Hollywood for Thursday 5 May 2011

Saturday's selections will be posted by 5:30 am Pacific time and most likely the night before if all goes well.  



race 1    slightly above average clarity

6  Tamborim 3 straight strong route paces to cope with hides this geldings form.....horrid trip in last wide with pace....controlling speed in this spot

1  Joe Carl loves the Hollywood synthetic and solid at today's distance....back down to a level he can handle

3  Sanquine working at Hol like he appreciates the racing surface......figs/efforts sure fit at this drop down level...decent opportunity to get a nice stalking positing


race 2    average clarity

6  Miss Addy Kiss distance fit a plus for these extended 1 turn races.....good work tab.....solid fits versus these

1  Twodollarstowin usually preforms best with 5 to 7 weeks between races and finally gets it....also has a nice record on the Hollywood synthetic

7  Ballerina Angel been awhile since O'Neill brought one back in 5 days rest so it seems significant for he has the best history of any trainer I have ever examined with such a maneuver

4  Soldier Betty broke a little slow and then checked and then ran 3 wide in layoff run......not too shabby considering she only got beat by 5 lengths.....good shot to move forward and smooth things out......does tend to hang


race 3    average clarity

7  Katelyn N' Jenna seemingly the poorest group of maiden claimers I can remember in 2 or 3 years........this filly at least has good early speed and can get away

5  Shame On Lilly 33 to 1 in mc debut suggests the sprint race was needed....good work tab since....especially like the last work at 6F....route breeding is decent

8  Shootin Breeze good spot to ship into.....proved she can handle two turns running an OK 3rd closing well late on the turf at Tup

3  Touch Luck best of what is left in this weak weak bunch


race 4    average clarity

8  Roman Counsel to me the best time to drop way down is off extended makes claiming a bit too risky for many including yours truly when he owned thoroughbreds in races for this colt are on the Hollywood synthetic.....good work tab

2  Twoatten Tenattwo on the right end of the learning curse and well placed to win

5  Clue Me In made a forward move 2nd out after the extended layoff....can and needs to make another move forward.....2 decent recent drills support this

7  Starcatter last was an obvious turf sprint tune-up off of an 11 month layoff.....and it was quite good....just needs a logical small improvement to compete for the top prize


race 5    average clarity

3  Courtside exits a very fast heat 6+ weeks ago and must feel good because he steps up a couple of training sharply.....turf pedigree seems good enough especially considering this gelding has already won on the AW and the slop...controlling speed here

2  Dancing At Dark very strong finishes last three times sprinting....lousy trip in lone grass race and it was at a route which he seemingly doesn't want 6F drill...should fly late once again

6  Chinese Praise on the improve with every start....decent grass hot start to the Hol meeting for Miller

4  Gnarly Dude showing lots of life in his AW races and bred very niely to handle a turf sprint affair....blazzling recent works for a trainer who usually comes through with a good effort off of stout works


race 6    average clarity

3  Depth powerful fig/effort/improvement 1st time with blinkers....rightfully/smartly steps up...repeat of last should take this unless the distance isn't to his liking

1  Lord Vronsky solid tune-up in a MSW affair....good reassuring work since......trainer is good 1st time with blinkers and even better 1st time at a route

5  Cantona fired a good race turf to dirt (and drop into claiming) last Winter....turf to AW today and more importantly a drop back into maiden claiming

7  Chi Cha Cha useful sprint debut....good bloodlines for route racing


race 7    average clarity

5  Porfido doesn't bother me at all that this nice turf runner keeps dropping because he is 9 years of age.....has been facing better

3  Foolish Comment U S of A debut last was decent especially considering the 1 year layoff.....1 1/4 distance should be right up his alley

6  Victorian Prince toss out pace to close into at all.....another who should appreciate the 1 1/4 mile distance

race 8    average clarity

2  Baby Blake excellent work tab for this 1st why not in MSW affair?.....purchased for only $ why not start for a tag

9  Deejenerit another with a solid work tab....very aggressively hit the track to work every 6 days....rather sure ready....tough post for a 4 1/2 F affair

4  Warren's Lightning works are good enough to possibly be ready to roll in mc debut

8  Respuesta Solida same as above but with a more difficult post to cope with

5  Nebikon not working like the recent 1st time winners from Harrigton but those were in MSW affairs.....trainer is too hot with his babies to ignore
