Yonkers: Tuesday 2/23 Analysis


MEET STATS: 38 - 129 / $231.00

BEST BETS: 5 - 11 / $18.00


Spot Play: MAGNUM KOSMOS (10th)


Race 1

(5) GREYSTONE CASH has been the victim of some tough trips since dropping to this reduced level and the veteran is worth a look in this suspect field. (7) LETS ROCK TOGETHER returns from the Meadowlands and should go well despite the poor post. (4) OR is always a threat but he really never fired last out when he should have.

Race 2

(3) DOUBLEDAY hasn't put in a bad effort in ages and the value should be there in this wide-open event. (5) TAPIT was a good second in last week's added-distance event. (2) EL DIABLO HALL has some speed and a decent inside post.

Race 3

(5) DULL ROAR gets needed class relief in his local return and he should be aggressively handled. (3) TENDTOWIN ships from Woodbine for Allard and should be a player at first asking. (2) BATTLE CALL lands another good post and can be in line for a smoother trip.

Race 4

(2) MAJOR BUBBLES N drops in class again in his third U.S. start and seeing how these recent Down-Under shippers have been performing it's impossible not to include this one. (3) INTREPID HALL picks up Brennan today and seems capable of better. (5) POACHER N overcame an early break last out and finished with some pace; class drop should help his cause.

Race 5

(6) PHAMILY APPLE picks up the catch-driving Kakaley again for his local return and that's been a good angle for this barn; consider if the price is right. (3) PRINCE ALAND looks like the one to beat off his easy win last out at Freehold but he may be overbet. (2) PLAY THE FIELD squandered a live trip last out but it was an improved effort.

Race 6

(6) EVERY INTENTION raced well in his local debut upon joining the Allard barn; gelding looks like a good fit with these. (7) SHANE ADAM failed at five cents on the dollar last out; clearly you will be getting a better price today. (2) TOUCH OF LUCK needed his last start and can show more.

Race 7

(5) KEYSTONE BODACIOUS didn't fire with a ton of trot last out but did rally for second; prior start was solid and he can be followed again from this spot with suspect speed inside of him. (2) STAYIN STRONG has raced well in two starts for Abbatiello. (1) INSOMNIAC is tough to endorse at this added distance considering he was walking across the finish line last week.

Race 8

(4) DOMINUS HANOVER was a dominating winner last out and faces nothing special here. (10) INUKCHUK CHUCK never got close from a tough spot last out but was a winner start prior. (8) LE TISSIER gets an impossible-to-ignore driver change to Sears.

Race 9

(10) SURFACE TENSION upset right off the bench last out for Garcia-Herrera and he can repeat here at what may be decent value again. (1) ALEXANDER LUKAS was a solid second two back versus better. (3) SUMMER SCENT has been trotting evenly of late for a barn that finally had a winner the other night.

Race 10

(6) MAGNUM KOSMOS went wire-to-wire last week and has been behaving himself recently with Simons controlling; capable of repeating. (1) BLUEBIRD KIDSQUEEN was second best last week from an inside spot; rated as highly today. (5) SHOEMAKER will attract plenty of attention again at the windows but he's got to prove something to me first.

Race 11

I thought (5) JUSTA REBEL was a very curious claim considering the veteran had looked awful on paper but he's been very good in two starts for these new connections. (1) LIGHTNING STORM was second best last out and should go well from this spot. (7) COME AND TELL PAP gets an upgrade in the bike and is worth considering at a price.

Race 12

(1) WILD AGAIN has been very good in three starts since joining Team Buter and he will likely offer a better price than (2) SANTANNA STAR. The latter has looked good at The Meadowlands for Blackler and looms a big threat here. (7) FRANKANDJOANNE picks up the leading driver but has much to do from out here; use underneath.
