Hollywood for Friday night 8 July 2011


 So so card this evening but Saturday is full of quality and appears very playable. Good luck to all!


race 1    average clarity

4  Van Brit   stepped up a notch in last and it sure seems like a good sign he steps up again.......5 for 9 at today's distance

1  El Nadia   seems best at Hol.....seems best at 1 mile........and hasn't missed a beat in the mornings....smartly steps up a notch

3  Holy Flapper   laid up filly is training sharp and owns 1 win and 1 second on the Hollywood grass course in 2 races on it.....nice history firing off of layoffs


race 2    slightly above average clarity

5  Unusual Jazz   broke slowly, checked on the run-up, and ran wide.....had the horse losing 8+ lengths and yet only got beat by 1+....should handle small step up with the same effort and at least an average journey from gate to wire

4  Joker Face    back to Bejarano and back to a sprint....significant (somewhat glaring) large drop out of MSW....very solid here if still in relative good health 

7  Tiz Victorious   decent debut with little support at the windows suggests this 1ster wasn't that cranked up for debut and there is a good shot at more horse today

6  Wheels Of Fortune   has been vanned off in 2 of 5 lifetime starts but his recent works hint he is feeling better and his last was a somewhat hidden improvement


race 3    average clarity

1  Exuma    solid improvement in last....his 1st run for his new trainer M. Jones.....highly likely to show even more 2nd out after the layoff

2  Trueno   sure is training much more aggressively of late.....believe this gelding is feeling good and poised for a 2nd consecutive move forward

7  Warren's Warehouse   works suggests Sadler means business in 2nd out under his care....very dangerous 

4  Warren's Kong   lousy trip in last and still managed to finish up well.....Alicea will be out to make amends


race 4    slightly below average clarity

3  Jet Set Girl   5 year old 1st timer hints that she is quick and has a good foundation put into her to get the extended sprint distance of 7F

6  Tribal Charm   debut race back in Feb was rather decent...long layoff but sure trains as if she is ready fresh off of the bench as she was in her debut

9  Sunburn   broke slowly and rushed some displaying good early speed in her debut......P Val sticks around.....shot to wire

8  Russian Bayou   wasn't all that cranked up for her layoff run in last so that race was probably needed and we should see a forward move today


race 5    slightly below average clarity

5  Justincredible   sharp recent works for a horse competing in the low rent district....good speed in a race that lacks it and a solid speed jock aboard

4  Misinjennuous   recent 3F speed work and a capable 10 lb apprentice up......very dangerous in a race lacking much speed

10  Dish The Dirt   needs 1 to 3 months between starts for her best and gets it.....closer is hoping for more pace up front than anticipated

1  Gotham Spirit   see hints of a gimme/gimme/go and Moger is quite good 3rd out after a layoff


race 6    average clarity

5  Cadillac Coach   on the improve and sure is working as if another forward move is about to occur

1  Songfoya   impressive layoff near miss in last.....2 reassuring drills since....highly likely to fire another strong effort...maybe even more

9  Dos Bomberos   appears to need ample time between starts and Sadler gives it to him......good series of 5 and 6 furlong drills hints he won't drift in the stretch this time and should have plenty of endurance to get the added 1 furlong

2  Warren's Dr. Yang   won last easily despite a poor trip......also is training sharply as if a needed forward move can occur


race 7    average clarity

4  Dance With Gable   hard to argue with 4 out of 6 at the distance and all his figs on The Racing Digest's Top Turf Today are better than par in those 6 races

7  Aliza's Dream   solid lone race at 6 furlongs on the sod at Hollywood 2 back....just claimed and the new trainer makes a positive rider switch

5  Casual Obsession   small but capable barn got a nice win 1st after the claim at GG out of this gelding...solid effort/fig....1st on the turf today but bred fine to handle recent bullet drill.....dangerous


race 8    average clarity

8  Filly Power   solid move forward 1st time blinkers in last and good works since.....only needs repeat of last to be tough here

3  Delilah Jones   both lifetime runs are decent and she owns some speed.....a good commodity to have in these abbreviated mc sprints

1  Rags For Ben   2 straight good races....can a 1 for 72 trainer in 2011 make it three in a row....hard not to root for him 

2  Tiz Final   showed some life in lone race run way back in well enough to be ready

5  Three Cuties

10 Random Luck
