Best Bet: RAMPAGE JACKSON (1st)

Spot Play: SHARK FANTASY (6th)

Race 1

Will have to say that (6) RAPMAGE JACKSON is the speed of the speed and is seeking his fourth straight victory; all systems go. (1) MONTEZUMA BLUECHIP put in an even finish to land the third spot in his latest. (7) ELECTRIC CHAPEL N could land a share of the purse.

Race 2

(4) AFTER ALIMONY has put in two sharp efforts and with a well rated drive, this 6-year-old can make tonight a winning one. (2) NIPPY W HANOVER led most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank and lasted for show money last time out. (1) CRUISINWITHMYBABY should fare much better from the rail.

Race 3

(6) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY cruised to an easy victory in her last start and this mare is in solid form. With another fine performance, the rest will have to settle for place money. (1) MY TALLIA IDEAL moves to the rail and that could help her cause. (2) SCOOTIN FOR JOY was seeking a down the road score but was nailed in the final strides last out.

Race 4

(3) BABY REMIND ME seems to be heading in the right direction, with a very good effort last time out for the place spot; figures to boss these at her best. (6) PLAYAWAY N was sitting in the pocket most of the way on route to an easy score at Philly recently. (2) I DO IT MYSELF gets Brennan and moves to the 2-hole, so she could make some noise.

Race 5

Since moving to Yonkers, (4) DELCO ROCKNROLL has been knocking at the door based on his last three starts; capable of getting the job done with a favorable trip. (2) WHAT I BELIEVE made a move at the half-mile pole to the front, but had nothing left in the stretch drive at Pocono last out. (1) THE ROCK ships in from Canada and was a game second at Grand River in his last trip to the post.

Race 6

(4) SHARK FANTASY did not have the best of trips in his latest. However, this gelding knows how to get the job done at Yonkers, so trainer Banca calls on Brennan to try to get this 6-year-old back to the winner's circle. (2) STAY UP LATE put in a nice rally for the third spot in his last try. (1) SEA STAR has tactical speed and the rail spot should put him right in the mix.

Race 7

(2) IT'S A GOOD THING is a very sharp 10-year-old gelding that has been in the exacta in his last four starts and has every right to keep on his winning ways against these. (3) REGULUS N will need a favorable trip to contend with this group but he is capable. (1) SHADIOS was sent down the road at Philly last time out for all the glory.

Race 8

(3) LITTLE JOKE was on the engine and led every step of the way for the victory last time out. Mare is in fine form, so two straight is not out of the question. (1) ROYAL KNOCKOUT Meadowlands invader was a game second missing the score by three-quarters of a length. (2) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N gets post relief and could have a say in the outcome.

Race 9

(1) BUBBIE BOY moves down the ladder, has the pole position, and it is good to see Brennan keeping the faith; ready to score. (3) ROETHBLISSBERGER has scored in his last two starts and figures to be making some serious noise again. (2) COLONIAL ROAD's last start was not so good, so he needs to revert to his May 30th try to contend in here.

Race 10

(2) STONEBRIDGE TONIC seems to do much better from the 2-hole and clearly this 9-year-old pro fits in here; gets the call. (5) PIECE OF THE ROCK got the job done against lesser company in his last try. (4) JDS CALEB MAN was sent down the road last time out for all the marbles.

Race 11

(3) ZORGWIJK NOVA is on the drop-down and gets a cozy post to work with, so trotting mare can take this at her best. (2) GEORGINA CORNER posted a solid effort last out against open foes at Plaiinrirge, making it two straight victories there. Now she is back at Yonkers and Sears has the assignment. (1) LATOKA retains the rail and is knocking at the door based on her last outing.

Race 12

(3) GEISHA GIRL N did not race badly at Philly in her last two tries and now the pacing mare is back at Yonkers where she has done her best racing; can be the boss over this group with a well rated drive from Mr. Brennan. (4) KAITLYN RAE took the pocket route home to victory in her latest and she does have a fondness for the hilltop. (2) BROWN BRINNY was dull in her Philly finale, however this mare should do much better in her return to Yonkers from the 2-hole.
