Hollywood for Friday 3 December 2010


That streak mentioned yesterday about the 1st race each day stayed in tack and now stands at 11 top pick winners.....7 2nd pick winners....and 1 3rd choice winner over the last 19 race-cards. But ironically it may blown today in only a 5 horse race because race 1 is up for grabs


race 1    below average clarity

5  Sea Of Pleasure   not much punch in late stretch but has faced better in all 3 races at 5F on the speed....difficult race...all entered have some chance

1  Taxi Fleet   big step up but 4 1/2 furlong times at LA are solid...lone turf race run at Hol fits fine 


race 2    slightly above average clarity

4  Rockin Hoabour   exits a very fast heat for the level and drops...trainer won 3 yesterday 

2  Make It Cozy   drops out of MSW and this laid up gelding is training as if the trainer is putting some speed into him to be ready for his turn back in distance


race 3    average clarity

4  Gibson Home Run   fresh horse....lone speed.....Miller....P Val...all the ingredients to bake a winner

1  Sammy Choi   race 2 back when Rosario chased was jock will most likely sit off speedball and try to run him down late


race 4    average clarity

5  E. P. Bombay   went way way to fast to the 1/2 in last and tired......race two back was very impressive with strong pace and still able to crush his foes

7  Plantsite   4 of his last 6 starts are very solid for today's level....and rather impressive he was able to do it at multiple distances

4  Manogold   very hot trainer/rider combo...closer should get some pace to fire into late


race 5    average clarity

7  Khendum   best set of drills for a laid up MSW runner for Shirreffs in a long time.....believe we will see best ever today

8  Aprisa Luina   Ellis charge fired 2 solid lifetime efforts last Winter then was put on the say ready off of the long hiatus from the race wars

4  Cry Hallelujah   lone race 1 year ago was a par like effort for today's barn and a good one......another who looks ready off of the long layoff

6  For The Memories   after 2 OK route races Baffert has put some fast drills into this filly trying to can her ready for her 1st lifetime sprint


race 6    average clarity

1  Orangeblackandgold   all 3 lifetime grass races fit fine....1 of only 2 accepted mounts for Mr Gomez...1st route race but a good post and bred for it....should get a nice ground saving chase position

7  Ricketyracketyruss   lone route race albeit on the AW was a solid effort.....bred well to fire on the lawn

8  Anniversary Girl   late runner keeps drawing difficult outside posts.....can fly on by if he gets a clever trip and a little pace up front

2  Sky Angel   shot to get loose on the front end and Atkinson is fairly decent on the lead in two turn races on the sod


race 7    average clarity

3  Queen Martha    looks like lone speed and top jock aboard...Gomez seems in control...a dangerous thing

4  Downhill Diva    two solid races...better than par in only 2 races at a route....can get a very nice chase position....small but high % barn 

5  Vision Of Gold   big day for this filly....very powerful sprints but her 2 route races are nothing special...did run close to very nice world class animals but she did it with a ridiculously slow pace


race 8     slightly above average clarity

9  Five A Day   earned a strong fig for this level in last with a poor trip.....also...race seems set for front runners and this gelding has some speed

3  Golden Augusto   2 straight bad trips...figs fit....and also has has early speed

5  Breakmark   all 3 sprints with fronts on fit and now we get a very positive rider change

6  Blue Cheval   exits a key race albeit 3 months ago.....shot if comes back ready...running for the 22.5K to get weight off hints this isn't a tune-up

1  Swongs   late runner seems compromised by a lack of speed in the race
