Yonkers: Saturday 4/11 Analysis


MEET STATS: 106 - 333 / $564.70  BEST BETS: 13 - 26 / $46.10

Best Bet: MICHAEL’S POWER (6th)

Spot Play: GRANTOR HANOVER (1st)


Race 1

(6) GRANTOR HANOVER looked so impressive blitzing lesser from the eight hole off the Brainard claim that he's worth following on the rise in class. (1) PANONGAHELA looked primed for more last out, paced home steadily but was outfinished. He's worth using from the rail spot. (4) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM drops in class, looks to have a chance and will likely take the 'Lachance money'.

Race 2

(2) LIFE UP FRONT was shuffled back last week in a tough-luck try. Prior race at this level was a winning effort. (1) ROCK ON MOE was taken back at the start last week, his first start of the season. That was a needed tightener and he should be better tonight. (3) BLADE SEELSTER has blast-out speed and usually offers a price.

Race 3

(4) CAPITAL ACCOUNT was clearly overmatched in the Levy series, through he did manage to pick up a small check in round one; four-year-old should find these more to his liking. (5) BIGRISK drops back to a competitive level and gets post relief. (1) LETTUCEROCKU A saved ground and beat a slightly softer group last out; veteran should land a share from this inside post.

Race 4

(2) BIG N BAD didn't do much in the Levy but he wasn't exactly awful; efforts prior to the Stakes races were stellar. (3) HALL BRO makes his third start off the bench for Burke and I would expect him to show more. (7) FLIPPER J won't be winning from out there but he can rally late at a price.

Race 5

(6) WARRAWEE NEEDY was in very tough spots in his last two and was unable to perform at his best. Veteran is outside again but he should be able to fire to the front. (2) MACH IT SO sat and didn't fire in a quick mile last week; he's better than that. (4) BETTOR'S EDGE really disappointed last week after rating a comfortable pace.

Race 6

(2) TAKE IT BACK TERRY did trip out last week but he was very good at the same time; Burke trainee is capable of repeating. (6) SAPPHIRE CITY looks like his old self again and Dube should blast from the gate. (1) TEXICAN N has quietly made some good money in the series and he should pick up another nice share from this spot.

Race 7

(1) MICHAEL'S POWER has been rock-solid in his Levy attempts, including a nice off-the-pace effort last week. Gelding looms the one to beat from this spot. (4) LUCAN HANOVER was aggressively handled early last out and was collared by P H Supercam; Harris trainee looks second best again. (2) NATIONAL DEBT has been okay so far and rallied well last week.

Race 8

(7) DW'S NY YANK could not have had it any easier in last week's abbreviated field; Burke trainee will head to the front again and can make it three straight. (8) NOT AFRAID lands outside of the top choice again which will make things difficult. (6) BACKSTREET HANOVER has been racing well in her last few; she may be too far back to threaten for the top spot but can spice up the bottom of the ticket.

Race 9

(3) CASIMIR JITTERBUG was a sharp pocket-sitting winner last out and he can certainly repeat. (5) ONE THROUGH TEN has hit the board in all recent attempts and his good early speed will put him into play. (4) THE REAL ONE was sharp for Lachance right off the layoff.

Race 10

(4) OFF LIKA PROMDRESS steps up to face tougher but he's been sharp, was Buter's choice and could offer a nice price. (3) DAVID'S DREAM probably has more ability than he's been showing. (1) DREAM OUT LOUD N hasn't looked particularly great since returning this year but he does have loads of back class.

Race 11

(1) RU READY TO ROCK was used a bit early before taking back and wasn't heard from again. From the rail spot tonight the Godinez trainee gets a weak call. (4) HERE WE GO AGAIN paced a big third quarter last week but was nailed by the rival he towed into the race. (2) IN COMMANDO steps up off a sharp trip-sitting win.

Race 12

(1) SMOOTH CRIMINAL dropped out of the Levy and jogged versus one notch lesser; call to repeat from this spot. (2) MAINLAND KEY N also steps up off a victory and he's fortunate again with the post draw; oldtimer should be close up throughout. (4) THE LUNCH PAIL took too much money last out and wilted when driven to the lead; that's not his style and he will revert to closing tactics tonight.
