[private]

Handicappers Corner

Good looking card loaded with quality and betting opportunities.

NOTE   Make sure you want Saturday's pub. as both were available on Friday

 

race 1    average clarity

5  Spring Forth   laid up for 1/3 of a year but training as if well meant in his return to the races.....powerful bad trip wide efforts in both lifetime route races... a ton if ready and gets an OK trip  

4  Dave's Ruler   checked early and ran way wide in last and still snatched 2nd....steps way up but looks to be improving fast

 

race 2    average clarity

4  Runaway Wildcat    4 speed horses and 1 closer in a field of 5....I'll take the closer

3  Gibson Home Run   speed of the speed will earned his victory here if he can wire, duel, or rate off of 3 other speed types

 

race 3    above average clarity

1  Genuine Magic   earned a strong fig with a horrendous trip in her 2 year layoff last....positive rider switch and one race under her belt can smooth her journey out today

4  Warrensmysterydice   horse's history says expect more 2nd out after the layoff and a nice 5F drill 6 days ago supports this

5  Ascot's Highflyer   looking for her maiden debut effort 2 races back which fits fine with the top contenders here

 

race 4    average clarity

2  Never   good opportunity to get a nice mid pack ground saving position behind what looks like a very lively pace

3  Cigar Man  strong late runner wants and may get the blistering pace set by the front runners in his last race

7  Diferentkindagreat   4 2nd's and 4 wins in 8 lifetime races on the AW.....sure is impressive so why add blinkers....would have been top choice if the barn didn't make an equipment change

 

race 5    average clarity

7  Russian River   solid MSW run on the AW 1st time in the Mitchell barn....what's new?.......bred to handle the grass and a route of ground....can be prominent from the get go

3  Charm The Crowd   just missed in MSW debut at Suf....big gaps after her 2nd place finish hints at a solid run at a lessor racing circuit to say the least...strong works and good turf breeding suggest Mandella may have a good one

1  Jax El   filly made a decent move forward in 2nd lifetime start and the dangerous successful team of Sutherland & Abrams reunite here 

5  Lilly's Perfect   fell off a little in her last but her MSW debut 2 back fits just fine versus this group

 

race 6    slightly above average clarity

2  Indian Winter   training as if he is a really nice colt....shows speed and stanima in his works...1ster should be tough

3  Red Sharp Humor   raced on a somewhat dull rail and checked in the stretch and still only lost by 2 in his MSW debut....Bejarano gets off to ride our top pick but P Val will be just fine thank you

1, 1A   ENTRY   both 1/2's of the ENTRY fit just fine here

 

race 7    slightly below average clarity

2  Hammurabi   jock sent out ridiculously fast early in last....Bejarano will be out to make amends with a better job of rating this gelding this time

3  Incurable Lou   has some health issues but lookout if he feels good today....owns some back turf figs that would crush these

7  Nima's Pad   good improve 1st back in his old barn....seems likely to move forward again and that would make him a contender

6  El Crugat   invader has nice grass breeding and is training well

 

race 8    average clarity

4  Jet Blue Girl   bad trip hides a solid layoff run....yet to run a bad sprint race in 4 lifetime endeavors

 8  Samba School   showed speed in sprints on the AW and the grass and there isn't much speed in here.....long layoff but the drills say ready

3  Saint Isabelle   3 solid sprints in 3 2010 races...also appears to have a speed advantage in the race

9  Ebo's Love   moving up the class ladder in leaps and bounds....barn is hot and they have the filly working sharply......gets in light with the app. up 

 

rae 9    slightly above average clarity

2  Antares World    chased a fast pace for a 1 1/4 mile race in her last and still ran a nice 2nd......distinct lack of pace in this highly regarded race gives her a tactical advantage

4  Evening Jewel   look for this fabulous filly to sit just off the pace in a very good reasonably paced position

3  Perfect Shirl   just won a big Grade 2 at Saratoga and earned a nice fig on very firm turf.....that bodes well for her taking to the Dmr grass course 

6  Harmonious   mega move forward in last....may need more pace than anticipated to put in here best stretch run like last last time out

 

race 10    average clarity

2  Carrie Rose   M Mitchell drops to a level her speed can be dominate and carried her all the way to the winners circle

3  Ride A Wave   1st time in the Walsh barn is a very dangerous thing and the Hollywood works support that history...long layoff for Crc invader but ready

6  Rising Honour   long overdo drop or this filly especially considering she has only managed 7 career races in the past 25 months

8  Touch A Dream   decent early speed.....positive rider switch and 2nd out after a layoff is a strong stat for the trainer

10  Real Obvious   checked 3 on the run-up and ran a little wide in her last.......blinkers on to help focus and fits fine in here if the equipment change settles her down
