Best Bet: MYSTICAL ESCAPADE (4th)     Spot Play: JUSTA REBEL (9th)

Race 1

(3) TEVENAY HALL flashed good speed in his previous trip. 11-year-old is very capable of getting back in the grove of things. (6) TATOOS N SCARS put in a nice score last time out but will have to make it a two-peat from the six-hole. (2) IM CONFIDENT was second best in his latest; could contend with these.

Race 2

(2) ALTERNAT THURSDAYS took the pocket route home to victory last week and this trotter could make it two straight despite the rise in condition. (5) GET PACKIN was nailed by the top pick and this guy will try to turn the tables on that rival. (3) RAMBLIN RICK raced evenly against some of these recently to land the third spot; don't overlook.

Race 3

(4) BUCK STOPS HERE draws much better in this event and with the perfect trip, this guy can boss these. (3) PAY TRIBUTE is back at Yonkers where he has done his best racing. (1) MAKE A BUNDLE N was nailed for win honors last week; watch out.

Race 4

(3) MYSTICAL ESCAPADE posted an easy victory recently and a repeat effort is clearly not out of the question. (6) ON THE TAB has showed good early trot in his last two tries. (5) NEW YORK MUSCLE is better than his last try.

Race 5

(2) DAWGS BUDDY might be in a softer spot and could take this at her best. (1) LITTLE MERMAID N moves to the fence where she got the job done down the road two trips ago. (6) PATSYS LUCK & LADYBONES complete the trifecta & superfecta respectably.

Race 6

(3) CYCLONE NIGHT N fits with these and the three-hole should help her chances if she can get a nice trip to work with. (1) MARIE THE ARTIST was caught at the wire for the victory last week; could atone from the fence. (7) DENYITTOTHEEND has tactical speed and the outside slot should not hurt.

Race 7

(5) CRAZY LUV BUG was quite sharp in her last three trips to the post and she can go back to her winning ways against these tonight. (3) SIR LBS Z TAM could contend with a better trip. (4) FLYING MOCHA got the job done via the pocket route last week.

Race 8

(8) ACTIVATOR is knocking at the door but will have to do his best from the 8 post; quite possible. (6) CHINA KING has scored in his last three and will once again be the main danger. (2) MAJOR STONE rallied strongly for the place spot recently; watch out.

Race 9

(2) JUSTA REBEL put in an even trip in his last one and this trotter could mow these down with a meltdown of the early leaders. (6) IDLE TIME held the placing last week; makes this guy a contender. (1) FIRE IN THE CELL closed well to nail down the second spot last time out.

Race 10

(2) ABOMINABLE SNOWPAN gets serious post relief and his speed could put this guy back in the winner's circle tonight. (4) SHOTGUN A is better than his last effort. (8) FLOWMASTER is off a good qualifier here but will have to contend with post 8; maybe.

Race 11

(5) CANT STOP ME NOW made a brief trip to Philly but is now back at Yonkers where she just held on for the victory three starts back; major player in here. (3) HAYWORTH BLUE CHIP posted two easy scores upstate; right in the mix with these. (4) LATE FLYIN N gets post relief to help her chances against this group.
