Del Mar for Friday 4 September 2015

So so card today as you can see from the clarity ratings.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

3  Atlantic Slew   vet scratch on 6 August......but......the works since hint she has gotten over what bothered her and maybe in a big way........takes that ever dangerous drop from MSW racing to maiden claiming........which is one of Puype's best stats historically

4  Among The Angels   checked and it caused her to lose her stride about 7L.....and she ran somewhat wide on the turn......did well to only get beat by 12L.......showed plenty of run so connections step her up to keep claiming vultures at bay

5  Briana Jean  best ever was the longest rest between starts (36 days)........29 days today since latest.......fits if she is up to a rebound

7  Tiz Pleasant   moved forward in 2nd lifetime start........solid improved work since......believe another forward move is likely


race 2    average clarity

4  Commander King   exits a very fast heat at today's same level......earned a lifetime best and much better than par for today's level.....might have really liked the Dmr sod

9  Gunslinger   won latest by the largest margin (23 lengths) in many a moon in S Cal at the "big" tracks.......OK grass pedigree.....easily would have been top choice if this was dirt but it is 2nd pick here

1  Silver Torch   basically has fired to some degree in every lifetime route race turf or AW.........seems best at one mile on the grass and just fired best ever at 1 1/ back to one mile makes her dangerous

2  Shake Things Up   NY shipper left the Big Apple on the improve.......fits if the trend continues


race 3    average clarity

1  Yana   very strong efforts in both lifetime dirt races.......and has trained very impressively for Bill Spawr who doesn't push them hard in the a.m.....making her a.m. work that much more valid

3  Never Ends   1st ever around two turns but lifetime best was only race at if she handles the two turns she likely will get the eight panels

6  Enduring Erin   1/2 the field wants the front....that bodes well for this late running six-year-old mare

7  She's Reddy   new improved filly since going on Lasix.......might be speed of the speed


race 4    average clarity

8  Dreamologist   bet hard in debut and ran a strong race but was greatly compromised by dueling on a suspect rail on 16 July.......fabulous 7F work should haveher ready for her 2nd lifetime start and 1st at a route....... she has a pedigree that says she should handle both

4  Sweet Promises   nice wake up in latest her 1st on the sod.......and the effort is somewhat hidden by a poor trip.......positive rider change for today especially for the turf race

6  Place des Vosges   might have needed last.......race 2 back at CD is strong.......Smith stays with the filly........and it is his only ride of the day

7  Nashoba's Candy   solid MSW debut somewhat hidden by a so so trip.......and Stevens stays up in his lone mount for the day


race 5   average clarity

2  Viviendo El Sueno   solid MSW debut two back.....lost all chance at the start in 2nd lifetime start.....strong a.m. work since......should be in the mix from the opening bell

4  Smokey Image   3 for 3.....winning by daylight in all 3 races......more than deserves a shot at the big Cal circuit .....knows how to rate......a good commodity to have in these two-year-old sprints

5  Found Money   needs more than latest.....cut back of 1/2 furlong might help get it


race 6    below average clarity

6  Pathway to Yes   trainer is at his best 2nd out after layoffs.....that is the case here and the recent works support the notion that better is forthcoming today

4  Rocket Heat   wants the lead and when he gets it he is very tough to reel in in these abbreviated sprint turf races of only 5F

1  Ferocious   laid up since New Year's Day but working awfully well for Ellis and company......colt is capable of rating which is a plus here

5  Set Of J's   laid up since 16 Sept 14 but trains awfully well on the grass with the dogs up.....make sense the connections want him ready fresh as he is eligible for the extra cash offered to 1st in shippers


race 7    below average clarity

( AE 13 or 14 have a shot if they draw into the field)

5  Xerxes   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime start......just needs to repeat the effort with a decent trip and he should have as good a shot at the winners circle as anyone.......and if he moves forward he will be especially tough

3  Juansagain   good early gas here and the cut back in distance sure appears to be a plus

9  Clearly See   works look awfully good for this Glatt 1st time starter.....up for mdn20K doesn't bother me much as he went for chump change at sale

2  Blue Ratio   moved forward some in 2nd lifetime start......needs another move forward today and he likely will fit

7  Royal Glamber   decent layoff run in latest.......and a rider upgrade today.....definitely fits if he builds off his layoff run

6  Bananappeal   6F looks like a good fit......but.......still needs more......maybe 1st time blinkers today will provide it
