Steve Matthews’ Aqueduct selections for Saturday, Nov. 19

Best Bet: VEYA (2); Best Value: FAMILY MEETING (6)

FIRST: Zonic has worked three times and gets Lasix since useful seventh in debut; forward move predicted. Disavow was a tough-trip fourth in first start; very playable. Sicilia Mike has finished second in both starts; logical, short-priced player.

SECOND: Veya overcame soft front-end flow when a clear-cut winner in last; pairs up victories. On Tap owns sprinter’s speed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Black Tide has fired two bullet works since fast-figured second in last; right in the thick of this.

THIRD: Sunday Soldier has been gelded since debut and is training sharply for return. The Caretaker tallied swift late-pace figure when a strong third in first start; very dangerous. T Loves a Fight made strong run when a willing second in last; big-time player.

FOURTH: Asphalt Paving notched solid final fraction in muddy-track debut and is bred to improve on grass. Apartfromthecrowd was fourth at even money in first start; must consider if able to escape AE list. Panama Papers, also below AE line, could prove very tough on a soft lead. Adonis Creed hails from potent second-out stable; worth long look. Condo Prince owns fast dirt numbers and moves to grass; demand value.

FIFTH: La Cat Warrior held off a next-out winner when a determined victor in debut; more to come. Tribecca, a front-running winner in last at Parx, could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Fled has worked swiftly since breaking maiden on Oct. 2; developing and dangerous.

SIXTH: Family Meeting owns swift late-pace numbers and compiled tight work tab for first start since June; call based on price. Enchanteresse overcame traffic trouble when a willing winner in last at the Meadowlands; very interesting. Armoire has yet to taste defeat in two out-of-town starts and could be ready for prime time; serious threat.

SEVENTH: Oxford Circus was a clear-cut second to a much-the-best winner in last; timid call in race that’s jammed with newcomers. Miggsy concluded work tab with 5-furlong bullet; could be the goods. Skyler’s Scramjet is another firster that ended training with bullet drill; tote watching a must.

EIGHTH: Vision Perfect was a breakthrough winner in last at Belmont and owns a victory on Big A sod; more to come. Jay Gatsby was pace compromised when a fast-figured second in last; very dangerous. Night Prowler logged three tight drills since tenacious score in last; right in the thick of this.

NINTH: Grey Glory exits game score in last and owns faster back numbers; call in contentious nightcap. You Know I Know failed to handle the slop last time but is more than good enough on dry land; very dangerous. Storm Pursuit is fleet-footed and could play out as the swiftest of the swift. Dad’z Laugh owns speed, fast figures and drops; logical, short-priced player.
