Steve Matthews’ Aqueduct selections for Sunday, April 24

Best Bet: BUST ANOTHER (3); Best Value: WIREDANCER (9)

FIRST: Make Your Point wheels back in a hurry after front-end win two weeks ago; pairs up. Ferzetti could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Little Miss Lupe drops and owns fast back figures; worth long look at long price.

SECOND: Mama’s Red Hat was second to a next-out winner in last and logged fastest numbers on turf. Indygo Tigress could play out as the main speed in turf debut. Antebellum tallied solid number in lone turf start; right in the thick of this.

THIRD: Bust Another notched improved final fraction when winning last; more to come. Sudden Surprise is speedy and is firing bullets; big-time danger. Lucky Lurie was a tough-trip fourth in last; must consider.

FOURTH: Night Madam was a clear-cut second on dirt last time and could be ideally positioned in the stalker’s seat on turf. About Face is rested and drops to lifetime low; dangerous. Elementsofharmony will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead; big-time player.

FIFTH: All On Red made mild rally in debut and should be aided by today’s additional quarter mile. Gorgeous Charli displayed good turn of early foot when third to a much-the-best winner in debut; very dangerous on a soft lead. Chomsky is 0-for-12 but owns field’s fastest final figures; must consider.

SIXTH: Nobody Move moves to turf after logging improved late pace figure in last start; call in wide-open field. Aragonite also makes first grass start after earning improved internal numbers in last; dangerous. Cliffs of Dover regressed in last after fast-figured fourth in prior; rebound potential.

SEVENTH: Narvez took backward step in last after fast-figured win two starts back; rebounds. Celebrated Talent owns speed and fast figs but takes suspicious price plunge; fire sale? Metaurus gets class relief and fired 3-furlong bullet last week; worth long look at long price.

EIGHTH: Prizedtoperfection has trained sharply since swift-numbered win at GP in January; ready for return. Lira fired half-mile bullet since even fourth as the favorite in last on GP sod; dangerous. Time and Motion compiled eye-catching work slate since breaking maiden last month in South Florida; right in the thick of this.

NINTH: Wiredancer was an improved fourth in last and logged half-mile drill on Wednesday; call based on price. Double Mane logged career-best pace and final figures in last; developing and dangerous. Naughty Grace has finished second in last two starts; logical. Show Giant is speedy and could prove tough on an uncontested lead.
