Steve Matthews’ horse racing selections for Dec. 2 at Aqueduct

Best Bet: ANGRY MOON (8);

Best Value: LITTLE MISS JULIA (7)

11 Mile. 3&up. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $55,000. Post — 12:20 p.m.1Stephen Got Mad(L1)121Garciax-x-xLugovich12-12Brimstone121Ortiz2-5-xDonk9-53Aaron Burr(L)121Arroyo11-x-xKimmel5-14Super Psyche(L)121Alvarado6-3-2Mott2-15Mascarello(L)116Cancel3-7-4Bond7-26Who Is the Giant(L)121Arrieta4-9-5Scott30-1Mascarello was a change-of-pace third in last; price play in weak opener. Super Psyche has failed as the favorite in last two starts; handle with care at short ticket. Who Is the Giant fired half-mile bullet for first start in 54 days; price will be tempting.

26 1⁄4 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $25,000.3More Than Rainbows(L)121Arroyo6-1-1Sciacca5-14Colonel Juanita(L)122Rodriguez1-2-2Terracciano2-11My Donna Jean(L)120Davis5-4-3Contessa12-15Ave’s Halo(L)120Saez10-7-3Adsit8-12Little Gidding(L)111Gomez7-2-2Grusmark15-16Jersey Jules(L)114Cancel4-6-3Adsit3-17Bridgetta(L)118Luzzi2-6-6Cannizzo4-11aSwakopmund(L)118Davis5-9-4Contessa12-12bCotton Pickin(L)111Gomez6-8-7Grusmark15-18Rock Show(L)111Davis4-5-6Parker20-1Jersey Jules is fresh and should pack enhanced wallop with cutback to sprint. More Than Rainbows could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride from the rail. Colonel Juanita was a determined winner versus pricier field last time; logical, short-priced player.

31 Mile. (Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $40,000. Purse: $41,000.1La Dama de Hierro(L)124Arrieta5-5-5Shevy12-12Hope’s Roar(L)121Franco5-2-3Brown3-13Quibbler(L)121Ortiz10-3-3Levine5-24Mini Muffin(L)124Davis8-3-9Polanco30-15Little Mary Ellen(L)116Hernandez7-5-7Grusmark20-16Yourcreditisgood(L)121Cruz2-3-3Orseno15-17Bubbe Zena(L)121Ortiz, Jr3-8-7Donk6-18Wantagh Queen(L)119Cancel6-3-4Barker10-19Saratoga by Design(L)121Garcia12-9-3Goodwin8-110Irish Laughter(L)121Carmouche3-4-5Gyarmati5-1Also Eligible11Super City(L)124Velasquez4-5-7O’Brien20-112Ranger’s Express(L)121Alvarado6-3-2Barbara5-213Broken Border(L)121Franco4-4-11Servis2-1Main Track Only14Wild Image(L1)124Alvarado2-x-xMott5-215Paw Annie(L)121No Rider8-3-2Rojas12-116Kool Charli(L)116Hernandez2-12-7Ibrahim12-1Wild Image was a fast-closing second in sprint debut and compiled tight work tab in the interim. Bubba Zen was a much-improved third in last; dangerous. Wantagh Queen owns competitive numbers on best efforts.

41 Mile. 3&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $20,000.1Rap d’Oro(L)115Hernandez4-6-5Ferraro8-12Groomedforvictory(L)118Davis3-4-3Imperio5-23Everydoghashisday(L)120Blake6-8-6Parker20-14Professor Palmer(L)115Davis11-6-3Scott15-15Lure of the South(L)120Ortiz, Jr7-1-5Rodriguez7-26Where’s Danny(L)118Velasquez9-7-5Jacobson4-17Mississippi Duel(L)120Gryder5-1-5Gargan3-18Most Happy Fella(L)111Gomez9-6-6Barrera, III30-1Rap d’Oro is riding a forward line on the numbers and pulls weight from the main contenders. Groomedforvictory was a fast-figured third in last; dangerous. Mississippi Duel regressed in last after fast-numbered win in prior; rebound potential.

51 1⁄8 Miles. (Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance. Purse: $67,000.1Mata Mua(L)119Ortiz3-1-7McGaughey III12-13Queen Corey(L)122Velasquez10-5-6Rubley20-14Angel Choir117Cancel2-1-1Duggan12-15So Good to Go(L)122Carmouche1-6-3Jacobson10-17Theresas Candyrose(L)122Alvarado1-1-3Barbara15-18Issheit(L)122Saez3-4-1Pino20-19Corner Three(L)121Castellano1-5-1Brown5-210Indian Starlight(L)112Francois2-5-2Handal8-111Runner Runner(L)119Ortiz, Jr4-4-3Brown3-112Dreaming as Always(L)124de Sousa1-5-1Clement4-1Main Track Only2Lucky Nancy E.(L)124No Rider3-1-4Ryerson5-16Jademarie(L)119Carmouche2-3-7Englehart8-11aFair Point(L)119Ortiz2-2-1McGaughey III12-1Theresas Candyrose is riding a two-race winning streak and is 2-for-2 on wet tracks. Lucky Nancy E. is a front-running threat on ‘A’ game. Fair Point has hit the board in all six starts; must consider.

