Yonkers: Saturday 3/31 Analysis


MEET STATS: 77 - 225 / $365.20

Best Bet: FOILED AGAIN (9th)     Spot Play: RIVER SHARK (7th)

Race 1

(2) JERRYS BROWN GOLD plunges in class tonight and should take control from the outset. (8) MIAS BOLD MANEUVER drops out of claimers and he has the speed to overcome the outside draw. (6) ON THE BRINK also gets some class relief and picks up Brennan.

Race 2

(5) ELECTRIC OUI has shown renewed life in his last two and he appears capable at this level. (2) CIGAR HALL was defeated last out versus lesser, but that was a quick race. (3) DASH N gets some needed post relief and he's factored with this type in the past.

Race 3

(1) REAL NICE fired to the lead, was able to rate the half and had plenty late to hold off the almighty Folied Again; I can't see anything getting in his way tonight. Take the $2.20 win price. (2) MAINLAND KEY N may sit the pocket from start to finish. (7) REIBERCROMBIE was an upset winner in round one, but he's stuck outside again.

Race 4

(4) RAMPAGE JACKSON has two even efforts over this surface; he may be fast enough to go with these and the price should be right. (1) ATOCHIA looms the obvious one to beat from the rail. (3) ART Z was nicely piloted to victory last week by Brett Miller.

Race 5

(6) DEAR MAC has had good pace in all four starts since the claim; he can reach tonight with live cover. (5) LIFE UP FRONT picks up Brennan, could be a speed threat here. (3) NOBLES GRAND SLAM could hang around for a share.

Race 6

(2) CODE WORD was soundly defeated in round one of the Levy; classy Burke charge deserves another chance given the live draw. (1) SILENT SWING should fire hard from the rail and he can take these a long way. (4) ONE MORE LAUGH was much-improved in his second seasonal start.

Race 7

(2) RIVER SHARK finished with pace behind some good ones but he was too far back to threaten; he will be much closer to the action tonight. (5) SOUTHERN ALLIE could have a clear shot to the lead tonight. (1) SEA VENTURE finally put it together last week, but now he faces tougher foes.

Race 8

(1) NOB HILL HIGH is arguably in career form; if Stratton can hustle him out hard enough and secure at least the pocket he'll be very tough late. (2) SUMMER CAMP couldn't last in round one; he draws well again. (3) CLEAR VISION was in an easier division last week and won accordingly.

Race 9

(2) FOILED AGAIN was super in defeat in his 2012 debut; I can't see anything getting close to him tonight. (1)  BLATANTLY GOOD loses Brennan, should still complete the $6 exacta. (3) MACRAIDER N will be close up and complete the $10 trifecta.

Race 10

(7) TOBAGO CAYS doesn't face Open competition tonight and that can get him over the hump, even from the outside post. (6) EMJAYEM GRAND A has predictably been super since joining the Pena barn. (4) MAJOR BELLE can be considered from these connections.

Race 11

(4) FOUR TRUMPS A didn't have the smoothest of trips last out; he can be trouble here if Stalbaum can make the lead. (1) SAILING CRUISE draws best, has Brennan. (2) FOREST VIC A is still going strong at age 13.

Race 12

(2) LUCKY MAN failed with little excuse last week; another chance. (7) POKER HAT has shown renewed energy for Pena. (1) CANACO RUN is good enough to hold for a share.
