Steve Matthews' Aqueduct selections for Saturday, Nov. 20

Best Bet: DRAFTED (6); Best Value: SCUTTLEBUZZ (8)

FIRST: Magical Marriage owns field's fastest late-pace figures. Aruba was a tough-trip fourth in last; very playable. Royne owns two seconds from four starts; likely to be undervalued.

SECOND: Cousin Andrew made sustained rally when third in last; more to give. Elusive Edge regressed in last after game placing in previous start; bounce-back threat. Fair Haired Boy lost head bob to top selection for the show spot last time; must consider.

THIRD: Lost in Rome fired 5-furlong bullet since speed and fade versus pricier last time; duly tightened. Crypto Cash wheels back on 13 days' rest and returns to dirt; improvement expected. Baby I'm Perfect is right in the thick of this on best efforts.

FOURTH: No Time Alone owns speed and drops; tight workout tab seals the deal. Belleshazza should be aided by added ground; price will be tempting. Vexednrelaxed displayed improved early foot in last; dangerous.

FIFTH: Fort Washington was freshened after strong third in debut; breakthrough predicted. King of Hollywood is riding a forward line on the numbers. Dr. Brownes Miracle exits sprints and should be favorably positioned; must consider.

SIXTH: Drafted gets class relief, cuts back to shorter sprint and makes third start of form cycle; all systems go. Cost Basis owns speed, fast numbers and is training sharply; very dangerous. Mr Phil is a front-running threat on "A" efforts; don't ignore.

SEVENTH: Dads Good Runner adds blinkers after pursuing swift splits in debut; wire to wire with aggressive handling. Matt Doyle, another that dons the shades, could be ideally placed in the stalker's seat. Main Event compiled solid work tab for debut; stay tuned to the tote.

EIGHTH: Scuttlebuzz was done in by poor ride and wide trip last time; jockey change makes the difference. Bustin Shout was a game second in lone start on Big A sod; very interesting. Call Me Harry has drilled three times since determined win in last; right in the thick of this.

NINTH: No Word has worked three times since tough-trip fifth in last; improvement predicted. Serve the King packs potent late wallop on best races; dangerous. Tide of the Sea is speedy and starts from the hedge; worth long look.

TENTH: Catching Cupid was a sharp second in debut; two, crisp half-mile works in the interim seal the deal. Bosship debuts after noticeably picking up the tempo in most recent works; follow the money. Hot Rod Rumble notched a second and a third in last two starts; logical contender. Thrill of It adds blinkers for barn that's profitable when putting on the hood; don't overlook.