66 1⁄4 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $34,000.2Swivel(L)114Hernandez8-5-4Kimmel4-13Dynamo Flotilla(L)114Gomez4-2-4Barbara15-14Dean Verdile(L)122Carmouche9-9-6Levine15-15Got Winged(L)122Saez5-2-10Adsit12-16Deputy Busterstone(L)119Alvarado6-3-3Domino5-17Awesome Bill(L)116Cancel8-8-8Ribaudo10-18Broadway Bay(L)121Velasquez5-4-8Brown8-19Sherifco(L)124Ortiz8-1-6Nevin7-21Salem Loop(L)122Franco3-4-8Sciacca15-11aSunny Puzzle(L)119Arroyo2-9-5Sciacca15-110Hundred Percent(L)122Ortiz, Jr6-4-1Englehart9-211Touchdown(L)122Garcia5-7-9Donato30-1Hundred Percent notched improved internal numbers in last; return to N2L seals the deal. Awesome Bill needed last and owns fast back figures; very interesting. Sherifco drops after poor effort in slop last time; more than good enough based on effort on April 2. Got Winged gets blinkers in first start since claimed by Abigail Adsit; don’t ignore.

76 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $35,000.1Make Your Point(L)117Ortiz, Jr2-9-8Rodriguez8-12Harlans Belle(L)118Cruz8-1-4Toscano, Jr5-13Majestic Jessica(L)113Cancel6-4-4Brown7-24My Jimmy Chew Girl(L)117DeCarlo5-2-4Gyarmati15-15Little Miss Julia(L)116Fragoso1-6-7Fisher20-16Crazy ‘bout Elvis(L)117Ortiz6-7-1Asmussen10-17Touching My Toes(L)112Hernandez3-2-4Jacobson5-28Star Dynasty(L)116Carmouche3-1-5Gargan3-1Little Miss Julia gets confident price hike after determined win in first start on Big A loam; pairs up. Make Your Point also jumps in price after hard-charging placing in last; very dangerous. Touching My Toes makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson; more than good enough on ‘A’ game.

86 Furlongs. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $69,000.1Alex the Terror(L)119Carmouche1-3-1Toscano, Jr5-12Juba(L)120Ortiz4-3-6Jerkens4-13Bridget’s Big Luvy(L)117Alvarado7-4-8Englehart12-14Nubin Ridge(L)120Cruz1-3-1Englehart8-15Sam Sparkle(L)118Franco8-1-6Cannizzo12-16Angry Moon(L)118Trujillo1-5-8Englehart30-17S’maverlous(L)120Castellano3-1-1Maker7-28Takajo(L)115Cancel6-4-11Terranova, II6-19Crafty Dreamer(L)118Arroyo7-6-7Iselin20-110Notorious(L)119Ortiz, Jr5-1-1Ward15-111Sir Bond(L)113Hernandez2-2-3Jacobson8-1Angry Moon was a front-running winner on grass last time and projects as the swiftest of the swift on dirt. Notorious owns advantageous stalker’s style and is training with a purpose for first start since September. Juba owns speed and fast figs; be no surprise. Takajo packs potent late kick on best efforts; don’t dismiss.

96 1⁄4 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $40,000. Purse: $41,000.2Champagne Therapy(L)120Alvarado8-7-xSchosberg10-13Marakovits(L)120Franco4-x-xBaker8-11Stone Age Honey(L1)115Hernandezx-x-xContessa6-14Love You Babe(L)113Gomez2-12-4Brown4-15Live Like Jay(L)120Ortiz, Jr6-6-xMcPeek5-16E Warfare(L1)115Cancelx-x-xMorley12-11aNight Madam(L)120Davis9-5-5Contessa6-17Head Shrinker(L)120Ortiz2-2-10Morley5-28So Cruel(L)120Castellano Jr9-5-xBrown20-19Grace’s Joy(L)120Rodriguez8-x-xRyerson8-1Night Madam goes turf to dirt, long to short and logged three tight works in 11 days; primed for breakthrough. Head Shrinker has finished second in last two starts; continues trend? Love You Babe was a clear-cut second in last; developing and dangerous. E Warfare fired 5-furlong bullet for debut; follow the money.
