Hollywood for Friday 4 June 2010


Handicappers Corner

Selections will be posted between 7:30 & 8:00 am Pacific time for Saturday's card


Recommended pick 4 part wheel starts in the 5th

1,3,7,8  with  1,2,4,9  with  3  with  5,7,9      48 bets


race 1   average clarity

4  Suances De Espana   strong 1st out after the claim (blinkers on) for the on fire Morey barn......must have come out of the race great because he steps this filly up more than triple in claiming price....sure appears to appreciate the Hol synthetic

5  Lavender Touch   stepped way up in her 1st after the claim last......ran second to a very tough foe as our top choice at 9 to 1....steps up again so like our top pick apparently came out of her last race in very good shape

1  Carnival Queen   consistent closer gets plenty of pace to make her late run....does tend to hang.....sure be right there when it counts


race 2    average clarity

1  Take A Yard    bred to like a route a ground on the sod...MSW sprint debut looks like the tune-up (all part of a solid work regiment) to be all legged up and ready to roll in his 2nd lifetime start 

4  Juniper Pass   on the improve with each lifetime start....good shot to move forward once again which would make her a bonafide MSW top contender

6  Ducane   decent shot to get an advantageouschase position behind a suspect leader


race 3    slightly above average clarity

8  Fantando   all 4 lifetime efforts appear good enough to be tough in this spot.....good shot to move forward 2nd after the layoff

9  Decarchy Fever   been off a year and only has 1 lifetime race but a new barn takes over and the drills suggest they have turned him into a racehorse and have her ready to roll

3  Iotabgray    last two races with the blinkers on fit for this bottom maiden level......race he ran at 7 furlongs 3 back was a hidden subtle bad trip...blinks on today

4  Fionnaur    2nd out after the layoff and takes the plunge out of MSW racing to the bottom....seems dangerous


race 4    slightly above average clarity

6  Welken    this mare is on auto-pilot when it comes to grass racing....13 0f 14 1st or 2nd and the other was a 3rd....up near the pace or off of the pace she is there when it counts...combine this with Michell winning over 1/3 of his races this meeting

1  Oui Say Oui    top form (back to a route) has returned to this filly who will be tough if she repeats her last and a monster if she moves forward

2  Lilly Fa Pootz   last two races fit....good likelihood she can get a ground saving mid pace position which she likes

5  It Tiz   quality 3 year old filly just worked as tough she will handle her 1st ever on the turf......she will need her very best off of the long layoff to handle these solid older gals


race 5    slightly above average clarity

7  Frequent Fame   strong figs in the last 2 races she ran at 6F.....hasn't missed a beat in the morning since shipping back from GG

8  This Time Baby   need her race 3 back...her last effort at today's 6 furlong distance

3  Warren's Swamp Fox   filly takes a significant drop to earn a few bucks and pay for her keep....trainer could use a win as well

1  Cenizo   impressive drills for this filly....switches to an apprentice rider which hasn't exactly been a positive of late with any of the apps at Hollywood....1st app to start riding well and winning will have all the mounts he can handle


race 6    average clarity

4  Fortunate Appeal    seemingly a good spot for a 1st timer and this gelding has a very strong series of drills  and a hot trainer.....worked twice at 7F including a 125:3 

9  Speedy Marini   Kruljac barn is heating is improving with every start and so are the works

2  Warren's Tommy Too   2 solid route races since the blinkers were added.....fits well in this spot if this gelding can duplicate those efforts back in a sprint today

1  Brianville   good debut and has the right to move forward....would have selected higher if it wasn't for a difficult post to handle going 6 1/2 at Hol


race 7    slightly above average clarity

3  Sister Dawn  very powerful sprints on the AW in her last 2 efforts and she is bred well for the sod...rather sure the grass won't be a problem

1  Sweet Hanni   consistent hard trying sort should get position near the front in what looks like a reasonably paced affair

4  Full Mandate   seems best at today's distance of 6F.....filly had to close into a soft pace in her last yet still made up ground...barn could use a winner


race 8    average clarity

7  Souvenir Summer    nice forward move in last sitting close to a solid pace....2 very reassuring 5F works since....colt appears to be doing well...can be prominent throughout

5  Surefire   laid up gelding trains as if he's all set to rock n roll in his return to the race wars...good trainer/rider combo especially wth maidens

9  Titus Aurelius    moved forward in his 2nd U S of A race and now takes the ever dangerous plunge from MSW to maiden 25K

3  Eminent Honor   blocked about 8 lengths in his last and only was 6 1/2 lengths from the winner at the wire.....trainer and the rider are looking for their 1st win.....not encouraging but surely will help enhance his odds

6  Major Madagan   improved in both pace and final time in last......back fairly quick and also has worked decently since his last...maybe feeling really good...another win-less outfit in 2010...but hey rider is 1 for 30...she be a price as well
