Yonkers: Saturday 11/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 377 - 1144 / $2,107.00  BEST BETS: 54 - 92 / $189.10

Best Bet: IDEAL COWBOY (8th)

Spot Play: MACHS BEACH BOY (5th)


Race 1

(5) ROCK ICON gets some class relief and Kakaley sticks with him; worth a look in this suspect field. (3) KIPPENBERGER N raced decently last week after hanging off a trip the start prior; have to respect these connections. (2) GALLANT SEELSTER was second best in a good speed try last out.

Race 2

(2) BONDI HANOVER kicked in too late off the cover flow last week; perhaps he'll be close enough to strike from this improved post. (3) GD AIRLINER returns locally and was an easy winner two back. (1) GOOD DAY MATE has speed and the best draw; consider underneath.

Race 3

(3) STONEBRIDGE TONIC has been good since the DiDomenico claim and he should be forwardly placed from this spot. (5) JONES BEACH double-jumps in class and loses Bartlett but that sure was an impressive win last out. (2) DULL ROAR returns locally up in class and is looking for three straight.

Race 4

(3) LONEWOLF CURRIER takes a suspicious big drop to the 40K claiming ranks despite racing very well in the 75K claimers; if he's okay he'll destroy these. (5) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT returns from Saratoga where he has been racing pretty well and he seems like he may fit with these. (4) COACH CAL gets post relief and was a decent second two back.

Race 5

(2) MACHS BEACH BOY gets that all-important combo of class and post relief; Lachance can sit right off (3) FORTY FIVE RED and roll by late. The latter has loads of speed and an aggressive driver. (4) FIERY LUSTRE N raced evenly last out off cover and he figures for a share here.

Race 6

(6) MELMERBY BEACH was very good in defeat in his local debut for new connections and the 4-year-old can build off that effort. (8) NATIONAL DEBT has been awesome in two starts for Allard. (1) HARDTS OR BETTER was a winless commodity until the Banca claim, and now he's looking for four straight but these may be too tough for him; use underneath.

Race 7

(2) FREESPIN N didn't fire at all off cover last week but the start prior he was a gutsy winner; Bartlett may be on the move early with him. (4) PHIL YOUR BOOTS had no chance last week from the eight hole; has an obvious shot tonight from the better post. (5) ALBERTO CONTADOR N had no late punch last week but he's capable of better.

Race 8

(8) IDEAL COWBOY just missed to Take It Back Terry in a good try last week and now he's back facing 4-year-olds; Bamond trainee looks much the best despite the outside post. (6) BIGTOWN HERO was a game winner in his local return for Allard and he factors highly here. (1) ASLAN is assigned the rail again and should hang around for a share like he did the last two weeks.

Race 9

(4) SHADOW PLACE steps up in class again but has been very sharp for Lachance and could be worth a try if the price is right. (5) LUCAN HANOVER is best here and is supposed to win but he won't be much value. (3) FAMEOUS WESTERN is up a notch looking for two straight.

Race 10

(3) SPARKY MARK was a solid winner right off the bench and the Allard trainee can repeat. (1) DEMOCRACY N was second best to the top choice last week and rates just as highly tonight, especially from the best post. (5) JUSTIFIED wasn't bad last out and can offer some value underneath.

Race 11

(4) PANIC DISORDER wasn't bad last week but was a victim of the uncovered trip; he returns to Dube in the bike and they teamed up to win three back. (2) REUBEN BROGDEN N is back up in class off a confidence-building victory. (1) TWIN B HOLLISTER lasted against lesser last week and he'll have to be at his best against these.

Race 12

(6) GARNET RIVER A had finishing pace last week but had no chance after being shuffled to last; veteran seems to be a decent fit in a race begging for an upset. (5) SAFE HARBOR has been off his game but the effort three back with Sears in the bike was decent. (7) AUCKLAND FLYER had good finishing kick last out and will be a big price.
