Yonkers: Thursday 4/2 Analysis


MEET STATS: 42 - 274 / $329.10  BEST BETS: 3 - 23 / $14.10

Best Bet: MACH THIS WAY (12th)

Spot Play: AZOREANSAILOR (5th)


Race 1

(1) SCOTTY MACH N showed signs of life in his last two trips. Gelding might be able to handle these from the fence. (6) SEMALU EXPRESS put in a mild rally last out. (2) BABES I SCOOT gets post relief.

Race 2

(4) NUTMEGS DESIRE posted two good efforts and that makes this pacing miss a big threat in here. (6) RUNAWAY ROSE is better than her latest. (3) LITTLE MERMAID N could grab a share of the purse.

Race 3

(4) ALWAYS LOVE ME was quite sharp getting the job done last week and two straight is clearly not out of the question. (1) MICHELLES IDEA moves to the rail slot and that should help her cause. (2) SHELIKESITHERWAY could be right in the mix.

Race 4

This might be a better spot for (1) LUCKY HOUSE to return to his winning ways. (3) KEEMOSABE was caught at the wire for win honors last time out. (4) HEFTY LEFTY showed fine speed at Freehold in his most recent try.

Race 5

(3) AZOREANSAILOR seems to have a fondness for second money. Gelding has the early zip to take these all the way for glory. (5) ON THE BRINK is on the drop-down and has good speed; threat. (2) JOLLY JUBITER took the pocket route home to victory last time out.

Race 6

(7) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY was used up in the early stages in her recent outing. She can get back into the swing of things with a fine-timed drive from Dube. (3) MCEVER has wheeled off two straight victories. (1) FLYING MOCHA gets the rail slot and she is knocking at the door.

Race 7

(6) CRIMSON CRUISER was sent down the road in his first try at Yonkers this year. Gelding appears to be fit and ready to take another despite the rise in class. (4) ROCKAVELLIAN is a sharp gelding that is a serious threat in here. (3) WINTER BLUES just got up for the victory last time around.

Race 8

(1) DIGITAL Z TAM got the job done in fine fashion last week. 11-year-old stays in the same company and has the pole position; the pick. (3) DRUMFIRE A has hit the board in his last four tries. (6) LUCKY MAN could grab a share.

Race 9

(5) SUMMER SNOW made a middle move before hanging it up in the stretch drive last out at the Big M. Pacing mare is very capable of turning things around on the half-mile oval. (1) I DO IT MYSELF has the rail and fits with these. (2) ITSTIMEFORMETOFLY will be closing in the final strides.

Race 10

(4) JUST THAT rallied mildly in his latest. Gelding can mow these down at his best. (3) CLEM should do much better from the 3-hole. (7) CASHENDASH HANOVER went down the road last out for all the glory.

Race 11

(6) FOX VALLEY HERMIA was over her head last time out, now she is back with her friends; big threat. (4) GROUNDED should be right square in the mix. (1) HER OWN LAND could contend from the rail slot.

Race 12

(3) MACH THIS WAY gets class relief and good to see Brennan stays on board this pacing mare; ready for action. (5) HOOSIER CHATTER was sharp in victory last time out. (6) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC will be closing late.
