Del Mar for Sunday 27 July 2014

Selections for today are by Dave Gordon


Race 1 Average Clarity
11 Tribalist - Closer should have plenty of pace to run at, Track has been playing fairer the last few days, so big shot despite tough post
3 What a View - New shooter has been working lights out and breeding is fine. Cold jock and trainer both due to wake-up
9 Badasmywifeletsmeb - Capable of big speed and that is always dangerous
2 Bookworm
Longshot 4 Criminal Element - High percentage trainer ships from NM with this well bred firster. Impressive local work 7/16


Race 2 Average Clarity
2 Princess Bertrando - return to the AW and drop from stakes company should both help her. Jockey upgrade is a bonus
7 Take It Easyplease - Solid debut and has worked well since. Should improve second out and with move to AW.
9 Soul Flyer - Might have a tough time getting there from this post at this distance but too much potential to ignore.
3 Wackey Logic


Race 3 Average Clarity
2 Welcome Home Ryan - Last looks like a gimme to go today. Has some speed in a race lacking it.
3 Friendly Banter - AP shipper shoud get dream rail trip as the 1 & 2 look to be only speed in race.
6 Woodmans Luck - would not play this deep closer on top, but hard to leave him out underneath
7 Tenkiller Kid
Longshot 4 Dr. Spin - interesting that Perez lands here instead of the 1. Improved pace in last and a solid work since


Race 4 Slightly Below Average Clarity
3 Passionville - Projects to get a good stalking trip behind the 2 & 4. Raffy is due to get hot.
5 Sweet Boss - Best race by far was last year on the AW. Returns there off a very strong work series
1 Tiz a Kiss - Likes the track and the distance. Deep closer should save all the ground and fly in the stretch.
7 Chati's On Top


Race 5 Above Average Clarity
1 Rock Me Baby - just missed in this event last year. comes off a dirt top followed by 2 big drills, all systems go - play of the day
4 Starspangled Heat - also was close in this last year, 3rd off a long layoff with strong works since last, price play
8,10,12 Unusual Heatwave, Mega Heat, Ethnic Dance - Could throw a hat over them when last seen and the same is true here


Race 6 Slightly Below Average Clarity
3 Betty Bing Bing - Tough to win first start agaisnt winners, but best career race was debut at DMR, improvement off last gives big shot
2 Adriatic Style - Sadler (among others) has been aggressive with drops off claims, fits well here and should get a good rail trip
12 Nothing But Air - Last looks like a workout off the 10 month hiatus, like work pattern since, would have rated higher if not for the post
11 Suances Pride


Race 7 Average Clarity
9 Make the Sun Shine - Trainer Casse is probably sick of playing the bridesmaid role this meet. This expensive second timer should finally get him to the altar.
1 Starlet O'Hara - Ran huge in debut despite trouble from the 1 post, strong works since but will have to deal with the 1 post again.
3 Redshirt - Good breeding but the trainer stats are not particularly strong for this situation. However, I like to play 1st starters who do not use Lasix.
6 Here Comes Chloe


Race 8 Average Clarity
2 Goldencents - Training like the monster he can be, enough speed to stay in touch, will be tough
3 DeClassify - Getting better and better, expecting a top effort 3rd off the layoff, will he have enough to hold off the 2 after pressing the 5?
4 Pablo Del Monte - seems best on the AW and should get first jump on the off pace horses, chance
5 Seeking the Sherif


Race 9 Average Clarity
4 Personal Diary - Plenty of pace to flatter her late kick, working well for this, just hope she is not a hanger
6 Love In The Desert - figs in 2 stateside races fit here, works are solid, should love the distance
10 Vanlose Stairway - Done nothing wrong in 3 starts, tactical speed to get position but tough post at this distance
8 Alexis Tangier


Race 10 Average Clarity
4 Miss Kit Kat - working well for her debut, Sadler very strong in all the relevant categories
11 Q'Viva - should appreciate the class relief, fits well is she can work out a trip from this post
6 Private Marina - finally moves somewhat inside after 2 overland trips, Chew has been dynamite with these kind of layoffs
5 Mom's Winner
3 Runningwiththelute
8 Yodelmesomemagic
