Los Alamitos for Sunday 5 July 2015

So so card today. Be back with you on Thursday

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity

1  Derringer    good speed in this spot down to only four horses.........nice race in latest off of the 3 month break and the effort is somewhat disguised by an eventful trip.......3 wide duel pressing a sold pace.......last win came back in short rest.....short rest today

5  Buckleberry Grey    impressive two consecutive wins following the 2 year hiatus.....just snatched up at the claiming box by O'Neill and he gets a nice non-claiming spot to run his new shooter.....seems likely to range up from the outside and be motoring late


race 2    average clarity

6  Bella Breeze   blinkers on to help her focus and even get more out of her already good early speed.......mdn 50K debut 2 back sure looks solid at today's mdn30K level

7  Pretty Patricia    Hollendorfer has won with a stellar 17 of his last 48 maiden claiming 1st timers and he might add to that impressive record here with this filly that shows a solid prolonged work tab .......and all of her a.m. work was done at Los Alamitos

4  Dotted Princess   small barn but trainer Lin Melton has won with 2 of his last 5 maiden claiming 1st timers and he has this filly working well enough to be ready for her debut......and mom has tossed 3 winners from 3 starters


race 3    below average clarity

4  Shopping Savannah    have to like the distance for this filly as she is (4 2 1 1) in her last 4 main track one mile races.........might be a nice claim by O'Neill.......filly seems likely to sit in a nice ground saving mid pack or stalk position

3  Wild Caroline   might be the one to overcome if she can handle her 3rd race in 21 thing for sure she has a good history back in short rest and also at today's one mile distance (3 2 0 1)

5  Light Striker   big run (albeit on the sod) 1st time with the blinkers on in last.......back to the dirt today.......2nd out after the claim by Julio Canani who is a gaudy 46% with his last 13 2nd out after a claim runners


race 4    average clarity

5  Forty Straight    3 straight races ambitiously placed over her head.......reality sets in.....back in a claimer and a cheap one at that.....fits today providing she can handle her 1st around a couple of turns.......low % trainer but not dropping a horse multiple levels where he is a solid 6 for his last 19

1  I Heart You   consistent dirt router has been claimed 3 straight times.......this time by Treece who has won with 24% of his 283 1st after a claim runs......should be closing in the late stages

3  Teasing Moment   good race turf to dirt 3 back.....turf race in last - dirt race here.........rider upgrade.......seems well meant for today


race 5   average clarity

3  Oil    last was impressive and better than appears on paper.......four year old was loose but did so with a sizzling 2nd quarter and on a sightly dull inside........did well to hang on for 2nd

4  Distinctive B   last off of the layoff was solid and the connections were likely very relieved they didn't lose their gelding by way of a claim........steps up quite a bit today but if he logically moves forward 2nd out after the claim he should be tough

5  Bandido Too   on the right end of the learning curve and shows a nice work since his maiden breaking win in latest......not impossible to make in two in a row 


race 6    average clarity

3  Sir Barclay    improved early speed in latest and now adds blinkers........might be the perfect time to be in an abbreviated sprint of only 5F........and he is 1 for 1 at Lrc 

6  Frensham   colt has seen better days but he still should be closing late in this spot even in his diminished state

8  Time Toget Ahead   two solid lifetime races at 4 1/2 furlongs and he finished up well in both of them hinting the extra 1/2 furlong will b to his liking

4  Put It There   horse and rider seem to be a good pace runner here but he is a good gate horse which is obviously important at 5F


race 7    average clarity

2  Antinanco   seems like an intelligent small drop off of the claim and the trainer is 5 for his last 8 dropping off of a claim ........and in the other 3 he still managed to hit the board

6  Ransom Canyon   drop also makes sense for this grass cutter who really can't compete at the 25K level on the the connections wisely drop way down for his 1st ever on conventional dirt....sure trains well on it despite his turf pedigree

7  Rambling House   route speed horse has won from off of it in a sprint......and that seems wise here as there are quite a few speed types starting inside of him

1  Atascaderan   need to lead type appears to have the most early what cost seems to be the ? mark here


race 8    average clarity

6  Super Majesty  trained impressively for Hollendorfer and company prior to winning her debut by 1/2 dozen lengths.....and has even worked better since........great chance to start her career 2 for 2

1  Stealth Drone   claimed by Miller two races back and he uses the same turf sprint to dirt route manuever that led to a win two race s back

5  Magic Lilly   very dangerous high % trainer in John Martin ships in this GG filly who ran well on the Lrc surface in her only start on in last December.......filly seems likely to put in a good showing this afternoon considering the consistency of her trainer

9  On Golden Pond   another GG invader placed well to win......might have considered placing her higher if she hadn't preformed only so so in her two lifetime starts at Lrc


race 9    average clarity

9  Briana Jean   3 wide trip in MSW debut and still beat 1/2 the field....drops to a maiden claimer......strong win % for Miyadi MSW to mc......sure seems tough

2  Ride the Shark   about 6 lengths of trip trouble in MSW debut which likely was a tune-up of sorts anyway as Koriner like Miyadi is quite dangerous MSW to mc........and we get a major league rider upgrade

6  Acute Fever   trained awfully well prior to a disappointing debut......and had support at the windows......deserves another chance

8  Awesome Romance   poor start in MSW debut and then showed some life......drop helps as does having a race under her belt as her trainer seldom does well with 1sters

4  Swiss Affair   so so MSW debut so wisely drops into maiden claiming

5  Awe C'mon Sweetie   best of what is left......doubt a winner....maybe a small chunk of the pie
