Del Mar for Friday 27 August 2010

Handicappers Corner

Decent looking card today in that I don't see too many animals outside our selections as major factors.



race 1    slightly above average clarity

6  Not Here   2 straight powerful efforts/figs on the grass on Top Turf today and proven on the AW

3  Love That Melody   blocked in the stretch or may have won.....Walsh is usually better 2nd out after the layoff

5  Zippin E   1st time in the Mitchell barn is a dangerous tab says ready


race 2    slightly above average clarity

1  Devil's Mate   nice series of drills for this laid up filly......catches a weak looking bunch

8  La Rapidez   last was a turf leg her up gimme to help her endurance on the significant drop out of MSW into the bottom level mc

3  Misstrailcityzone   need to see his race 3 back to compete for the win

4  Nine Rails   can be loose on the lead....will need lifetime best to hand on


race 3    average clarity

2  Camp Victory    very hot outfit....flattens at 1 1/16th miles and is 1 for 1 in the win column at 1's distance

6  Lyons Barton   has done very little wrong in 2 lifetime grass efforts....Rosario fits and knows this gelding well

1  California Soldier   big 5 length win 1st after the claim for Sadler was impressive....steps way up but must be feeling good.....bred decently for the sod

8  Fandino   has flashed big speed in turf sprints.....bred to get a mile....P Val will be looking to clear and wire


race 4    average clarity

9  Skippy Due   barn is heating up and they are 2 for 2 win with this claimer....once again should get a mid pack or stalking position

1  Candy Coat    whole 10 race career fits decently for today's level....that's consistency

12  One Vote   another consistent sort who gets a very positive rider switch

6  Smooth And Savvy   exits a fast heat with a bad trip and still snatched 3rd......seems to appreciate the Dmr synthetic....does tend to hang a little


race 5    average clarity

5  Gripsholm Castle   solid chase position behind speed that may tire late

4  Restless Soul   steady performer faces somewhat easier

7  Laura Beasley   very big last....fig fits....distance is the ? mark

6  Princess Taylor   loose on the lead but needs a little more staying power


race 6    average clarity

2  Touch A Dream   2nd out after the layoff......a strong stat for barn....positive rider switch too

7  Blue Tango   solid improve in last both final time and pace

8  Sign In   good speed here and P Val...a deadly combo thru the years...feels like we are in a time warp

4  Ms Cecile   works sure look good for a mc 1st on the AW bottom level runner


race 7    above average clarity

7  Daylumney   big fig in lone grass race in the U S of A on T T Today......barn is hot so my guess is this laid up filly is ready

2  Ruination    suicidal pace in last did her in.....good shot to wire the field

4  Calle Vista   blocked in stretch in last or could have won by 1 or 2 lengths

9  Americas Dreaming   nice horse fits well but a major league hanger so far


race 8    average clarity

12  Call Me Later   useful debut run...blinkers on and the work suggest this colt likes the new equipment...expecting more in 2nd lifetime run

6  Swiss Hero   press a fast quarter and stuck around for 2nd....believe Bejarano will take back a little off our 5th choice to save something

14  Graydle's Red   good debut at 55 to 1 (probably surprised barn too)  and should get pace to run at in a move forward

2  Opinionated   1st timer is bred to be ready at two and training like he is

9  Tahoe Yodeler   here's your wire to wire attempt
