Yonkers: Saturday 4/30 Analysis


MEET STATS: 144 - 418 / $758.70

BEST BETS: 19 - 35 / $65.30

Best Bet: TWIN B HOLLISTER (10th)

Spot Play: ONE THROUGH TEN (1st)

Race 1

(4) ONE THROUGH TEN hasn't done much recently but that was facing better than he sees tonight; veteran should revert back to speed tactics from this spot. (2) FREESPIN N returns from vacation, draws well enough and could be a player. (5) MCERLEAN has missed some time after last competing in the Levy and he needs to find a way into the race.

Race 2

(1) RURAL ART was a clear second best to a heavy favorite last week and he can trip out tonight from another good post. (3) DRUNKEN DESIRE A couldn't reach in his last two; post relief should help his cause. (5) BIG N BAD is back at the level of his win three back and he's got loads of class.

Race 3

(3) SHORTSTACKED drops back to the level where he's been most competitive and he could offer some value here. (4) MAINLAND KEY N made an uncharacteristic late break after flashing speed last week; veteran hails from the potent Stratton/Tritton team. (5) SNAP TO IT A never had a chance last week; Bartlett can be more involved from this spot.

Race 4

(1) RONNY BUGATTI doesn't seem to win as often as he should but he can certainly trip out from this spot. (4) CYCLONE KIWI N was a solid two-move winner last week versus one notch lesser. (3) KEYSTONE HONOR qualified effectively and he's a decent fit with these.

Race 5

(3) GALACTIC GALLEON N has been very sharp in his last two for Vallee and he seems capable with a live trip. (5) ROCK ON MOE gets some post relief after being unable to reach last week and he's got a proven history here. (1) SOHO JACKMAN A has gone evenly in his last two; he needs to step up his game a bit to hit the top spot.

Race 6

(7) DOMETHATAGAIN held well for third chasing Wiggle It Jiggleit in the Levy consolation last week; Allard trainee may need a bit of help from this outside spot but he certainly is capable. (5) POLAK A failed in the Levy but was a terror in his Open starts prior. (3) MISTER BLING A just missed after a solid try in his U.S debut and he must be followed.

Race 7

(4) SUNFIRE BLUE CHIP flashed good speed last week versus better but lacked needed late punch; note that three back he was a winner at this level at 1/5. (1) KINGS BARNS has been a new horse since moving to the Allard barn. (5) SOHO LENNON A has been rock-solid in his three U.S. starts.

Race 8

(7) MELADY'S MONET was snapped on the wire last week after cutting the pace; he will likely have another clear path to the front and can rebound. (6) LUMINOSITY was never involved last out; I suspect he'll be forwardly placed tonight. (8) MAJOR ATHENS looks for two in a row but the far outside post will certainly complicate matters.

Race 9

(1) STOLEN CAR sports a nice win record this year after being shut out in 2015 and with the move back inside he looms a big player. (5) GHOST PINE gave way on the front end last out after taking the money; he's been sharp recently and deserves another look at an improved price. (4) FOOL ME ONCE is back up in class off an easy win but he loses Bartlett tonight.

Race 10

(1) TWIN B HOLLISTER gets the all-important combo of class and post relief; down the road. (4) GIVENUPDREAMING follows the same pattern as the top choice and he will be more aggressively handled. (2) SOMETHING FOR DOC exits a good try versus lesser.

Race 11

(1) CLINT WESTWOOD was a winner three back at this level when last inside; the major post relief makes him a major player. (5) WESTERN ROCKSTAR A didn't go the smoothest of trips last week being used hard to the front; Sears is back driving. (7) FORTY FIVE RED jogged in last and I have to assume he'll be trying to fire from the gate.

Race 12

(4) GREAT VINTAGE was a dominating winner last out and clearly can repeat facing slightly tougher. (2) THE REAL ONE hasn't really gotten underway yet this year but I have to assume the ship will be righted soon. (5) SAPPHIRE CITY clearly fits with these and he's coming off two solid front-end efforts.
