Yonkers: Saturday 2/13 Analysis


MEET STATS: 35 - 117 / $218.60 

BEST BETS: 5 - 10 / $18.00

Best Bet: CYCLONE KIWI N (10th)

Spot Play: MELMERBY BEACH (7th)

Race 1

(1) HIGHVIEW CONALL N hasn't fired with his best in his last two after a nice local debut; class and post relief can get him over the top tonight. (6) SNAP TO IT A also gets needed class relief but Bartlett has to get aggressive early for his best chance. (3) MAINLAND KEY N needed his last start and the veteran fits with these; consider at a decent price.

Race 2

(2) ALLERAGE STAR ships from The Meadowlands into a seemingly easier spot; she's logical but won't offer much value. (1) SPIDER BLUE CHIP toured the track in his debut for new connections; expect more from the inside post. (6) WARRAWEE ONYX gets tested for class tonight but has been super in his three starts for DiDomenico.

Race 3

(3) WINDS OF CHANGE loses Bartlett to the Banca rail piece but he's got plenty of speed and could get the jump on these. (1) CARTOON DADDY has raced well since the barn change and should be right there. (2) DIAL OR NO DIAL has been racing well and has plenty of back class but has missed almost three weeks.

Race 4

(7) PANCHESTER UNITED is up in class and stuck outside but in his first start for these new connections he looked so sharp I'm inclined to give him another play. (3) URBANA BAYAMA chased the top one second best; he's also razor-sharp. (1) HEEZ ORL BLACK N raced gamely last week to dead-heat for the win and now the Vallee charge draws best.

Race 5

(4) SANTANNA ONE raced well in his last two while coming from too far back; this is not a strong field and the Ruiz trainee should take charge. (2) BLATANTLY BEST was second best versus similar last week. (1) THE LUNCH PAIL gets needed class relief and from the best post he has no excuse not to land a share.

Race 6

(8) CRAZSHANA is banished to the eight hole tonight but he's been so good in his first two starts for Bamond I'm going to endorse him on top. Price should be ok, too. (1) MONEY MAVEN has been super for Julie Miller and he gets a very generous spot. (7) RED HOT HERBIE is back with Dube, who steered this trotter to his last two victories.

Race 7

(3) MELMERBY BEACH gets some class relief off a series of aggressive efforts; he deserves top billing despite Bartlett opting off. (6) CASIMIR JITTERBUG has come back sharp this season for O'Sullivan and has a chance here. (7) HARDTS OR BETTOR has made a ton of money for Banca since the claim; let's see how he does from a rare outside post for the leading trainer.

Race 8

(7) PHIL YOUR BOOTS has shown little from his last two poor posts, with a solid front-end victory in between; lets home for some early action from him off the gate tonight. (4) ROLAND N ROCK steps up to this level off back-to-back big winning efforts. (1) TYE SEELSTER backed up last week leading to this week's Banca rail assignment; Bartlett's back driving and he could hang around for a share.

Race 9

(3) SAPPHIRE CITY was baked up on the front end last week; I like that he's right back in, and from an improved post. (5) NORTHVIEW PUNTER N was just shy in his U.S. debut after gapping the pocket; he seems capable of improving off that effort. (4) ONE THROUGH TEN just missed at this level last out.

Race 10

(3) CYCLONE KIWI N went a rugged effort in defeat last out just missing in a :27 last quarter and the Bamond charge appears way overdue. (5) DRUNKEN DESIRE A gets some needed class relief. (6) BIT OF A LEGEND N took action in his U.S. debut and was a sharp two-move winner versus lesser; contender.

Race 11

(6) CLEMENTINE DREAM has been right there in her last three starts at this level yet still may offer value in this competitive event. (5) TWEET ME and (1) ZOOMING both drop from Open competition, where they had been overmatched; either or both could wake up here.

Race 12

(4) TWIN B HOLLISTER was used hard twice in the mile last week yet still lasted gamely for second; three back he was also sharp in defeat. Banca charge deserves top billing. (3) THE COURT JESTER A closed belatedly from an outside spot after having no chance upon arrival from Australia; he's got a big chance with the better post, but good luck getting 8/1 like his morning line indicates. (1) CAUTION SIGNS gets needed post relief and should land a share.
