Yonkers: Sunday 11/22 Analysis


MEET STATS: 368 - 1108 / $2,039.80  BEST BETS: 54 - 89 / $189.10

Best Bet: LUMINOSITY (7th)

Spot Play: MUGSHOT JESS (3rd)


Race 1

(8) CLEMENTINE DREAM was a solid winner last week versus similar in a quick time; the post hurts today but she's worth another play. (12) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE has raced much better in his last two. (2) AUSPICIOUS HANOVER returns locally and seems to stack up well class-wise but he did break in his last Yonkers start a few months ago.

Race 2

(10) ZOOMING gave it a good try as expected last week but tired; the drop from the Open ranks can help his cause. (1) NOT AFRAID is back in winning form for Takter and is clearly the one to fear. (6) CRAZY ABOUT PAT was second best last week to the repeating Red Hot Herbie and Sears sticks with him.

Race 3

(3) MUGSHOT JESS made multiple moves then was shuffled last out; forgive that effort and give the classy gelding another chance. (10) I C CAVIAR rallied well from a tough spot last out. (9) SCOTTISH CROSS folded badly on the front end in last after a series of sharp efforts; Allard trainee will have to be on the move early from the second tier for her best chance.

Race 4

I gave (5) SKATES N PLATES a try last week from the eight hole and he gave it a try before getting shuffled and quitting; he should be an attractive price again today and is worth another look. (6) ZORGWIJK NOVA can be forwardly placed off the gate again with Bartlett. (1) EXTRACURRICULAR has never been one of my favorites but he does drop in class and lands inside.

Race 5

(5) ZOEY DE VIE was forced to move early to get close to the well-rated frontrunner, dug in decently but was outfinished. Gelding can move forward off that effort. (4) CAMBRIDGE hit the ticket two back from a similar spot; consider. (10) WATKINS returns locally off a decent effort at The Meadowlands and Bartlett drives again.

Race 6

(1) TAC'S DELIGHT put in a monster effort last week just missing late; as long as he behaves himself he can dominate here. (10) HOT SUMMER KNIGHT went evenly last out and was a good second two back; consider. (2) ULTIMATE WINNER ships out East to chase better money after being a winning machine at Northfield; I have to see one first.

Race 7

(8) LUMINOSITY will have his nose on the gate today and that should be all the Burke trainee needs to start a new winning streak. (3) SUMATRA has been no worse than third in his last eight races. (6) DOT DOT DOT DASH earns a trip to the Open ranks based on last week's stellar victory and Kakaley gets the drive again.

Race 8

(2) TOUCH AND GO returns from Philly with a post edge on his main rivals and that may be enough to get him over the top. (3) SODY'S MOONSHINE is always a force at this level and is tough to leave off the ticket. (4) NABBER AGAIN gets Brennan in the bike today and will be forwardly placed.

Race 9

(6) URBANA BAYAMA had no chance last week but his prior efforts were stellar and he can offer some value today. (2) GOBAN gets some needed class relief. (1) V I P BAYAMA gets some needed post relief.

Race 10

(1) UF ROCKIN DRAGON has been solid in his last two and despite facing better today he can trip out from this spot. (4) STEVENSVILLE returns to Stratton, gets some post relief and looks like a big player. (2) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS draws well again and will be close up throughout; consider for a minor share.

Race 11

(3) FOOL ME ONCE was actually very good last week and with the decent post draw the Alagna trainee can get over the top. (1) IN COMMANDO has also been sharp and draws best. (4) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N steps up in class today and he's been live in his last two.

Race 12

(4) SKY IS THE LIMIT powered home from nowhere last week to snap second versus better; Vallee trainee has been a solid money-maker all year and he should only be a smooth trip away from glory in the finale. (2) FRANKIES DRAGON gets needed post relief off a decent try and Sears drives. (1) REGULUS N returns locally, draws best and certainly knows his way around this oval.
