Yonkers: Monday 8/6 Analysis


MEET STATS: 209 - 629 / $1037.50

Best Bet: ISLAND REDEMPTION (8th)     Spot Play: MOVE ON (1st)

Race 1

(5) MOVE ON was too far back and got going too late last week; Sears drives tonight and the classy veteran is more than capable versus these. (1) KID CRUISER is in good shape and draws best. (3) WICKED N RUDE has a shot, but he's nothing special.

Race 2

(2) CALL ME MADAM gets post relief and the Baynes charge has a shot here if something strange happens. (5) CITY KID gets some needed class relief. (3) KINGSTONE and (7) MELADYS MONET are a couple of three-year-olds who appear to have some ability.

Race 3

(3) TRADE EDITOR was a $75,000 claimer when last seen here; he returns into the basement level tonight. (2) OVERNIGHT DELIGHT also tumbles in class and is clearly the main threat. (4) TAYLORLANE CRUISER looks best of the rest.

Race 4

(3) LYONS ELITE was a game uncovered winner last out; he's likely to repeat here. (1) LADYS BAG MAN showed some improvement in his debut for the Cassar barn. (7) YA GOTTA GO debuts for Peter Fusco and he lures Brennan away from the Casie Coleman trainee....interesting.

Race 5

(3) NEW YORK KITTY looks like odds-on chalk here, but she failed miserably two back versus this type; proceed with caution. (8) AFRICAN QUEEN is a personal favorite of mine, and she races well week in and week out. (1) NELLIESIRISHPRAYER ships in from The Meadowlands, draws best and is worth considering.

Race 6

(5) SOS BREEZER has disappointed in his three local starts but I'm giving him one more chance. (1) SPRING FLING has speed and the rail. (3) S F CIRO has raced well in his last couple and he fits nicely at this bottom claiming level.

Race 7

(1) MOMMA ROCK ships from the big track and draws best in her debut for Banca; could she go down the road here? (8) ROCKTURNAL blew up last week at The Meadowlands; prior Mohawk efforts hint at some potential. (7) SIR LBS Z TAM was a strong pocket-sitting winner last week.

Race 8

(1) ISLAND REDEMPTION drops back to the level of that dominating win three back, and that was with Brennan in the bike. (4) MIXED MEDIA was a solid winner first-time Banca. (5) SWINGINGWITHASHARK is feeling good again.

Race 9

(4) DEAR MAC didn't have the smoothest of trips last week and understandably flattened; give the veteran another chance. (3) ROCKSTAR TEMPER ships from The Big M and gets the hot Dan Dube back in the bike. (7) DEFIANCE N has back class and blew away a cheap field last out.

Race 10

(4) GODDESSS JUSTIN may have been a touch overmatched at the 40K claiming level; he's back at the right level tonight and Brennan hops back aboard. (1) SALVESTER STALLION should appreciate the post relief. (2) VESUVIO GRANDE also draws well, his first good post in some time.

Race 11

(1) HI HO STEVERINO was game and stubborn in defeat last week; down the road tonight. (6) NY ICE was treated rudely last out; Buter trainee can try to be forwardly placed again. (4) CAMS ORACLE seems to fit ok with these class-wise.

Race 12

(3) SHARP WEST HANOVER beat these two back after a good trip; Sears could work out another favorable journey tonight from this spot. (2) RU READY TO ROCK has live speed and and a live draw. (6) GRAMS LEGACY ships in for new connections; hard to gauge.
