Steve Matthews’ Aqueduct selections for Sunday, Feb. 14

Best Bet: DOUBLE MANE (9)


FIRST: More Than Rainbows tallied improved pace in last and fired 5-furlong bullet in the interim; breakthrough predicted. Natalie Victoria makes first start for Rudy Rodriguez after fast-figured score in last; very dangerous. Pushme Pullyou would be aided by fast fractions.

SECOND: Comandante drops after speed and fade in last; tighter today. Beautyintyhepulpit was a clear-cut winner at this level in last and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Hurry Up Alan gets price hike after game placing in last; very interesting.

THIRD: Moon Over Beauty was victimized by bad start last out; deserves another chance. King Kranz gets favorable cutback to sprint and owns fast figs on ‘A’ game. Zen Papa has worked four times since being defeated by ‘Kranz’ on New Year’s Day; right in the thick of this.

FOURTH: Evolution has worked three times and been gelded since last outing; improvement predicted. Greyjoy owns fast final fractions and makes first start since claimed; very playable. Johnny U is a front-running threat on best efforts.

FIFTH: Jubilant Vision is riding a forward line on late pace and final figures and will offer juicy ticket. Prairie Stone is training sharply for first start in seven weeks; dangerous. Mrs. Hudson logged swift numbers in last two starts; must consider.

SIXTH: Star Mily owns speed, gets Lasix and drops; call in wide-open maiden dash that’s loaded with newcomers from top barns. Egyptian Rose adds blinkers after much-improved placing in last; dangerous. Causeway Cutie could impact at fat ticket if pace meltdown ensues.

SEVENTH: Beautiful Risk has drilled three times since even fourth in last; forward move predicted. Jane Peterson gets class relief and starts from the fence after failing to beat a runner in last; must take the good with the bad. My Wild Gata has finished second in last two starts; right in the thick of this. Saharan Serenade gets rider upgrade and drops; don’t ignore.

EIGHTH: Organic Gemini tallied improved final fraction when winning last; more to give. Swell also exits fast-figured victory in last; big-time threat. Uncharted Course is fresh and could be ideally positioned in the stalker’s seat.

NINTH: Double Mane should pack intensified late wallop with cutback to 6 furlongs; bullet work last week seals the deal. Rahy’s Bandit was a clear-cut second in lone inner-track outing; dangerous. Whodattcat is speedy and rested; very interesting. Bustin Aces also is fleet-footed but will offer much shorter price; you make the call.
