Best Bet: THIS TIME (7th)

Spot Play: SS POSEIDON (11th)

 

Race 1

(3) FRANKANDJOANNE did not have the best of trips last out; could rebound to his July 21th start for all the glory. (1) GRAND GALOP SEMALU was a sharp second in his last try; threat. (4) HEAVEN ROCKS Last two qualifiers at Pocono could put this one in the mix.

Race 2

(2) FALCOR BLUESTONE makes his return to Yonkers where he closed strongly to get the job done on July 28th; ready to top these at his best. (3) AMALFI COAST Tough break in his latest; could make amends. (1) BLACK WIND should do much better from the fence; watch out.

Race 3

(1) LIMITLESS Trotting gelding moves back to the rail slot, a flat mile and on the dropdown; plenty to like about this guy. (4) MEADOWVIEW ARNY flashed speed in his last trip; main danger. (7) BINGO QUEEN She did close well for the place spot last out; beware.

Race 4

(7) PASSIONATE KISSER just missed the score by only half a length; can mow these down with a favorable trip. (4) RANSOM DEMAND gets post relief and that could help his cause; maybe. (2) JIGGLE IT can be a factor with this group; watch out.

Race 5

(1) BAD CANTAB makes his initial trip to Yonkers; did race well at Saratoga last time out; can take these to task from the fence. (3) RILEYS DREAM faced better at the Big M last out; should be contend at this level. (4) LE TISSIER was a sharp second at Philly in his previous start; not out of this.

Race 6

(1) SHE GLIDES Sophomore filly should find these trotters to her liking; has tactical speed; should rate and score. (2) CELEBRITY BLUECHIP was a rallying second at Tioga in his last trip; contender. (4) STIRLING CADET gets class relief; don't overlook.

Race 7

(5) THIS TIME showed good early pace in his last start; good to see Brennan with the return call; threat at his best. (6) BRICKMAN has scored in his last two trips to the post; dangerous. (3) OFFICIAL PRINCE put in a mild rally for the fourth spot last time out; can be right in the thick of it.

Race 8

(8) VANGURA Sharp pacer has wheeled off two straight victories; can top these from the 8-hole. (6) ROLAND N ROCK was nailed for win honors in his latest; fits with these. (1) WISHING YOU WELL will be on the engine from the rail slot; can't count him out of this.

Race 9

(3) BATTLE MAGE She raced quite well at The Meadowlands last time out; last seen here was on June 30th when she just missed the victory; big threat. (5) KATNISS moves down in class and that should help her chances in here. (1) QUIKWIT Gelding fits well from the rail and should be right in the thick of it; maybe.

Race 10

(4) JESSES STORY Trotting miss is in sharp form; has hit the board in her last six tries; big player. (5) CAMBRIDGE ships in from Pocono with tactical speed and Brennan signs on to drive; contender. (7) CASHAHALLIC just got up for the score in his last one; watch out again.

Race 11

(8) SS POSEIDON did not fire his best last out; he can put it all together with a favorable trip and a fine-timed drive from Smith. (5) SCIROCCO JAKOB flashed good speed last time around; dangerous with Brennan on the return call. (1) EXPLOSIVEDAY Easy victory at Philly last time out; keeps the rail slot so beware.

Race 12

(4) RESPECTABLE DREAM is clearly knocking at the door; seems to be ready to rate and score over this group. (1) SOUTHWIND MASIMO gets serious post relief and that should help his chances; factor. (2) FAN OF TERROR Consistent pacer has scored in his last two starts; big player again despite the rise in class.
