Yonkers: Thursday 6/30 Analysis


Race 7 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

MEET STATS: 208 - 605 / $1125.50  BEST BETS: 28 - 51 / $100.40


Best Bet: TOBER (11th)

Spot Play: RD IOU (4th)

Race 1

(5) AUTOMATIC SLIMS stopped on the front end last out but Bartlett sticks and the Banca trainee is capable of rebounding. (1) MUSTANG MACH N, the former $40K claimer, has found a home at this basement level but he still can't seem to win. (4) NABBER AGAIN showed improvement last out for Milici.

Race 2

(6) CLASSY LANE ROSE drops, picks up Zeron and has been competitive with better than these. (1) VILLAGE JESSICA is a serious speed threat from this spot. (3) TRY N KEEP UP has Bartlett and should be close up throughout.

Race 3

(4) STRINGS faltered on the front end last out but this classy mare is more than capable and she did beat much better four back. (1) CANACO STAR took a month off but qualified well; draws best. (2) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM returns locally and lands inside; watch for the early Lachance money to see if she's live.

Race 4

(1) RD IOU steps up to face better off a win and this barn has been going well with their veterans. (5) ART IDEAL finished decently last out, adds Dube and is a big threat. (2) SUMMER SNOW is always dangerous when in striking range.

Race 5

(6) DELCO ROCKNROLL had finishing pace despite a hanging headpole last week; he picks up Dube tonight and will likely be the best price of the contenders. (4) SAINT WILLIAM A is still competitive for Stalbaum and he looks for three straight. (3) GOKUDO HANOVER seems capable of better.

Race 6

(1) MOTOR SHARK shows a down-the-road effort at Monticello three back in a quick time; a similar effort may be good enough to take this. (6) BETTOR REASON N gets needed class relief and looms a big threat. (7) HANDS OFF FRANK showed more when switched to the Banca barn.

Race 7

(2) ELRAMA N arrives back at Yonkers and is reunited with a familiar driver in Bartlett from a good post; top billing. (3) ARTIST NIGHT has faced much better than these in the past and is eligible for improvement. (4) MAINLAND KEY N went evenly last week with Abbatiello in the bike and he has plenty of back class.

Race 8

(3) STOMPIN TOM CREEK gets needed post relief and Brennan can be on the move early from this spot. (1) CARD SHOCK returns locally with the best post and has always seemed to have the ability. (2) DOJEA SOLO faces better tonight but last week's second place effort was super.

Race 9

(1) MC DYNAMITE rarely puts in a bad effort and is always a late threat when close enough, which may be the case from this spot. (3) TWIN B FAMOUS debuts for Allard via claim and the change in scenery could help him out. (5) SHADY CITY has had his moments here in the past for Stalbaum.

Race 10

(2) HI HO STEVERINO had some bad luck last out which cost him but he's more than capable with this type and hopefully Bartlett can protect early position. (1) ROETHBLISSBERGER enters the Allard barn while in raging form. (4) PIECE OF THE ROCK needs a smoother trip than last week for his best chance.

Race 11

(4) TOBER returns to Bartlett and is better than these. (3) SWISHNFLICK was very game in defeat last week and can be on the move early again. (1) LATOKA lands yet another inside post and is usually good for a minor share.

Race 12

(6) BABY REMIND ME has blast-off early speed and Brent Holland likes to employ those tactics; worth a shot if the price is right. (2) GEISHA GIRL N returns to Dube and seems more than capable. (7) JUNGLE GENIE N gets Bartlett in the bike for Vallee; only problem here in the post.
