Steve Matthews' Aqueduct selections for Saturday, March 26
Best Bet: WITCH HUNTER (2); Best Value: ZOOMER (9)
FIRST: Shesalittle Edgy makes first start since claimed and should be ideally positioned near the front. Its Cold in Dehere will be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Easy to Bless regressed in last after fast-figured win two back; rebound threat.
SECOND: Witch Hunter tallied fast late-pace figure when a last-to-first winner in most recent; pairs up. First Forever was a front-end victor in most recent; worth long look. Investment Grade is speedy and must be given a puncher's chance at a fat price.
THIRD: Dark Money logged rapid final fraction when winning second straight last out; more to come. Smile Bryan is fresh and owns fast numbers on best efforts. Belle Tapisserie bounced last time after determined win in previous start; must consider.
FOURTH: Honey Money notched crisp 5-furlong drill since even third in last; forward move predicted. Foxtail was a game second in last and owns faster back figures; very interesting. Customerexperience, a hot commodity at the claim box, could easily take this on "A" game.
FIFTH: Tiergan visually and numerically impressed when winning last; keeps on giving. Fast Break is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Pier Forty would be aided by fast fractions; price will be tempting.
SIXTH: Brilliant Brooks exits clear-cut score in most recent and shows a history of stringing big efforts. Aristocratic is speedy and riding a two-race winning streak; very dangerous. Magnificent Chrome is another that has won two in a row; right in the thick of this.
SEVENTH: Awesome Indra overcame swift splits to win last; wire to wire reprise. Barista Vixen should pack enhanced kick with turnback to 6 furlongs; very playable. Ok Honey demolished entry-level allowance rival in most recent; must be factored into the mix.
EIGHTH: Therisastormbrewin projects as the dominant speed in first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Giocare, an uncoupled barnmate of top selection, packs potent late wallop on best efforts; big-time player. Bar Fourteen tallied solid numbers when an eight-length winner in last; don't ignore.
NINTH: Zoomer zoomed past rivals to win second straight last time; takes another. Prince James holds razor-sharp current condition; dangerous. Answer In is another that's in peak form; ultra-contentious dash.
TENTH: Winning Drive, a last-race winner, owns sit-and-pounce style that could be well served in wide-open nightcap. Next Flight has worked three times since much-improved placing in last; very interesting. Mi Tres Por Ciento regressed in last after fast-figured win in previous start; bounce-back threat. Direct Order displays a profile that similar to 'Ciento'; one of the players.
