Yonkers: Thursday 5/19 Analysis


Race 7 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

MEET STATS: 170 - 488 / $884.70  BEST BETS: 22 - 41 / $81.60


Best Bet: HIDDEN IDENTITY (2nd)   

Spot Play: MASSIVE ATTACK A (8th)

Race 1

(6) SUMMER SNOW returns to the Kokinos barn, where she's had plenty of success; worth a flyer despite the missed time and outside post. (2) AMERICAN ALIVE looks for two straight and is an obvious threat. (3) RAVENNA STAR returns locally to face softer.

Race 2

(1) HIDDEN IDENTITY was in against some tough ones in his last two and failed to seriously threaten; the move inside and the return to Sears should be enough to get it done as the chalk. (3) JUSTICE JET was second best two back from a similar spot. (4) A LIST LINDY did well to hold for a share last week off a long trip.

Race 3

(1) SECOND WIND N went a bizarre trip last week and burned money in the process; he should be able to stalk here and can get by late. (4) ROCK OUT went a quick mile on the front end last week and can certainly repeat. (3) NORTHVIEW PUNTER N is back up in class looking to keep his good form going.

Race 4

(4) MISS MACHQUEEN is not a prolific winner but this is a very questionable field and the Auciello barn has had some live ones recently. (7) GOSSESS'S ROSA needs to fire from the gate for her best chance. (6) CAM FUNNY doesn't have much in the way of form but she should fit decently with these.

Race 5

(4) MONTREAL PHIL debuts for Allard off the claim and has a ton of back class. (1) RAMPAGE JACKSON is another classy veteran who has found a home at this level. (3) DRIVE 'EM COWBOY was claimed by Banca last out and has been in good form but he's got the top two tough ones to contend with.

Race 6

(5) MY IDEAL HANOVER has been very sharp in her last two for the Robertson barn and she may offer some value from this spot. (4) ELISAVETA N faces a bit softer and should be ready to roll for Bamond. (6) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY will be a speed threat even from this outside post.

Race 7

(5) KAITLYN RAE scored right off the bench at this reduced level and the Allard trainee seems sharp enough to take another. (3) ANEGADA raced decently in her debut for Banca and she can build off that effort. (7) IT'S A MIRCALE is better than she's been showing and she will offer a big price; consider her for a share.

Race 8

(2) MASSIVE ATTACK A didn't tire all that badly last out chasing uncovered at 38/1; import can be tighter off that effort. (5) HER OWN LAND has raced well since joining the Lance Hudson barn and Bartlett could be looking to fire from the gate. (1) ENVIOUS HANOVER has done nothing in recent weeks versus better and she could wake up from this spot.

Race 9

(2) STATION THREEOHSIX has been much, much better of late and it looks like he's regained his confidence while facing softer. (1) STOMPIN TOM CREEK draws best again and is in line for a live trip. (6) REAL FLIGHT has been razor-sharp for Milici.

Race 10

(4) STONEBRIDGE TONIC has been super since the Allard claim and he can take another. (1) ARI ALLSTAR drops in class off two dull efforts and the move inside will help his cause. (2) TWIN B FAMOUS blew up the board last out at Philly and he had some good efforts locally a few starts back.

Race 11

(5) UNDERCOVER STRIKE is the King of this optional 30K claiming class until proven otherwise; how come he doesn't get claimed? (1) SUPER MANNING is back in form now and was second best to the top choice last week. (3) ZORGWIJK NOVA was third best in the same race and she may be forwardly placed again.

Race 12

(7) BABY REMIND ME has talent and a good burst of speed but is also very erratic; give her a swing switching to the Allard barn. (1) LISPATTY blasted down the road last week; I'm sure the strategy will be the same tonight. (3) GEISHA GIRL N qualified sharply at Freehold and could be ready off the bench.
