Hollywood for Friday 12 July 2013

[private]

Decent card this afternoon and Saturday's appears to be very nice both in quality and handicapping clarity.

 Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

5  Stoneside    Canani is rather hot in general and he is winning at a 45% clip with his last 38 runners dropping one level.....last fits......more would be icing on the cake

3  Big Note    declining horse but he probably has a few decent efforts left in him.....should be in the hunt from the get go with seemingly only our 3rd choice to deal with in the early stages

2  Inflamed Spirit   both lifetime scores have come on significant drop downs......alw race to 10K sure meets that criteria

 

race 2    slightly above average clarity

4  Miss Ellany   looks loose on the lead here with a good speed jock up who won 4 yesterday vaulting him into the mix for the riding title......two sharp works since her last suggests 3rd out after the layoff will be a strong forward moving effort

3  High Jinks   Brazil invader comes in with solid credentials and he sure is training as if he is 100% meant and ready for his U S of A debut for Avila who is quite good 1st out with overseas invaders

 

race 3    average clarity

7  Snowmass Village    working better than anyone else in the field.....seems like a great spot for a 1st timer and the conditioner is quite good with mc debut runners

1  Brighton Star   another 1st timer working well enough to be a factor in this weak looking group

4  Western Showdown   not exactly moving forward.......but lookout if this colt can rebound to his debut 3 races back

3  Grand Pulpit

 

race 4    slightly above average clarity

2  Cinco de Mario    3 of last 4 grass races stand out here for this laid up O'Neill runner who sure is working as if he is ready to roll off of the 7 month hiatus from racing

1  Mikey T   improving sort drops out of MSW racing like our top pick to enhance his chances to visit the circle of joy.....good post and a hot trainer in Puype

6  Our Lucky Son   bad trip in last hides a better than par effort......also dropping from MSW racing......fits nearly as well as our top 2 choices but he has a small tendency to hang in the stretch

5  Dontextndrive

Long-shot possibilities:   4  Rocabar    both route races without the blinkers on are rather good.......hated blinkers on so toss out lone grass race as they were on for the race.....1st time gelding today and the recent drills suggest the ultimate equipment change will improve this Barba runner.......decent turf pedigree

 

race 5    average clarity

6  Salt Tequila Lime   broke fine in MSW debut four races back.....horrid leaving the gate in next three races.....two gate works since his last might help......potentially a ton here if breaks cleanly or only breaks a couple lengths slow leaving the metal monster

7  My Best Turn   broke slowly and blocked a couple on the run-up.........somewhat hides a good effort in her maiden debut.........two reassuring works since.......can be tough here if she puts out the same effort and gets a decent trip

2  Tiz Anna   fell off in latest......needs a rebound........1st time Bejarano should enhance her chances of bouncing back

1  Party Bus

 

race 6    slightly above average clarity

2  Glorious Luck    earned a powerful real number and a powerful trip adjusted number in her MSW debut.........continues to work like a happy healthy young filly who should remain tough at today's step up

1  Tangerine Tickle   off for over one and one half years but working as if she is as good as new.......won her MSW debut impressively at Hol and at 6F on the sod

3  Luxuriance    nice rebound back on the Hol 6F grass course which she sure has appreciated in her 3 lifetime races on it.....and today we get a rider upgrade to Stevens who seems to be only riding "live" horses

 

race 7    slightly below average clarity

3  A Day Away   never really run a bad race on the synthetic in 5 lifetime starts on it and 4 of which were at today's 1 1/16th distance......and today is the ever dangerous 1st time gelding play

6  Twin Six   last fits well but I am a little concerned by no works showing since this gelding's last

2  Amp and Adrenalin   last might have been a gimme of sorts......but even if it wasn't this Mulhall runner ran over his head too much.......back where belongs today and back in 12 days

 

race 8    average clarity

2  Concave   1st timer is training as if O'Neill is all business in his MSW debut......like his grass pedigree........good post and his works suggest he has some early foot

7  Sierra Electrica   very good grass breeding for this Mulhall 1st timer and the filly draws the meets top jock to date in Talamo

9  Amy Jane   good work regiment for this Miller 1ster who sure has been sending out his babies ready to roll at 1st asking........seems to own an adequate grass pedigree

3  Quick Navigator

1  Charissa
