Del Mar for Sunday 2 August 2015

Feast or famine maybe today with only 4 clarity ratings of "average clarity" Be back with you on Wednesday and with some large fields carded.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity

3  Nite Delite   did herself in with way too fast of a first quarter in her latest......MSW debut two back is a key race........1st time in maiden claiming and 1st time Bejarano......very dangerous if she is still the same horse

6  Kiss My Face   much needed drop out of MSW racing........6 1/2 furlongs seems like good fit and it might not be for quite a few in here

10  Blue Cilantro   decent mc 20K debut and was claimed by Miller.......steps up some but still only needs a logical move forward in her 2nd lifetime start to have a shot at the circle of joy

7  Lady of Winterfell   trainer does extremely well with limited starters......4 wins in 7 starts in are good enough for this 1ster


race 2    below average clarity

6  Smart N Dreamy   back to the level she last won at and back to the rider who was aboard that day for the win.....and I love the Baltas/Bejarano combo

5  Papaslittleprince   believe this 5 yr old mare is doing quite well for Mathias to put her up two levels for the 2nd straight time.......15% trainer overall is 34 % 2nd out after a layoff which is the case here

8  Tiz Partners    just claimed by Puype who statiscally speaking is at his very best 1st following a claim.......five year old mare has faced better most of her career

1  Miss Ellany   gate to wire threat here


race 3    above average clarity

7  Tough Sunday   popped a monster effort (121:4 as a two year old) the lone time this colt sprinted off of short rest (and is was 2nd out off of a layoff)........2nd out off a layoff here and back in 23 days........hmmmm

4  London Legacy   on the improve with every start and if the trend continues that is scary thing as her last is awfully good........and Bejarano sticks around for a 6th straight time and he seldom rides for the Sherlock barn

5  Pulla Train   not as good a runner as our top two but this five year old looks like he has a shot to open up a lead here........impressive bullet 5F work just a week ago


race 4    average clarity

7  Gunslinger   19 to 1 in MSW debut for a $625K purchase (and with a very low % ride up) hints the effort was a gimme and the real running starts at today's significantly easier level and with a high % jock up

8  Shanty Irish   overdo drop out of MSW racing as this fellow has only earned $2,450 to date in 5 lifetime starts.......and look who ends up in the saddle for the 1st time.........R. B.

13   Jens De Ville   back for the same tag Miller took him for and back in short rest.....might be ready for a strong race if his 1st ever running off of short rest turns out to be a plus

9  Warren My Boy   all 3 lifetime races are better than appear in print.......fits fine if he settles down.....maybe a route will help.....bred OK for one

Long-shot consideration:   1  Majestic C    3 lifetime sprint running lines hint he might prefer a route of ground......and the works are vastly improved of late.......Pedroza will likely hustle early


race 5   average clarity

6  Gimme Da Lute   Cal bred who has won 2 consecutive Graded races and is training as if he loves the Dmr surface.....that'll do

3  Neveradoubt   big race (fig) 1st time on the Dmr surface.....but the effort was run on a good rated was it the off track or the Dmr surface.....we will learn more today

1 Richard's Boy   no shot in his last dirt race which was 3 back as he dueled on a dead rail.....did well to salvage 3rd.........sure could use a better rail today......say like a slightly biased one


race 6    below average clarity

3  Fancy Shoes   like his dirt route win 2 back and his sprint race 4 back......seems to be running every other race and today he is on the right end of the pentulum........but what I really like is he vastly improved a.m. work......owns a pedigree that should handle the sod

4  All Run    nicely improved since Moger took over........solid turf route run sprint to route at GG......sprint race in last and a route here......good work and the meets leading jock stays up

2  Silver Touch   Stevens likely recognizes there isn't much ES in this race and this fellow has a  the intelligent rider likely will place him forwardly early and enhance his chances

AE 11 Commander King or AE 12 Derby Glass   whoever gets in is the 4th selection


race 7    average clarity

9  Who's Out   very solid work tab for this Hollendofer 1ster.......sure like the last two gate drills.......they are fast and hint this colt has some early speed

3  Blameitonthelaw   expensive March buy is training like he will return some dividends in his MSW debut for Sadler who wins more than his fair share of these baby MSW affairs

5  South Detroit   plenty of furlongs put into this D'Amato 1st timer and he shows hints of some early gas......definitely dangerous

7  Global Event   Baffert 1ster with good works not great placed as 4rd pick

Long-shot consideration:   2  Stardust Moon    ice cold rider and a low % trainer with 1st time starters.....but.......the a.m. work is too good to totally ignore this debut runner....and Cassidy can be tricky


race 8    average clarity

1  Artistic Charm   consistent sort since arriving in the good old U S of A seems likely to get a nice ground saving mid pack or stalk position behind a few faint of heart types......such a deal with Bejaraon up

2  Maibaby   trainer is tough wit 45 to 90 days off........and I sure like that he put Prat up as Prat rode this filly 3X in France and did win on her

4  Royal Temptress   consistent late runner when placed in turf routes........handled the new grass course at Del Mar decently last Fall.......draws Hall of Fame rider Gary Stevens

7  One More   needs "A game" and I am not sure he is up for it.....but if he is he has a red hot rider up to get the job accomplished


race 9    above average clarity

5  Flat Gone   tough trip in last vs. better and still ran 2nd to a next out winner........very solid drills since.....drops and retains Bejarano.......should be tough here

4  Big Hat Charlie   toss his latest as he caught the slop.......previous race fits.....but.......might need best ever if our top choice hasn't slipped and gets a decent trip

12  Go First   training extremely well at Dmr for today's level and in for 14K.....2 lbs off......and 7 lb apprentice 9 lbs off total.....hang on bug girl Geena Lattanzio and you just might wind up with one big smile on your face

9  Secure Dividend   one for one when jock switch to Peroza who gets em out of the gate quickly ........that might........ give this speedster some shot

3  With A Breeze   last 3 are dull.....needs a rebound........Belvoir is a dangerous trainer when it come to making significant rebounds with a given horse

13 AE Dive Down if he gets in - if not 2 Stenoa is the 6th choice
