Del Mar for Friday 20 August 2010


Handicappers Corner

Not the easiest of cards to decipher. Quite a few contenders in every race. Make sure you have printed the correct day in that I am posting both Friday's and Saturday's pubs. on Friday.


race 1    average clarity

4  Sky Marni    Mitchell just claimed and all he needs to do is keep this horse's form the same to win this...and as you know most of them improve

2  Moonshine Alice   fresh and dangerous speed has a shot to wire

5  Ultra Awesome   just snatched at the claiming box and wheeled back has a good history with short rest


race 2    average clarity

1  Social Event   filly has shown plenty of run/desire in both lifetime races......closer is bred to appreciate the extra half furlong the babies have to run today

2  Missilette   flashed best pace and final time to date in last....repeat of that effort makes her solid here

4  Desperate Measures   good move forward in 2nd lifetime barn takes over and makes a positive rider switch...well maybe.....M Garcia has cooled off some 


race 3    average clarity

4  Onenightin Beijing    has trained great on the AW for 3 months but elected to race on the sod for his MSW......don't think he cared for it too much

6  Steve's Blue Sky   best looking work tab for a 1ster from the Neil French barn in many a moon.....believe he's got a good one

7  Come Home Lady   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime start in a race run on the turf.... good chance for the top prize if he keeps the trend going on the AW....positive rider change helps


race 4    average clarity

5  Fortyfivewithruby    strong move forward in last...that effort or better makes her the one to beat in this bunch

3  Indiara   declining filly probably has one or two more good efforts in her ...bred OK to handle a mile on the AW

9  Kaysa Deeya   decent chance to sit in a good chase position behind our 4th choice

4  Good Friday Gal   P Val once again will try to clear.... get loose...... and..........go..........all..........the...............way 


race 5   average clarity

1  Unico Lider   solid credentials for overseas ARG laid up very strongly for a guy like Vienna who doesn't push them too hard in the mornings

9  Winter Camp    speed rider....speed trainer and a very fast animal....may never look back

4  Unionize   highly consistent sort will most likely get a nice ground saving chase position

6  Square Deal   only 1 length behind Quick Enough at the wire and he came back and almost beat the monster that is California Flag 

Note:  number 5 is my 4th pick if number 9 elects not to draw into the field 


race 6    below average clarity

7  Looking For Candy    long hiatus from the track but comes back in a new barn and drops to the bottom.....not the same MSW horse he was but probably good enough to be tough here

9  Syllabus   good looking work series for a guy like C Sise who wins at a  high % with m c 1sters

1  Single Shot   two straight somewhat hidden bad trips in a row....blinkers on to help focus his good early speed potential......1/2 furlong less fits well

10 Sea Viper   another who should appreciate the speed friendly 5 1/2 F distance with his solid early speed


race 7    average clarity

7  La Nez   in good form and her T T Today fig for her only turf race is solid here considering she ran it in the Fall of her 2 year campaign

4  Warren's Jitterbug   believe needed her last even though she won her layoff last...should be in top form today

6  Fortunia   rank and lots of trouble in last...toss it out.....just missed beating the terrific Wasted Tears in her previous at LS

8  True Religion   dangerous sprinter has shown ample run and competitivenessin both lifetime starts on the main her chances to appreciate the turf in that she ran well on dirt slop and the Dmr AW....that shows versatility....bred well enough to get a mile


race 8    average clarity

10  Olympicc Magic   last 2 races are better then they appear on paper.....drills are sharp....sitting on a strong effort today

11  Pride Of Wilshire   barn is awakening and this gelding has been competitive in all 5 lifetime races....positive rider switch as well

5  Pious David   big shot if this declining animal has another race left in him

3  Absolute Magnitude   lookout if this gelding fires his race 2 back  (solid effort/fig) which was run with 21 days of rest....21 days of rest today

2  Happy Hedger   over a one year layoff but training as if he is ready to roll fresh off of the bench for a small but capable outfit
