Yonkers: Saturday 4/7 Analysis


MEET STATS: 82 - 249 / $386.70

Best Bet: SAINT WILLIAM A (11th)     Spot Play: STRAND HANOVER (5th)

Race 1

(1) JETTIN JUSTIN takes a needed drop in class and gets needed post relief; down the road in the opener. (4) ON THE BRINK should be closer to the action tonight. (2) EAGLE JOLT can hang around for a share.

Race 2

(1) SEA VENTURE rated a soft clip and dug in for the score in round two of the Levy; he draws best again and the game plan should be the same. (3) POWER OF TARA N makes his third local start and gets post relief tonight; big Down-Under earner looks like he's fast enough to compete here. (7) CODE WORD is good, but got the worst of the draw.

Race 3

(4) SHOTGUN A gets Gingras in the bike tonight and he faces no world-beaters here; worth a play. (2) HANDSOME HARRY gets a better draw and he can carry his speed a long way tonight. (1) SAN ANTONY O has been in decent form recently.

Race 4

(1) RIVER SHARK came up a neck shy chasing a rated pace last week; MacDonald should send the classy gelding to the lead and never look back. (2) CLEAR VISION faltered last week off a first-over trip; he looks like the primary threat here. (5) URGENT ACTION finished with very willing pace from third over last out.

Race 5

(7) STRAND HANOVER finished with plenty of pace but had the unfortunate luck of having to chase Folied Again and company; he's razor-sharp and should be a factor, even from post seven. (1) REIBERCROMBIE was an upset winner in round one, then had no chance; threat tonight from the rail. (6) ATOCHIA is perfect in the Levy, but he shouldn't have it so easy tonight.

Race 6

(1) SOUTHERN ALLIE should have an easy trip tonight and he can prove best as the likely favorite. (2) DANCIN YANKEE was a game second two back when drawn inside. (4) ART Z seems to get along nicely with Brett Miller.

Race 7

(1) FOILED AGAIN has come back as sharp as ever; it's almost unfair that he lands the rail here. (2) NOB HILL HIGH may well be in career form and it seems logical that he can complete the exacta. (4) BLATANTLY GOOD looks clearly best of the rest.

Race 8

(2) REAL NICE was totally alone last week and paid $2.10 to win; no reason to think anyone can beat him tonight. (4) BJS BEQUIA gets some needed post relief and could show some late interest. (3) MACRAIDER N proved to be a touch outclassed last week; Pena charge should be close up again.

Race 9

(3) LIFE UP FRONT is better than his recent lines would indicate; he shows a win against these last fall with Stratton in the bike. (1) JACKED UP has speed and the rail; logical. (4) TYLER HANOVER was in over his head last week, gets class relief tonight.

Race 10

(4) RAMPAGE JACKSON gets away from the Levy free-for-allers tonight and he should be forwardly placed tonight. (2) GRAB YOUR KEYS was a good second two back at this level with Brett Miller driving. (4) DEAR MAC is a closing threat.

Race 11

(4) SAINT WILLIAM A gets needed post relief after chasing some tough ones on the rim in his last three; expect Stalbaum to get very aggressive here. (1) DIABLO SEELSTER raced like an international good thing after taking all the money last out; he can chase from inside and hold off the rest. (3) LEAN ON YOU is in career form.

Race 12

(3) FOUR TRUMPS A bottomed out lesser last week; he's got plenty of class and he could complete the Stalbaum late double. (1) SPY N was a winner when last seen at this level. (5) JERRYS BROWN GOLD pummeled weaker, could land a share here.
