Race 2

(1) AEQUITAS returns to Yonkers where this guy has done his best running; the one to hold off. (4) ONE MORE KID broke at the start but made a great recovery for win honors; threat again. (6) WESTERN CREDIT was second best in his last try at 47-1; watch out.

Race 3

(2) CAPTAIN KUBOTA was a sharp second two trips ago; strong factor. (4) ACID RAIN Speedy pacer will be the one to catch. (7) HYD DAT SHOOTER put in an even finish last time around; don't overlook.

Race 4

(2) PAN OF OUTSIDERS Quite sharp last out for the placing; good chance he'll move forward. (1) SAULSBROOK ASTROBO Gelding showed good pace for the second spot recently; contender. (6) BEAT OF NY was flying down the lane to get the job done last out; consider with Brennan at the helm.

Race 5

(1) PILGRIMS ALL IN was on the move but made a bad break in the stretch drive last out; turnaround is imminent. (8) IM THE CASH MAN Very consistent trotter can be right there from the 8-hole; maybe. (4) TSMLIL ORPHAN ANDY could land a share of the pie.

Race 6

(5) DASHPEDIA did not get the right trip last out but this gelding fits well with these; could get it done at his best. (1) PRONOLOGY Z TAM gets class and post relief; big threat. (4) BLUES ROCKET MAN might be able to move forward off his last try.

Race 7

Two strong efforts from (4) SIR MICHIGAN Z TAM puts this guy on the win list for me; using. (1) RALBAR retains the rail slot off his tough loss last out. (2) BIGRISK Given the best draw from his last two trips, he can be right there.

Race 8

(3) PREDATOR DVM Easy score at the Meadowlands last time around, so this guy is back at Yonkers where he will need to time the rally to perfection; respect. (5) BLACK HAT was nailed last out for win honors; endorse as a serious win candidate. (2) FUZZYLEGSANDALL got the job done via the pocket route; not out of this.

Race 9

(4) TALKING BLUES was the boss down the road for all the glory last out and this gelding is fit and ready to make it two straight. (2) CHARGER BLUE CHIP Gelding needs a better trip than last to contend with these. (3) ROCKY MOUNTAIN GUY gets post relief.

Race 10

(2) DESPERATION got an education lesson at the Hilltop last out and commands respect based on connections alone; worth a closer look. (5) COURAGEOUS CAT put a nice late rally for the show spot recently; quite dangerous. (1) ONE WARRAWEE retains the rail slot and Kakaley stays aboard; watch out.

Race 11

(3) BAY ROCK got his feet wet last out on the half-mile oval and was a strong second; could have plenty of upside potential; threat. (1) RENEWAL NOTICE gets the best of draw and this gelding has good late kick; factor in here. (7) EXPRESS JUSTICE Trotting mare is knocking at the door; she will making some noise through the lane.

Race 12

(2) KEYSTONE RAPTOR moves to the two slot and that could be what he needs to boss these; commands respect with Brennan at the controls. (5) TRIPLE MAJOR was a very game second in his last try; good to see Sears stay aboard; big threat. (1) DRAGON RIDGE Maybe the 1-hole could put this guy in the mix.
