Yonkers: Tuesday 4/5 Analysis


MEET STATS: 88 - 348 / $606.30 

BEST BETS: 10 - 39 / $38.70



Race 1

(3) SOHO HIGHROLLER A seems to be knocking at the door based on his last two trips to the post; threat at his best. (7) GD AIRLINER could move forward with the drop in class. (1) LITTLE MICHAEL B will need a much better trip than in his previous outing.

Race 2

(4) COVERT OPERATIVE lost all chance when he broke at the start last out. If he can return to his March 22nd start, he will be quite formidable. (1) LILYS SWAN POND was late on the scene to nail down the victory last time out. (2) STAYIN STRONG showed good trot even when he was on the rim and held on for the placing last time around.

Race 3

(1) NORTHERN OBSESSION is a sharp and consistent trotter that lost glory by only a neck last out. Now she receives the rail and has every right to boss these down the road. (7) TROPICAL STORM BI has scored two straight victories and his last one was very sharp wire to window. (2) GABE THE BEAR DEAN had a bad post to work with last out but closed strongly to miss the score by a neck; watch out.

Race 4

(4) MAESTRO BLUE CHIP hasn't done anything wrong and is unbeaten this year going five for five; the one to deny. (5) BJANTHONY could be in a perfect spot to contend with the top pick; we shall see. (1) LATOKA retains the rail and was facing open foes in his last two outings.

Race 5

(2) JACKIE GOLDSTEIN put in a mild rally for the show spot in his last try. Gelding fits well in here given the inside slot and should do quite well on the half-mile oval. (5) STORMONT PARK was outrun early but he had a mild bid to grab fourth money last out. (3) SUMMERS WINDSONG could have a say if she reverts to her March 15th outing.

Race 6

(3) KEYSTONE BODACIOUS broke at the start and he never recovered last time around. I'll give this gelding another shot at glory. He does have a win here and has hit the board 5 of 8 this year. (2) J A T O was facing open foes upstate and was a fast-closing second last out. (1) FOREVER AS went down the road for the victory at Dover Downs recently.

Race 7

(2) MERCURY FASHION gets a cozy post today and if you throw out his latest, this trotter is very capable of taking these to task. (6) P L INDYANACA was sharp in her last two efforts and appears to be the main danger. (9) EXPLOSIVE VICTORY was up on the rim at the 3/4 pole but could not go forward, but she held on for show money last time out.

Race 8

Going to give (9) BRICKYARD CLASSIC a shot to put his best foot forward. Gelding's last two outings were decent and he could make some noise with a well rated drive. (3) COUSIN EDDIE is on a roll scoring his third straight victory; the one to fear. (10) CELEBRITY BLUECHIP was sent down the road in his last start for all the marbles at this level; watch out.

Race 9

(6) MOVEMENT was flashing good speed against tougher last time around. She moves back to her winning level and it is good to see Bartlett keeps the drive; threat at her best. (10) AMALFI COAST just got up for win honors against lesser company last time around; should fare well from the second tier. (7) DRIVING MISS CRAZY led for over 3/4's but was nailed for the win by Amalfi Coast last week.

Race 10

(4) SING OUT showed signs of life in his last start when he flashed good early trot and held on for the show spot. Now he faces a so-so group and there's a chance this trotter can move forward and greet the camera man for pictures. (6) POCKET PASSER did not fire in his last two tries but could get a better trip against these; maybe. (1) PHOTO KING ships in from Saratoga and moves to the fence; must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 11

(2) GWALLY had a even trip for the show spot last time out. Six-year-old trotter figures to do much better in here with move back to this level; primed to take this. (3) R CHOOCHOO CHARLIE did not fire as the chalk last out, but this 5-year-old showed good late trot to miss the victory by only 3/4 of a length. (9) POLITICAL DESIRE is clearly knocking at the door based on his last two tries and his latest in Ohio was quite sharp; beware.

Race 12

(1) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER was sent down the road but in deep stretch but  was caught by Gallant Seelster in his most recent outing. Stays on the fence and based on his consistency, this gelding can be the boss over this group for his second score of the year. (6) BUBBIE BOY leaves the 8-hole and he does have late punch to contend with these. (4) CLASSY HILL was a fast-closing second last out and that puts this gelding right in the mix; we shall see.
