Hollywood for Saturday 10 July 2010


Handicappers Corner

Oops...Hollywood races next week....Yesterday I said Del Mar started next week....I can read the form but I guess I'm not so hot reading a Calender


Recommended pick 3 part wheel starts in the 4th race

3,5,6 with 1,5,7,8,9 with 4,8    30 bets


race 1    average clarity

8  Tweebster   has enough speed to clear and wire the field...unbelievable hot trainer/rider combo

5  Squad   showed he is a legit racehorse in last...1st turf and bred fine for it...1st time long is a concern

4  Brave Zulu   not too many trainers are capable of getting a 1ster ready to run competitively in a route race in their MSW debut...Mandella is and they drills say ready

2  Hog's Hollow   needs a move forward and may get it with 1st time Bejarano shooting for the riding title


race 2    average clarity

10  Chavez Ravine   big works say ready fresh off of the bench....good on or near the lead position

4  My Man Murf   seems to appreciate the somewhat specialist distance of 7F........7F today

3  Changing   another who runs well at 7F.....needs to rebound a little and may..small but dangerous barn 

8  One Vote   bounced back some in last...very dangerous if shows better once again


race 3    average clarity

3  Movie Duty   last two races with blinkers off are impressive....loose today with top gun on her back

2  Saanneen   good win in return to the race wars......deservedly steps up....feels good most likely...can once again get a nice chase position

6  Tiz Folly   toss out last.....she was very washy...race 2 back fits fairly well...that washy excusable clunker in her last will help today's price


race 4    slightly above average clarity

5  Z Z Warrior   no brainerfor top pick drills for this 1stertimer and Baff jock for barn aboard

3  Donato   no brainer no. 2...more big drills from another Baffert 1ster

6  Apriority   Gary Mandella has been hot of late...this colt needs to rebound......and sprinting may make that happen.....MSW debut 4 back was a hugh bad trip effort


race 5    slightly above average clarity

1  Sir Dave   smartly drops to earn his jock stays along for the ride

8  No Dream   another dropping to a more appropriate level

9  Grey Storm   very sharp GG invader has done little wrong on the sod...beat a solid 20K group at GG

5  Victorian Prince  will be on or near the lead from the get go....may show much more than last when he acted up at the gate


race 6    slightly above average clarity

4  Gayego   absolutely loves the Hollywood surface and isn't too shabby elsewhere as well

8  New Bay   broke bad and ran a little wide and still won 1st time for Mitchell at today's extremely well especially for a guy like M Mitchell.....6 less lbs today

1  E Z's Gentleman   impressive Grade 3 run in last...very sharp animal has a difficult post to cope with...but barn has been magical

3  M One Rifle    MikeSmith has a shot to slow things down up front and if he does he may............go..........all.........the.............way 


race 7    average clarity

3  Mallinson Road   NZinvader was really getting good until he bled in his last overseas start...1st Lasix today and training up a storm for 1st time Hollendorfer

1  Seattle Ruler   in very sharp form albeit on the AW......1st ever on the grass but the pedigree says yes I can

11  Amazombie   fresh off the bench and that is usually a good thing for this gelding...closer needs a great ride from M Smith from the difficult outer-most post

9  Street Car   on the improve on the well for that Bafert guy...OK grass breeding


race 8    above average clarity

4  Richard's Kid   loves the classic 1 1/4 mile distance....and finally gets a small field to aid in finding a ground saving trip that should end in a big big close

6  Rail Trip   smooth beautiful runner will sit behind a couple of speed horses most likely...pass and try to hold off Baffert's monster...hard for me to split top 2 picks

3  Awesome Gem   will need very best and a good trip to upset the top pair...barn has woken up lately


race 9    slightly above average clarity

1  Cadillac   faced better in last 2 and ran credibly....late runner seemingly gets pace to close into

4  Nevada Worrier   both race fit since the layoff.....question is does he have another good run left in him...2 or 3 races usually knocks him out 

5  Majestic Diamond   owns some stout/better back figs that would clobber these...3rd after the layoff may awaken

6  Sea Of Pleasure   rocket will be loose and try to hang own


race 10    average clarity

12  Rock 'N Rule   good return to the races off a long hiatus from the race track in 2nd lifetime start....solid if moves forward at all

6  Quintons Flash   last looks like the gimme to cut claiming price in 1/2 and go go go in 2nd lifetime endeavor

10  Swingin Jim   new barn and eye popping drills out of nowhere....always a dangerous thing

14  Jacobs Bro   laid up horse but red hot barn

7  Highest Honors   wound up 1ster with tightly spaced drills may be an up-setter
