Hollywood for Saturday 26 November 2011


O.K. race card today.

A little twist to things today. Besides the long-shot in the 3rd we gave out I think the 2 in the 1st, the 8 in the 2nd, and the 7 in the 4th all have a shot to get a slice of the gimmick pie and maybe even upset the apple cart.


race 1    slightly below average clarity

4  Memo To Kathy   likes Hollywood......likes 6 1/2 furlongs.......proven fresh.........likes to run in close contact to the front end and it sure looks as if she can in this spot

1  Queen Marini   another who likes Hollywood and the distance......running in her lowest level affair in quite awhile

6  Lily Amore   not much of a racehorse anywhere but at Hollywood


race 2    average clarity

2  Lord's Minister   solid 1st ever on the sod at GG in of 11 lengths to 3rd....should be prominent from the get go

6  Twin Six   good stretch run into a soft pace in turf MSW debut last.......nice works since.......bred fine to get the distance

4  Fordham Road   talk about a breaking out party for Shirreffs yesterday......trainers often win in bunches so this well bred 2nd time starter is likely to be ready today fresh off of the bench

1  Silver Dragon   solid 1st ever on the grass in last......jock doesn't get many chances on the turf or this one would have been rated higher


race 3    average clarity

8  Spedway Monkey   not much in last on conventional dirt.....previous which was her MSW debut was on the Dmr AW is is very strong and somewhat hidden

2  Autumn View   aggressive tightly spaced work series for this Mulhall 1st timer...sure seems ready to roll

3  Twelve Folds   decent MSW debut and a reassuring work-out since.......same or better puts her in the hunt once again

6  Belloma   work tab hints that this 1ster has a shot at being prepared well enough to compete for the top prize in her MSW debut

Possible Bomber:   4  Willow Switch     pushed out very wide in last hides a 3rd move forward......1st on the AW but bred well to handle it....can fly late if she gets some heat up front


race 4    average clarity

2  Victorian Prince   runs well with ample time between starts and gets it........logical drop to 25K should make him stout

1  Miles Heir   invader is improving by leaps and bounds and ran 2nd to a monster of a claimer in last which was at Pen.......1st on the sod but bred for it......excellent work series for Mulhall trainee

8  Porfido   seems to rebound off of dull efforts.......runs well when gets 4 to 5 weeks between races and that is the case here

6  El Merito   laid up for nearly 1/2 year but is training as if he is returning an improved horse


race 5    average clarity

8  Plenty Of Henny   just claimed and his new conditioner puts Bejarano up who is 1 for 1 on the horse......also 1 for 1 on the synthetic  and 3 for 4 overall.....should range up nicely into a good stalk position

6  Warren's Clyde   deep closer gets ample pace to flatter his late kick

2  Nate Dawg   very fast early....should open up a lead.....1st ever on the AW with decent pedigree for it

1  Yes It's Snowing   exits a key race.....stepping up quite a bit.....and a difficult post at 6 1/2 furlongs...... or would have rated higher


race 6    average clarity

7  Carbonite   Mitchell has turned this hard hitting gelding into quite the competitor since he handles Hol and likes 6 furlongs....race seems to have enough pace to aid his late kick

8  Euroears   both lifetime races on the AW are very impressive....should be prominent from the get go

4  Canonize   laid up a long time but well proven fresh and training great....gets in light

3  Quiet Invader   best ever in last and likes Hollywood.......a ton if manages to move forward off of lifetime best and still competes if runs the same effort as he did in his latest


race 7    average clarity

3  Ten Devils   broke MSW in debut run so fresh off of the bench seems like a good thing....seemingly ample pace in this affair to help his late running style

1  Thinking Of Girls   earned a very strong fig in latest chasing a big pace in last.......o for 1 on the grass but it was his lifetime debut.....easily deserves another shot on it with a decent pedigree to handle it

4  Blue Jay Attack   seems to fire his best at Hol and with 3 to 4 weeks between starts.....that is today's scenario

7  Mandated Bliss   popped an awfully big race in last and fits fine in this spot if that significant effort didn't take it's toll


race 8   slightly above average clarity

6  Red Ace   Baffert is solid 3rd out after layoffs.....this colt impressed me in last dueling in nasty pace and still sticking around till very late......should be very fit to handle the extended sprint distance of 7F

5  Smart Spending   nice return to the races in last getting blocked or would have won this race level in latest......good work tab since....same or better likely today

4  Leothelion   finally gets to race with relatively short rest and his running lines say that is a big positive

3  Clear   decent debut back in August but will need to fire a bit more today......solid work tab for top connections so he might be up to the task


race 9    average clarity

5  War Element   positive rider switch for this talented Gaines charge on the correct end of the learning curve.....gets in light and Rosario can make the weight

4  Leroy's Dynameaux   another with a positive rider change and a lot of weight off.....Bejarano also can make the weight.....very impressive recent grass work

9  John Johny Jak   great chance to stalk a suspect leader in the 7 horse who should be loose but has weak turf breeding and I think wouldn't handle it well enough to take advantage of his loose this very consistent horse might get the garden spot in the race

2  Jeranimo   talented horse gets a positive rider change but is giving up a lot of weight to his competition for me to place him any higher then 4th


race 10    slightly above average clarity

6  Nonrefundable   fired well at Hol versus better in MSW debut in April....fresh today drops and training well ....trainer is fairly hot

11  Seek The Light   last is solid 1st out for Eurton.......likely to show even more 2nd out under his tutelage

4  Just Jumped In  decent return to the races in last at SA.....lifetime best is his only race at Hollywood......seems primed and ready for his return to what might be his favorite racing surface

10  Crestatore   blinkers off seems like a good move for his new conditioner.......solid back numbers........and training radically better for his new trainer

14  Bigbari   lone race at Hollywood is quite good....did blow a 3 length lead late at 6 1/2F...1/2F less to run today

13  One Bad Boy   on the improve since the blinkers were put on 4 races ago....another forward move gives him a small chance at the circle of joy
