Steve Matthews’ Aqueduct selections for Saturday, Nov. 5

Best Bet: AFLEET WILLY (6)

Best Value: CAPTAIN KITT (2)

FIRST: Here and There was a front-running winner in last and projects as the main speed once again. Will Did It owns stalker’s style and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Cause for Surprise logged fast-figured score in last; very dangerous.

SECOND: Captain Kitt is riding a forward line on the numbers and makes peak start of form cycle. Bull was a tough-trip third in last; big-time player. Oh So Sinister owns sprinter’s speed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead.

THIRD: Curious Cal is speedy and riding a three-race winning streak; call in small but contentious field. John’s Island was just two lengths behind top selection in last; dangerous. True Bet is competitive efforts; don’t ignore.

FOURTH: That Makes Sense packs potent late kick and makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson. Zartax owns speed and fast back numbers. Virga logged three tight works for switch to dirt; right in the thick of this.

FIFTH: Voodoo Song moves to grass after notching swift final fraction in debut; addition of Lasix adds to appeal. Dr. Koy is bred to improve with today’s added ground. Mission Leader is fleet-footed and can prove tough on a soft lead.

SIXTH: Afleet Willy ships to NY after fast-figured win last time at Parx; ready for prime time. Jack O Liam is speedy and rested; very dangerous. Sail Ahoy could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

SEVENTH: Dream Man overcame soft fractions when a determined winner in last; call in ultra-contentious field. Plainview takes precipitous price plunge after change-of-pace victory in last; mixed message. Put It Forward needed last and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.

EIGHTH: Berned compiled six tight works for first start since breaking maiden on Sept. 10; call based on price. Miss Sky Warrior was a fast-figured winner in last at Parx; very dangerous. Cursor has delivered strong efforts in both starts; must consider.

NINTH: Song for the Soul is speedy and could get the early jump in field that’s loaded with newcomers. My Girl Annie debuts for Chad Brown; follow the money. Baby I’m Blue fired 3-furlong bullet for first start; could be the goods. Quick On the Draw was a tough-trip fifth in debut; price will be tempting.

TENTH: Kangaroo Style should get the early jump in bulky field. After Cheyenne exits hard-charging maiden score in last; worth long look at long price. Papa Freud owns competitive numbers on “A” game. Late Night Mark was a game second in last; must be considered.
