Yonkers: Saturday 6/21 Analysis


MEET STATS: 183 - 528 / $958.00  BEST BETS: 32 - 43 / $105.90

Best Bet: HESTON BLUE CHIP (6th)

Spot Play: GREAT VINTAGE (10th)


Race 1

(2) PAMS LEGACY steps up to face tougher for his new connections but he's been razor-sharp and is worth following. (8) REPORT FOR DUTY N was stung to the lead and gave way last week; being stuck outside again doesn't help but the veteran has to be included on exotic tickets. (5) COLONIAL ROAD could be a closing threat given a live trip.

Race 2

(1) SAMANDAR has done well here in the past and the Bruce Saunders-trained veteran lands in a seemingly perfect spot. (8) DIAMOND COWBOY returns at a reduced level and has the speed to overcome the outside post. (3) THE REAL ONE ships from Quebec to join the Lachance barn and he's had plenty of success with these types in the past.

Race 3

(5) TOBAGO CAYS has plenty of speed and an aggressive driver; veteran is worth a play. (2) RU READY TO ROCK drops a notch off a decent effort and he draws well again. (3) SHORTSTACKED toured the track last week from the eight hole; he's a proven threat when drawn inside.

Race 4

(4) BJ'S GUY drops, gets a better post and faces a field full of question marks; gets a weak vote. (1) TREND SPOTTER ships in with decent form, draws best and was Brennan's choice; gelding will attract attention at the windows. (3) NEPTUNE is a good money-earner who gets along well with Stalbaum.

Race 5

(4) RONNY BUGATTI did well to hold second once he was inhaled by Pancetta; four-year-old appears ready to score. (2) I LIKE DREAMIN bumped up to this level last week and rallied well for a share from the eight hole; threat from this inside spot. (5) AMERICAN RAGE makes his third start back from vacation and he could be tighter.

Race 6

(2) HESTON BLUE CHIP returns locally sporting solid current form, including a big effort to be second best to Sweet Lou two back. Despite being third choice on the morning line the Toscano trainee clearly looks like the one to beat in here. (8) P H SUPERCAM needs some help from this spot but the Levy winner isn't a complete toss here. (1) ROCK ON MOE has perfected the art of sucking along and hitting the ticket; include him from the rail spot.

Race 7

(1) PANONGAHELA proved a touch outclassed last week versus some tough ones. His prior two efforts were solid pocket-sitting scores. (2) SAFE HARBOR should be close throughout and that makes him a threat. (4) SIR ZIGGY'S Z TAM has been sharp for some time now.

Race 8

(1) DOCTOR BUTCH lands the rail again off an easy score; repeats. (4) CONNERY BLUE CHIP has been sharp for an extended period of time now and he should be landing a share with these. (2) CHINA GRILL faltered on the front end last week; prior efforts were solid.

Race 9

(2) EPSEN DE VIE is trip-dependant but from this spot the veteran can receive a favorable journey. (4) LIFE UP FRONT returns locally and has been rock-solid lately. (7) THIRTY TWO RED is reunited with Stratton and he could rally for a share at a big price.

Race 10

(4) GREAT VINTAGE never fired in his last two coming from off the pace. Tonight the classy Takter trainee should be gunning to the front. (1) MACHS BEACH BOY gets needed post relief and that makes him a serious player. (3) NOB HILL HIGH is clearly feeling good again.

Race 11

(6) TWILIGHT BONFIRE is a talented four-year-old who rallied well for a small share in stakes action over at The Meadowlands. When last seen here he was flying home for second in the 2013 Messenger. (2) GLASS PRINCE gets some post relief and should go well from this spot. (3) MALAK USWAAD N is still looking for that elusive maiden 2014 win but the talent is there.

Race 12

(6) E STREET PLAN never seriously threatened on the rim last week in his local debut. Maybe he can show some improvement tonight at a price. (2) ROLLWITHITHARRY finally lands back inside and he may be the one to beat. (1) MACHAL JACKSON was second best at this level last week and he draws best here.
