Yonkers: Thursday 5/5 Analysis


Race 7 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

MEET STATS: 144 - 418 / $758.70

BEST BETS: 19 - 35 / $65.30


Best Bet: CANACO STAR (1st)

Spot Play: CLASSY LANE ROSE (11th)

Race 1

(3) CANACO STAR took a conservative route last week and finished with plenty of pace once clear; Banca trainee drops to the winning level tonight. (2) MY IDEAL HANOVER had a brutal trip last week off the claim but didn't stop that badly; post relief now.  (1) MISS ALI MACH N debuts for new connections and the aggressive A. Nap will have her closer.

Race 2

(1) VICTORIA MAY N was an odds-on winner at Freehold two back and isn't facing that much tougher here. (2) CARLOTA BLUE CHIP returns locally and should be better than she's showing. (3) HUSTLEONHOME could be a speed threat.

Race 3

(6) RAMPAGE JACKSON drops back to the basement for live connections and the classy vet is clearly the one to catch. (2) JC KINGDOM has been camera-shy all season but it's tough to not see him in the picture from this spot. (1) MOVEOUTOFMYWAY returns from an extended vacation and has raced well with much better in the past; likely needs a start, however.

Race 4

(6) JETS ARE ON has been facing better in all recent with limited success; mare looks like she's worth a play in this very suspect field. (1) MISS MACHQUEEN lands inside again and should be able to hold her ground early. (4) CLARA BEA failed on the front end in her debut for Allard; proceed with caution.

Race 5

(4) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY got pretty much screwed last week when a rival left in front of her and stalled; mare should have a clear path to the lead tonight. (2) MY TALLIA IDEAL can be a bit erratic but the talent is there and she's probably the one to beat. (6) ROYAL KNOCKOUT closed well last week at a price and she's got back class.

Race 6

(2) CAVIART SCARLETT flattened from the pocket last out chasing a fast pace; give her a chance to rebound. (7) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP exploded from the pocket last out; can Brennan get her forwardly placed from this spot? If so, she will be tough. (1) HEY KOBE faltered last week in that strange race; draws best again.

Race 7

(2) A LIST LINDY broke in the SOA series final but was super her three starts prior. She may be close enough to grind down (3) HIDDEN IDENTITY for the upset. The latter looks for five straight but he does get a new pilot tonight and he doesn't have to win every week. (6) SUPER MANNING has loads of back class but needs to show more.

Race 8

(3) STOMPIN TOM CREEK is up in class off the Allard claim and he's in great form now; he may be the best price of the contenders. (6) ROETHBLISSBERGER has done nothing wrong in his last handful of starts; Bartlett's choice. (1) REAL FLIGHT is up in class looking for another.

Race 9

(2) STONEBRIDGE TONIC has been awesome in his two starts for Allard and he looks primed to take another. (4) HARDTS OR BETTOR drops in class looking for a wakeup call; threat. (1) REGULUS N is one I've been following since he returned to the Tritton barn and I keep waiting for him to show more.

Race 10

(3) UNDERCOVER STRIKE is in for the tag again and clearly priced to sell; are there any takers tonight?; Milici trainee will be a short price again. (2) JUSTICE JET returns locally where he hit the ticket in his last two. (1) LATOKA draws best and clearly fits with this type.

Race 11

(4) CLASSY LANE ROSE returns to Napolitano, who guided this mare to a pocket-rocket score two back. (1) IDEAL NUGGETS gets some class relief shipping in and I guess she's the one to beat. (2) THE RIGHT MOVE tripped out to win last week; will be close up again.
