Best Bet: MY IDEAL HANOVER (1st)

Spot Play: PERFECT PITCH (9th)

 

Race 1

(1) MY IDEAL HANOVER is on a roll scoring her second straight victory; the hat trick is not out of the question. (2) NUTMEGS DESIRE is knocking at the door based on his last two tries; contender. (5) CASE SOLVED has good early zip to make some serious noise; watch out.

Race 2

(5) NAUTICA HANOVER has put in some nice efforts and should be ready to put her best foot forward. (4) PATS PARADISE makes her return to Yonkers where she was a solid third on July 20th; threat. (1) ROLL WITH JOSIE should do much better from the fence; maybe.

Race 3

(7) LEGAL LITIGATOR did not fire his best at Saratoga last out; he's back at Yonkers and could get the job done with a favorable trip. (2) COOL LIKE FIRE needs a better trip to contend in here; worth a play. (1) OUTA MY HEAD gets post relief and that could help his cause.

Race 4

(5) COSMICPEDIA Very sharp 7-year-old is seeking his 9th victory of the year; should keep on his winning ways down the road. (2) LONG FIGHT HANOVER has put in two good tries that puts him right in the hunt. (3) BLUE STRIKE put in a mild bid to grab the show spot last time out; contender.

Race 5

(2) NO CLOUDS BLUECHIP Pacing miss is back at the Hilltop where she got the job done on July 20; all systems go for her fourth score of the year. (1A & 1) ENCORE DEO & DIME A DANCE Burke trained entry will try to knock off the choice; possible.

Race 6

(2) FREEZE OUT could take this with a complete meltdown of the early leaders. (5) VINO AND FORMAGGIO was sent down the road last out at Vernon to grab the victory; big threat again. (6) TIME ON MY HANDS has good speed; not out of this.

Race 7

(3) SOFT IDEA has been on the board in all of her starts; ready to boss this group. (4) LYRA has pulled off four straight victories and will be the main danger. (1) ROLLING GOING GONE will be closing in the final strides.

Race 8

(4) DEREK DELIGHT Pacing mare was sharp last out; figures to take this group to task for all the cash. (1) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC gets class & post relief; threat. (3) LOVINEVERYMINUTE Plainridge invader could have a say in the outcome.

Race 9

(1) PERFECT PITCH Pocono shipper has won her last two in a row; moves to Yonkers and Sears gets the call; the pick. (3) BAHAMA BLUE faced open foes in her latest; could make some noise against these. (2) GRACE SEELSTER did not fire at odds-on last out but is capable of bouncing back; maybe.

Race 10

(2) DUKES UP moves to the two slot and that might be what he needs to return to the winner's circle. (6) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT can be quite dangerous if he returns to his August 10th trip. (4) FITZS Z TAM raced evenly in his latest; could be a factor in here.

Race 11

(6) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER Gelding could mow these down if he goes back to his August 20 start; worth a shot. (4) IM BLUE TOO was nailed for win honors last out; has speed and is a big threat. (3) URBANA BAYAMA moves down in class and the 3-hole can put him right in the mix.

Race 12

(5) LITTLE MISS HENRY This might be a good spot for this mare to make her return to the winner's circle; threat at her best. (3) I DO IT MYSELF gets class relief and that could make this gal a big player in here. (4) ABS TO ENVY Qualifier at Freehold was good enough for her return to the races; beware.

Race 6 Yonkers: Interesting. 10 minutes to post. 2, Freeze Out is the longest shot in the morning line at 7/1. She is also the longest shot in the pick 4. However, she is the favorite in the pick 3? Do we think someone knows something that they are not sharing with the public? Are the judges interested in this? Probably not. We'll know in a few minutes what the story is.

Isn't it amazing when "My Ideal Hanover" drops anchor at 1/5 in the first at Yonkers and finishes 30 lengths behind the field? I know, it must have been the new murphy blind. It will be more amazing when she wires the field from the 8 post next week. How can this stuff go on and on and no one cares or even brings it up?
