Hollywood for Saturday 4 June 2011


Sure wrong about my comment yesterday about this being a good card at first glance. It is a very difficult card. The pick 6 is very difficult and too rich for my blood and that's saying something as my return over the years when I personally play pick 6's is my most profitable return of any wager available. Good Luck if you do play.


race 1    slightly above average clarity

7  Make Mine Remy   stumbled badly at the start and then ran wide and still only lost by 5+ lengths.......drops a little.....same horse/energy with even an average trip can win

2  Free Range   owns some early speed in a spot lacking it....should be legged up enough to get the extended 7 1/2 one turn affair coming off a turf route

6  Zee Chris   decent route races in last 3 and now cuts back to 7 1/2 furlongs.....should have gas left late when others maybe gasping for air

5  Silver Luna   good efforts at 7F only 1/2 furlong less and owns some early foot in a race that lacks speed somewhat....good speed rider in the irons


race 2    average clarity

6  Bestdressed   how many times have we been here before.....Mitchell drops to cut losses....whole career at 7 furlongs fits in this spot and I believe this gelding is still relatively sound

4  Concerto's Thunder   greatly prefers the Hollywood main track over other surfaces....appreciates the extended sprint distance of 7F......owns good speed in an affair lacking it

5  Twoatten Tenattwo   seems like a good claim of an animal in solid form.......trainer is decent 1st after a claim 

2  Star Nicholas     just snatched at the claiming box by Carava who is having a very solid Hollywood meeting....decent stats at the distance and Hollywood


race 3    average clarity

5  Mensa Heat   ultra consistent sort turf or dirt has a nice reliable stalking style

1  He's A Dance Star   only grass win (2 races back) came wire to wire with Bejarano speed in here may get loose

6  Brutally Handsome   nice win fresh off of the bench in last.....will need a forward move today andthe way Puype is going that move in the right direction is likely


race 4    slightly below average clarity

3  Our Lady Gaga    debut 2 back checked 6 or 7 lengths early and still only got beat by 3 in a 5 furlong affair....last race has turned out to be a rather key one...and a positive rider switch

6  Denali Moon   last effort/fig (2 back) on the main track is very strong versus these....1st ever on the AW seems to be the ? mark

13  Black Sox   2 lousy trips in 2 lifetiime races hides the fact this horse can run some

7  Birthday Time   been idle for 1 1/2 years but returns in a higher % barn and is training well enough to be considered ready fresh....MSW debut race was loaded with talent so being beat by only 2 1/2 lengths is impressive


race 5    slightly below average clarity

6  Donato   should be loose here if he takes to the turf and has a shot of wiring....turf pedigree is is the team of Baffert and Rosario

5  Warren's Summergold   decent turf sprinter finally gets to run long on the grass....sure handles a route of ground on the main track

8  Mr. Katz   subtle move forward in last and best preparatory work in quite awhile....might be feeling good

7  Saravas Wild Again  on the improve since claimed by Victor Garcia.....recent solid work hints the trend will continue


race 6    average clarity

9  Hey I'm Sobaa brilliant speed in debut.....a ton today if benefited from that run....P Val on substantial speed is a gooooood thing

6  Angel's Moon   work pattern that screams ready for this debuting MSW for the red hot Headley barn

3  Magic School   has shown lots of life in 2 lifetime races....back to Gomez who is back to riding awfully well 

5  Bench Glory   impressive work series for this 1ster......trainer Sean McCarthy is rather reliable when he shows good works


race 7    average clarity

4  Norvsky   solid horse and solid trainer 3rd out after a layoff....1 for 1 on the Hol grass course at 1 1/16

7  Hyades   terrific figs/efforts when at his peak as if he feels awfully good fresh off of a long hiatus from the track  

1  Dahoud   owns tactical speed and gets a good post to help ensure a good ground saving trip from Rosario

6  Atticus Jack   very sharp right now and sure has been impressive in 1st 2 (overdo) route turf races which were both at 1 mile.......1st ever at 1 1/16 today...


race 8    average clarity

1  Twirling Candy   best set of drills from Sadler in many a moon.....quality runner is the one to beat but he does catch some tough foes doesn't looks like a 4-5 shot.......I'd say fair value is about 8-5

6  Soul Candy   monster run/fig/effort last Fall 1st ever on the AW and it was at Hol....then sat way too far off a ridiculously slow pace....his big Fall win came off a 2 month break.....just past 2 months off this time...decent bombshell

7  Setsuko   big near miss in the Sah-G1 which I didn't see great and proven on the AW....rather sure going to fire another good effort

8  Honour The Deputy   broke poorly in 1st ever on the AW in a Grade 2 affair at Hollywood 4 weeks ago and still only got beat by less then 2 lengths....good history back in 3 or 4 weeks like today....needs pace up front and might get it


race 9    below average clarity

10  Running Isabella   drops once again....sure fits if relative health remains intact

7  She's All Yours   good efforts when takes back some and I believe that is what Gomez will do in this spot that has lots of cheap speed

4  Warren's Ruhlar   flashed a quick quarter in last that sure seems to make him the speed of the speed here....shot to wire

9  Unbridled Thoughts   last sure looks like the gimme to be full throttle for her 2nd out after the layoff and go go go

8  Suances Star   trainer was dangerous a couple of years ago with horses shipping in with their good works occurring elsewhere (Alb, Sun, Tup).....might be well meant 1ster 

15 Follow The Crowd....16  Napote (tie for 6th)    both horses have tough posts but seem poised to show more then they have been showing 

Note: no morning favorite in my selections because I believe he has gone off form....trouble if I'm wrong
