Yonkers: Tuesday 11/29 Analysis


MEET STATS: 423 - 1213 / $2,315.50 

BEST BETS: 55 - 99 / $186.30

Best Bet: ST JAMES GATE (10th)

Spot Play: ROCK ICON (6th)

Race 1

(1) ANNUITY went down the road last out from the rail spot and is in line to repeat. (3) FRATERNITY was used and battled hard before giving way as the big chalk ending his streak; price will be better today. (2) AUCKLAND FLYER takes a meaningful drop in class and draws well.

Race 2

(5) COOL DESIRE arrives from The Meadows and debuts for the Nick Clegg barn; 4-year-old has made decent money this season. (4) ARABELLA J tried hard from the outside post last out and understandably tired. (2) SHE SAID looks for two straight at this basement claiming level.

Race 3

(3) UPFRONT LORNE makes his second start for new connections with a better post and he should be in line for a smoother trip. (5) MAJOR HOMER gets Bartlett back in the bike for Milici and he'll be on the move early. (1) LYONS AGAIN is an interesting Canadian shipper for Allard but he's missed a month; let's watch one.

Race 4

(1) CANACO STAR is back on the rail and should control the action. (4) AMBRO COURAGE N returns locally and was a big upset winner at this level three back. (3) HERETIC FRANCO N has become completely erratic and unreliable but one of these weeks he'll put it together and pop at a price.

Race 5

(6) ALWAYS N THE MONEY drops a notch, picks up Bartlett and may be more aggressively handled. (4) OUR JERRY LEE N gets Sears upon arrival from The Meadowlands. (3) BRINGHOME THEBLUE returns from Pocono and was MacDonald's choice.

Race 6

(4) ROCK ICON returns to the Godinez barn via claim and he's beaten much better than these in the past. (1) NATURAL LEDA draws best and is in line for a live trip. (3) SIGN TO INVERELL A paces evenly most starts and could hit the ticket from this spot.

Race 7

(9) TACO TUESDAY broke in his local and Milici debut but he gets Bartlett in the bike today and deserves another chance. (6) WHAT A PEACH ships in from Pocono and looks like a solid speed threat. (10) DEWDLE ALL DAY was MacDonald's choice and she rallied well for second last week.

Race 8

(6) GLOBAL REVOLUTION really hasn't put in a bad race locally and he can be a decent price in this open event. (8) DANCING HALL ships in and has Dube driving for Svanstedt; good angle. (4) EMERALD CHIP seems capable of landing a share from this spot.

Race 9

(1) WANNA MAKE MONEY is another Pocono shipper in fine form who should fit well in here. (9) ITS CHOCOLATE TIME arrives locally now in the Godinez barn and the gelding has had some decent efforts sprinkled in; consider. (10) MASS BALANCE just missed last week as the odds-on favorite; better price today.

Race 10

(5) ST JAMES GATE took money but broke last week in his local debut; he gets a big driver upgrade to Zeron today. (4) BEST TURBO has raced well in defeat in her last few starts and would certainly be no surprise here. (10) GIDS PASSION was second best out of the eight hole last week; a smooth second-tier trip can land him a piece.

Race 11

(7) SOUTHERN CROSS two-moved and coasted down the road last week for the Svanstedt barn; he faces a bit tougher here but seems good enough to repeat. (6) TRIUMPHANT'S CHIP was game in defeat last out and can certainly be considered. (3) MADMAN HALL went down very stubbornly last week finishing fourth in a blanket photo; Schnittker trainee is a proven commodity with these.
