Today’s NY Hot List races to watch – WEDNESDAY, May 6, 2015 at Belmont Park
By Bob Ehalt and Shawn Rychling

Hot List Key:

A: A preferred horse to watch                         B: Secondary horse to watch
*C: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 1st through 3rd
*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse
* – 4 or more betting notches if 11-1 or more.

2nd race – (3) Be Bullish (C) has won three in a row since Jacobson reclaimed and he cuts price in half for the 10-year-old today while sliding into open company. (1) Grandpa Len (B) has stepped up his last two starts and just a small move forward makes him a top contender. (7) Love to Run finished just behind our second pick last time out. (4) Luckysdream steps up a notch off a win and while in good form overall.

4th race – (8) Starago (A) shows best last race and should be sharper second off the bench. (2) Aprettysmoothguy (A) moved forward in second career start and should be ready to roll stretching out on turf. (6) Mangold improved smartly last start when trying the grass for the first time and should continue that trend. (3) Greg’s Fourwheeler has been competitive in the MSW ranks. Drops in for a tag here and should be ready to fire third off a layoff.

5th race – (6) Dariel (A) is lightly raced with a win in her debut and a second in just two career outings so far. Drops a notch in tag price for this one and gets in light to boot. (1) Saluda drops back down to win level while in best form of her career. (3) Partytime Chill drops to an all-time low. (2) Papa’s Missile improved sharply to break maiden last time and we’ll give her a shot on expected value.

7th race – (3) Matterhorn (A) put in a nice forward move last time second off the layoff and should fire best shot today. (1) Ship Disturber (C) figures to run better dropping out of an overnight stakes. (2) Joking is a consistent performer, but needs to step it up a bit to reach the winner’s circle. (6) Peter Island is worth a look off a 13-month layoff.

Best bets: Be Bullish (2nd); Dariel (6th); Best value: Starago (4th)
