Hollywood for Sunday 8 May 2011


Race 1: (Average Clarity)
7 - Bayona - claimed as the chalk in debut and moved way up..major jock switch and projected stalking trip make her the choice
1 - Mavicsa - like the improved work with lasix and jock change..needs to break clean
5 - Brooklyn Rose - needs more pace than anticipated..will be motoring late

Race 2: (Average Clarity)
6 - No Mistress - off over a year but training well..lone turf try very solid
7 - Mizdirection - surprising strong debut at 21-1..well bred for her turf debut
8 - Platinum Mine - try to catch me
3 - So Tempted - best effort was debut on synthetic..expect she will like turf off layoff

Race 3: (Slightly Below Average Clarity)
2 - Clarke Lane - just missed in stateside debut despite slow break..expect him to be closer this time which gives him the edge in very competitive race
3 - Burns - looks to be the true closer in this small field

Race 4: (Average Clarity)
4 - Attar of Rose - proven fresh and both wins have come at this the works
2 - El Nadia - 3rd start of the cycle and the best Top Turf Today figs..doesn't like to win and the last 1/16th might be a problem
7 - Bellini Bliss - Gaines having a solid year and I expect this lightly raced 4 yr old to move forward here
1 - Samba School - has a reasonable chance to wire this field

Race 5: (Average Clarity)
8 - Husky Glory - cuts tag more than 1/2 for second lifetime start..strong work last week..should get a good stalking trip
6 - Moreno Sky - last not as bad as it looks and also drops in price..big jock switch
10 - Preferred Mandate - consistent sort has been slowly improving..will need a little jump to compete for the win
9 - Charlie'sboywins - strong move forward 1st time on the AW..a similar move puts him right there

Race 6: (Slightly Above Average Clarity)
6 - Startjumpin Marnie - no pace to run at in last, should not be the case that Nakatani stays aboard
8 - Megaspiel - keeps getting better..2 solid works since last and a projected stalking trip give her a big shot
1 - Madera Castana - normally do not like 1st time South Americans, but works too good to ignore
2 - Jet Blue Girl - ran huge at GP..plenty of time to recover and Raffy climbs aboard

Race 7: (Average Clarity)
3 - Lit de Bet - moves back to preferred surface off 2 good works..should get a good rail trip
7 - Fairway Road - should get a dream stalking trip outside cheap speed..a little leery about the price drop
2 - Dish the Dirt - another who returns to the preferred AW and gets the hot riding T Baze
8 - Appealing Afare - moved in the right direction in last..has some back figs that would dominate this field

Race 8: (Average Clarity)
7 - Victory Pete - comes back in 3 weeks after only 2 races in the last 1.5 years..last was much better than it looked..owns big past Top Turf Today figs
5 - Coffee Boy - interesting scratch from yesterday's small field AW stakes to debut on turf breeding but respect connections
2 - Compari - returns to Gomez who won 5 straight on him..needs to avoid speed duel

Race 9: (Slightly Below Average Clarity)
1 - Capt. Sparrow - drops off the claim but 1 for 1 at the trip and trainer could use a winner
6 - Seven Secrets - always respect Pedroza on the best speed
2 - Low Gear Power - needs more pace than anticipated but if he gets it, look out
4 - Troubletimesthree - consistent sort doesn't like to win but sure does like to hit the board
12 - Just Heat - needs a clever ride from Flores to compete for top honors
