Oak Tree at Hollywood for Sunday 10 Oct 2010


Recommended Play:
'1st race pick 4: 2,5 with 1,2,6 with 2,4,6 with 2,3,5    54 combinations

Race 1 - Slightly Above Average Clarity
5 - Star Presence - just missed with a wide trip in 1st try at 2 turns..small field should help make the third time the charm
2 - Ricketyracketyruss - expensive claim by Sadler who is off to a hot start.. should handle distance and excellent work series says ready

Race 2 - Slightly Below Average Clarity
1 - Miles Long Gone - troubled trip in debut vs MSW..drops to claimers 2nd out off strong works, huge angles for Hollendorfer
6 - Tak Gamo - ultimate equipment change (gelding) since debut..solid small barn appears to have this one ready at a nice price
2 - Dancing at Dark - claimed by Sadler out of a key race where he dueled a solid pace..might be controlling speed or get 1st jump on the suspect # 7

Race 3 - Average Clarity
2 - Pleasing Sunrise - projected ground saving trip and solid pace in front should set things up nicely for her powerful close
6 - Sugarinthemorning - was not embarrassed in G1 company in last after strong debut win..rates to get good stalking trip
4 - Gab Power - won debut at HOL..has been competitiive since..another who should get a good stalking trip

Race 4 -Average Clarity
3 - Circa'sgoldengear - off since February but training solid and steady..decent break could see a wire-to-wire effort in a race lacking apparent speed
2 - Crispy Corey - showed better early life in last, first try in nearly 4 months..expecting even more 2nd out
5 - Urban Hunter - improved last couple of works and Moger sees fit to ship this firster down from GG

Race 5 - Average Clarity
3 - A Clever Ten - best races have come at this trip, on this course and with Raffy up..'nuf said
1 - Tamerin - try to catch me
7 - Neeko - respectable 1st turf try off a 6 month that she is stepping up after a strong interim work series
2 - Desert Flight - other Mitchell trainee should relish return to lawn and ground saving trip..a little concerned that 6F appears to be the edge of her range

Race 6 -Below Average Clarity
1 - Jacob's Tiger - very strong work series for his return to the race wars..drops in class and distance, and gets back his winning jock
6 - Purse Luva - Carava claim one of two that owns a win at this trip..3rd start in current cycle..jockey/trainer combo has a high win % in limited tries
8 - Warren's Dove - here's your wire-to-wire attempt with the apprentice up
3 - Good Brother - probable chalk looks tough on paper, but I am not a big fan of relatively short rest off two FPX races

Race 7 - Above Average Clarity
5 - Burg Berg - should get the dream stalking trip and pounce in the stretch
2 - Value Stream - ran a close 3rd at this trip and level in June..Top Turf figure in 7/24 DMR race right there with top pick..bullet work

Race 8 - Slightly Below Average Clarity
3 - Format V - steadily improving 3 yr old rates to get a good midpack trip and fly in the stretch..really like 4 works since last
4 - Maybe Yes - 1 for 1 at HOL..showed improved pace in last but may not have liked 2 turns and dirt..2 bullets since
2 - Streakin' Mohican - Bejarano takes over this inside speed horse.. A little concerned about the distance but should be able to save ground
6 - Pinal - probable favorite will attempt to wire..not sure AW is his preferred surface

Race 9 - Average Clarity
5 - Tizalwaysomething - never easy to run well long in debut..good works since, tactical speed and Raffy
3 - Zippin E - 2nd time Mitchell charge has woken up last two..lone turf start only fair but solid turf breeding says potential is there
1 - Kicken Off - big improvement in last..due for a clean trip and if she gets it, look out
9 - Zohrah - been right there with strong Top Turf figs in both turf starts..will need to work out a trip first time in an outside post
2 - Dubawi Heights - don't often see a maiden who has earned over $380k..beaten chalk in U.S. debut could be a monster or a fraud
