Race 2

(2) ROCKETPEDIA just got up for win honors last time around. Repeat effort is not out of the question. (5) FLAMING YANKEE raced evenly in his previous trip. (1) CIAO BELLA retains the fence and she is not out of this.

Race 3

(3) WILD DREAM got a little tired in the stretch drive last out, but all systems will be on 'go' against these. (2) I DO IT MYSELF is back at Yonkers where she was a game second two starts ago. (5) CS KENTUCKY could grab a share of the purse.

Race 4

(4) NORA LEE is sharp now. Pacing miss will try to get it done tonight if the trip is right. (1) TEXAS CAVIAR should a big factor from the fence. (3) LITTLE MERMAID N posted an even finish last time out. Watch out with Bartlett back aboard.

Race 5

(1) ANTHONYSKYWALKER is knocking at the door. Ready to roll from the rail slot. (5) JS MISS LINDA got the job done last out wire to wire; threat again. (3) ALTERNAT THURSDAYS gets class relief; don't overlook.

Race 6

(1) RUB THING makes her 2014 debut at Yonkers and the rail slot can help her chances, plus good to see Brennan at the controls. Pocono invader (3) SWEET BET moves down a notch in class; dangerous. (2) MY QP DOLL gets post relief; maybe.

Race 7

(2) BLUE STRIKE leaves the 8-hole for the two slot. Capable of being the boss over this group. (3) RED CARPET DUDE put in a mild rally for the show spot recently. (7) DUTCH RICHMAN just missed the score in his latest.

Race 8

(6) BAD FEELING was second best in her last try. Can revert back to her winning ways with Brennan on the return call. (4) FLYING MOCHA showed life in her last try and the drop can help this gal; main danger. (2) LEGERDEPAN should do much better from the two-hole; not out of this.

Race 9

(3) MY IDEAL gets the best of the draw and Bartlett stays. Pacing miss can be ready to take this at her best. (2) SPECIAL KIM drops a notch in class; threat. (5) MCEVER rallied strongly last out for the victory against lesser.

Race 10

Will give (6) FUZZYLEGSANDALL a shot to return to his old self. (1) MIAS BOLD MANEUVER was second best in his latest; main danger. (2) AMILLIONPENNIES should do better from the two slot.

Race 11

(5) MINDALES SMILE put in an even finish recently. Good to see Kakaley keeps the faith with this gal; worth a look. (1) PASSION R VIRGINIE gets serious post relief. The deserving favorite. (3) ALL ABOUT KISSES got the job done last out down the road against lesser company.

Race 12

(1) ITS A MIRACLE broke at the start but made a great recovery to grab the place spot. She can boss these at her best from the rail. (7) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM moves down in class, but will post 7 hurt her chances? (5) PAINTS HALL moves up the ladder off five straight victories. Don't count her out of this.
