion; there's no reason to jump off the bandwagon now. (4) WISHER bumped to this level off the claim and scored last week; threat again. (1) DIABLO SEELSTER joins a new barn tonight, draws best and can bounce back off last week's dull effort.

Race 11

(2) NEWBEGINING was pretty game in defeat last week; he's up in class tonight off the claim but there's no real standouts here. (7) FRIDAYNIGHTFLIGHT impressed me with last week's effort and he certainly can repeat. (6) ARSENAL returns locally looking for three straight; hard to ignore any Burke horse.

Race 12

(8) MACHAPELO is stuck in the eight hole upon arrival; big-time freshman earner appears to be on the comeback trail. (7) OUREA NOURRIR drops in class and could be a closing threat. (3) ARMBRO BILLOW has been flat recenrly at The Meadowlands; maybe the change in scenery can help.
