Del Mar for Friday 7 August 2015

Decent card for today. Let's call it a 6.5 on the 1 to 10 scale of things

Best of Luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

3  Last One Standing   useful debut and gelded since....cuts claiming price in half basically at the price they paid for this youngster in April.....trainer is solid when he drops a maiden claimer,,,,,,,should be tough

1  Twisted Earl   horrid trips in both lifetime starts lugging out / boring out.....blinkers off and 1st time Lasix......bullet work since his last.....might get things right today

4  Panther Creek   useful MSW debut race in mid June at decently for his new conditioner with 1st time blinkers......Texas bred is not impossible


race 2    average clarity

8  Light Striker   toss out latest which was on a sloppy track.....basically her whole career routing on "fast" dirt tracks fit in this spot....claimed by one sharp guy in Ellis

5  Enduring Erin   much needed drop.....seems like a drop to win as opposed to a "claim me please" drop........stout trainer/rider combo

1  Private Marina   seems likely to get what she has ad success with....that being a nice ground saving stalking position....very consistent sort in 2015

7  Natalie Page   needs a rebound......enough time off and an impressive work series hint she might provide one


race 3    average clarity

10  Dee for Dave  hidden forward move in 2nd lifetime endeavor.......and now we get an upgrade in trainer and rider for today......such a deal

9  Cyber Star   exits a key race (in his maiden debut) albeit way back in mid June.........but he is working up to snuff and I like the switch in riders......extra 1/2 furlong also looks like a plus

1  Vartan    fell off a little in last.....needs a rebound to his effort two back........cut back in distance should be to his advantage

8  Drylightning   broke poorly in maiden debut and then showed some life......improved work since.........went off 93 to 1.....rider upgrade - I think.........more seems likely today


race 4    average clarity

6  Urloveneverfails   clunker in last but solid MSW debut in previous race........dull works prior to latest but strong works now with the blinkers on.....rebound city

1  Sadie Clare   got left about 5L in debut way back in March and then showed plenty of life from there.......away since but training as if she is ready to roll fresh off of the bench

7  Soul Flyer   both lifetime races which were run last year fit and I especially like her stretch run in her MSW debut.....away a year and a couple of weeks but she sure is training as if she is ready as she was for her debut

10  California Curl    decent MSW debut and the works hint she'll move forward today.....and the extra 1/2 furlong appears to be a plus

Long-shot consideration:  9  Edwina   poor start in MSW debut and then she showed she can run some.......and she went off at 42 to 1 hinting she wasn't all that cranked up for her 1st start.....might be for her 2nd


race 5    average clarity

8  Hobbits Hero  after winning his 1st 3 grass races he went bad.......only 3rd race since 4/11/14 but his work regiment is impressive and his last work is sizzling good.......rebound city today

2  Huntsville   not much in last but his effort two back is solid and disguised somewhat by a wide trip........switch to Bejarano for today hints we will get the effort displayed two races back

5  Corinthian's Song   drop should help and often runs at his best fresh.....fresh today and working decently

11  Anythingscookin   fresh speed is dangerous speed and this fellow has been absent since Feb 2014........gate to wire shot in this spot


race 6    above average clarity

8  Daddy's Duo   won by 13L the only time on conventional dirt.....and just popped a bullet work at Dmr on 1 August of 46:2 on a very deep track.....should be very fit

3  Tiz Sweet Bliss   on the improve since the blinkers were taken off......last fits.....more today and she might be the one to overcome

9  Blondy's Reward   significant awakening in last her 1st on the Del Mar dirt.......back in short rest.....might be feeling awfully good......lookout if she is

4  Alexita   last wasn't bad....recent 6F work at Slr hints at more what degree is the ? mark


race 7    average clarity

1  Shrinking Violet   3 for 6 in abbreviated turf sprint races.....trainer is very solid in sprint grass races all over the world.......race seemingly sets up for her off pace style...........good history with today's jock up

9  Home Journey   might be speed of the speed and has run well for Bejarano in her last two races

5  Birdlover   very consistent grass runner gets the choosy M Smith to ride......dangerous

6  Windy Forecast    last isn't bad and it was at Dmr at 5F on the the 4lbs off for today.....not impossible with a clever ride


race 8    below average clarity   (very difficult group to say the least)

7  Tizmatic   last appeared to be a tune-up of sorts........drops and takes the blinkers off and puts up a hot rider.......improvement is what degree is the ? mark

6  Winter Rule   1st timer seemingly gets a soft group to debut in.......decent sire and mom has tossed 5 winners from 7 starters including a Stakes winner

10  Scat City  another 1st timer training well enough to be ready to compete in a soft looking maiden claimer

5  Mydancingshadow   Bejarano lands here........good enough to consider in this trashy looking field

1  Show and Tell   might have been a gimme...... but........ the trainer in much better 1st out after a claim than he is 2nd out after a claim

3 The Grumbler    last was better.....more for today would help chances
