Hollywood for Sunday 13 June 2010

[private]

Something which I have discussed  before is about the amount of  analysis I write for each horse. Often in the past I have felt that I rushed my handicapping for the last couple of races so that I can make our time deadline. Don't think we can change the deadline because we do hear from you when we are even a few minutes late. And I need to see the previous days races to see any bias changes that may occur so usually I study in the morning starting at 5 AM Pacific time. So I've decided to study first and then start typing away so as to not jeopardize the handicapping. This will sometimes mean names and numbers only or brief comments only.  Also I do my best on night racing days to post at 9 AM Pacific ( only bothers 1 or 2 folks and I do understand why) but we don't guarantee our product until a few hours later. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Handicappers Corner

recommended pick 4 part wheel starts in the 7th

4,5,8,9 with 5 with 3,4,6,9,11,13 with 3,5,10    72 plays

 

race 1    average clarity

2  Sidepocket Lou   absolutely loves the 5 1/2 furlong distance and his closing style fits in this spot that should provide ample pace to fire into......best shot for the win-less apprentice to get a much needed victory

5  Swift Demand

1  Run Over You

4  Lead Stealer

 

race 2    slightly above average clarity

3  Our Bellini Bikini   improved work outs leading up to an improved effort in her latest......really like the 6F drill given to her by O'Neal...should help her endurance

9  Fleet Ryan

8  Sweet Patricia

6  Kakalina

 

race 3    average clarity

6  Victory Dancer   should get a good up close (maybe even on the lead) position in a race that seems as if the early pace will be reasonable.....best drill in quite some time just run by this filly 3 days ago...she appears to be very sharp and ready for best

5  Coracoa Beijo

1  Victoria Reel

7  Birdie Birdie

 

race 4    slightly above averag clarity

5  Marquet Rebel   runs well fresh and her racing profile, that of a mid pack closer, should fit well in this field that seemingly should produce some solid fractions

1  Fiery Trippi

2  Skippy Due

 

race 5    average clarity

4  Swift Winds   solid rider switch to Rosario....has broken 1:34 in his last two races facing some stout fields....2 reassuring works since his latest

5  Ridge Dancer

3  Gothic Samurai

 

race 6    slightly below average clarity

4  Mystery Bird   works suggest this 1ster is ready to roll in her maiden debut.....if she is this is a great spot for any 1st timer with ability because those that have shown what they've got have shown very little

9  Waterside Rose

1  Sportina

10  Lovely Sophia

 

race 7    average clarity

4  Shadow Of Illinois   10 year old should get excellent close up position in a race lacking in front running types...appreciates 4 or 5 weeks between races and gets it

8  Leandros

5  Maui Mark

9  Hey Elvis

 

race 8    above average clarity

5  Zenyatta   will be compromised by a lack of pace in the race and the 129 lbs that she has to carry......but.......small field wll help her get a good trip.....it looks like 17 in a row is likely

3  Zardana

2  St Trinians

 

race 9    average clarity

4  Swiss Ski   consistent sort likes today's distance....but more importantly he sat much closer to the pace in his latest which could come in handy in this field that is lacking in pace and should favor those on or close to the lead

9  Rochelle's Jimmy

6  Youthful Ambition

3  One Vote

 

race 10    slightly above average clarity

5  Donner Wasser   definitely on the right end of the learning curve.....should get a nice ground saving stalk postion once again

10  Catie's Secret

3  Ms Treasure Hunter

1  Bitt A Heat

9  Ready For Crowds
