Today’s NY Hot List races to watch – March 20, 2013 at Aqueduct

Hot List Key:

A : A preferred horse to watch                  B: Secondary horse to watch
*C: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 1st through 3rd
*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse
* - 4 or more betting notches if 11-1 or more.

2nd race – (4) Bedouin Now (a B last time) drops into a claimer for the first time and has run well in the MSW ranks so he is worth a long look. (6) Big Foot Ben drops back in for a tag and looks fast enough on paper for this group. (8) Concorde’s Peace ran a career best first off the layoff and could move forward again. (2) Yo Blue should not be overlooked third off the layoff.

3rd race – (4) Tweet Me (B) drops down and turns back to 6 furlongs for this race which should make him formidable. (2) Siero is 2-for-2 in his short career and looks very much like the horse to beat. (3) Cobalto (C) is one we’ve liked in the past and tries winners for the first time off a strong maiden-breaking effort.

8th race – (3) Lady Gracenote ran a respectable fourth in a Grade II last time and should be tough in this field. (2) Freud’s Notebook has won 5 of 11 on the inner and goes out first off the claim for Linda Rice. (6) Harbor Mist is likely to be heavily bet, but the light workload and lack of inner track form makes us wary of taking a short price.

9th race – (8) Retired (C) has burned a lot of money with four straight second-place finishes. Perhaps trying a sprint will wake him up. (7) Cuvee City had a valid excuse after a bad start last time and now returns to the claim ranks as a member of the Asmussen barn. (1) Night Editor should run better on the class drop. (10) Winning Gold improved last time and could sit off the pace here and wind up prevailing at a price.

Best bet: Bedouin Now (2nd); Best value: Retired (9th)

No.
