Yonkers: Monday 6/20 Analysis


MEET STATS: 136 - 595 / $880.80  BEST BETS: 14 - 60 / $63.20

Best Bet: CITY HALL (9th)

Spot Play: DEVILS CUT (6th)


Race 1

(4) UPSIDE SURPRISE makes her return to Yonkers where she has done her best. Sophomore filly has every right to grab her first score of the year. (6) WISHY WASHY GIRL gets class relief but will have to get the job done from the 6-hole; maybe. (2) JACKIE O put in a mild rally for fourth money last out and this should fare well from the 2-hole.

Race 2

(4) QUEEN OF DARKNESS did not fire at Tioga last out but pacing filly is back on the half-mile oval; threat at her best. (1) BONIELLO leaves her Philly headquarters and should be right in the mix from the fence. (7) GHOST RUNNER rallied strongly to nail down the place spot last time out; not out of this.

Race 3

(1) MANDALAY HALL Sharp for the victory at Pocono last time out. Pacing colt seems to be in fine form so two straight is clearly not out of the question. (5) CONCUR was quite good for show money against NYSS foes at Monticello in his latest. (4) ROLL WITH FRED needs a favorable trip to contend with these; possible.

Race 4

(5) EXCELANT CHANCE has put in three great tries and this gal will try to return to her winning ways against this group. (1) SELFIE makes her return to Yonkers after chasing NYSS foes and the rail should help her cause. (8) SHE SHAID raced evenly and held on for the show spot last time out; post hurts but she is capable.

Race 5

(2) TWIN B SWEETHEART comes by way of Canada and this mare has tactical speed and figures to be ready to fire at her best with a well rated drive. (4) AMERICAN IMAGE was sent down the road last out for all the glory; main danger again. (3) NIPS BEACH GIRL gets a better post and could make some serious noise.

Race 6

(3) DEVILS CUT did not have it from the far outside post last time around. Gelding is better than recent event so door number three should help his cause; big threat. (4) DO OVER HANOVER Even finish in his last trip but should show more speed and be right in the hunt. (7) LONE SURVIVOR will need a better trip to contend in here; maybe.

Race 7

(3) SIR ZIGGYS Z TAM Gelding did get the job done two trips ago however he did not do so well in his last try but this pacer is very capable of returning to his winning ways. (2) YS LOTUS has hit the board in his last four starts; the one to fear. (6) BIG N BAD took charge right from the start and never looked back for all the marbles last time out.

Race 8

(5) SHORTSTACKED Two fine efforts makes this gelding a prime contender and good to see Brennan with the assignment. (1) A BETTOR HAT retains the fence and showed good early pace in his last try; major player. (6) ROYAL HEART has wheeled off two straight victories but will have to win from the 6-hole to make it the hat trick; we shall see.

Race 9

(2) CITY HALL moves down the ladder and catches a weak group; ready for action. (4) WESTERN ROCKSTAR A came very wide for an easy victory at the Meadowlands last out. (3) GHOST PINE showed good early pace at Philly in his most recent outing.

Race 10

(3) ELWELL gets post relief and was a fast closing fourth last out missing the score by a 1 3/4 lengths; figures to be ready to mow these down with a well rated drive from Zeron. (1) WESTERN PIONEER missed glory by only a neck at Philly and keeps the rail spot; dangerous. (5) STOVER Gelding might have been used up in the early stages and held on for fourth money recently.

Race 11

(3) TWIN B HONOUR is knocking at the door based on her last two tries and tonight gets a cozy post to work with; gets the call. (6) BLACK WIDOW BABY has done quite well this year hitting the board 10 out of 17 starts; main danger. (5) HEAVENLY HILL has scored two in a row and her qualifier at Philly last out was sharp; not out of this.

Race 12

(5) YORK SEELSTER Canadian invader has good speed and this could be a good spot for this gelding to greet the cameraman for pictures; worth a play. (2) SPORTSKEEPER was late on the scene to nail down the third spot in his last trip to the post and should be right in the thick of it with Brennan at the helm. (1) QUICK FUN N has scored in his last two starts and now moves up in class; don't overlook from the rail.
