Yonkers: Tuesday 4/26 Analysis


MEET STATS: 132 - 393 / $712.80

BEST BETS: 17 - 33 / $60.00

Best Bet: MADMAN HALL (9th)

Spot Play: REGULUS N (12th)

Race 1

(3) CEE PEE PANIC has hinted at decent ability since switching to the Sager barn and he returns to Sears with a good post. (5) K SLATER returns locally at a reduced level and he may be the one to beat. (1) ALL FIRED UP returns to Yonkers and fits well with these.

Race 2

(1) CRAZYCAT has behaved himself recently and has raced well, including last week's easy front end score. If he stays trotting he wins. (4) THE POWER OF MANY has shown nothing since moving to the Andrew Harris barn; maybe the change in scenery will help. (6) BUZZEN GARLAND qualified effectively.

Race 3

(2) DAVID THE SAINT seemed to regain his stride over at The Meadowlands and he returns at a reduced level. (4) MATT MAJOR was in against some tough ones last out but his prior start was good; threat. (1) BOOGIEWOOGIEBRIAN lacks the class of others but he's got some speed and the best post.

Race 4

In a tough-to-figure race with no standouts (4) PARTY ON THE RIVER may have upset potential. Trotter really had no chance from outside posts in his last two but rallied for a minor share. He may be close enough to strike from this spot. (1) COVERT OPERATIVE picks up Sears and his effort from two back is enough to win this. (7) OH MY MAGIC has tailed off recently but he does have some speed at his disposal.

Race 5

(5) MAESTRO BLUE CHIP has breezed through this series as tons the best and he'll be the odds-on favorite again to win it all. (1) LATOKA has legitimate talent and could put a scare into the favorite from this spot. (1A) A LIST LINDY is the second half of a pretty solid entry and she also draws well. (6) NEWCASTLE has been rock-solid but faces a tall order having drawn outside the top ones.

Race 6

(3) CREAMPUFF MACDADDY behaved himself in his second return start and was an easy winner; he's clearly capable of repeating. (2) LORENZO DREAM is the best here but he hasn't been finishing well, and now he's going the added distance. (4) NOBLE WARRAREE is by no means a prolific winner but he can be considered underneath.

Race 7

(1) BLOOMFIELDCANTIFLY has two seconds and a win in her last three at this level and she lands a decent spot in this competitive event. (7) KICK A LOT returns locally for sneaky-sharp connections and he beat better than these a couple of months back at this distance. (8) CALIPARI drops in class again but needs to generate some early speed from this spot; use underneath.

Race 8

(9) KLM EXPRESS doesn't win with that much frequency but the veteran is always a threat with this type and only needs a smooth trip from the second tier to have a legit chance. (1) EXPRESSIVE ACTION has been behaving himself recently; threat. (5) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN drops below the level of the claim for Allard after getting bottomed out last week.

Race 9

(5) MADMAN HALL has just missed in his last two after big tries; Schnittker trainee is ready to score. (4) SOUTHWIND HOPE held off the top choice last week and is the clear threat. (8) FYGI BROS gets a big driver change to Bartlett and can be considered at a price.

Race 10

(3) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN flashed both good early speed and good finishing trot last out; classy veteran lands in a winning spot. (9) SUPER MANNING picks up Bartlett and he's had his moments here in the past versus better than these. (5) DETROIT RAPPER also returns locally and he's a quality trotter.

Race 11

(4) REAL FLIGHT drops in price while in sharp form and he deserves top billing despite facing a competitive field. (6) HEEZ ORL BLACK N has fallen on hard times recently but he's still probably best here; needs a wakeup call. (3) COBBLE BEACH ships in debuting for Banca; instant respect.

Race 12

(5) REGULUS N makes his fourth return start for Tritton and the price should be right considering he's outside what he has to beat; take a shot. (1) RAMPAGE JACKSON draws best and is the controlling speed. (4) LONG LIVE ROCK closed crisply in his debut for a new barn.
