Los Alamitos for Friday 11 December 2015

So so looking card today.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

5  Ike Walker    very strong 1 1/4 effort just 12 days ago.......but......can he repeat it off of such short rest having just run 10 panels........O'Neill is better than average getting a solid effort out a given runner off of short rest.......and this three-year old fired a good forward race off of only 7 days rest back on August 1st

2  Tulira Castle   shooting for 5 wins in a row today and like our top choice he needs to do it off of a quick turn around......Talamo is up and he is 3 for 3 on the five-year old who has been in the exacta 14 of 21 lifetime starts......impressive


race 2    average clarity

5  Noble Editon    Dean Pederson is quite reliable with 1st timers who train well and this two-year old is working as if she is meant and ready......... and meant and ready in a soft looking MC race

6  Princess Kendra   two best lifetime races were run off of short rest and might do the "trick" here........29 days since her latest which was run off of a 3 month break.......should rebound what degree is the ? mark

1 Stardust Melody    so so work tab for this 1st timer .....but......a very soft looking field if our top selection doesn't run like I expect in her debut.......poor stats so far for new sire.....but has tossed 3 winners with 3 starters


race 3    average clarity

8  Emotional Drive   nice forward move in last stepping up into the MSW ranks .........two solid works since the improved effort.....and drops back to the MC20K ......repeat of last with an OK ride (not by favorite rider to say the least)  should result in a trip to the winners circle

1  Back Street Cat   ran an OK 3rd in debut run 10 months ago off of so so a.m. in preparation for start number two appear vastly better......light weight bug up should be an advantage in an abbreviated sprint of 5F if able to break well from the metal monster

5  Rosiescruella   last two drills for this Jeff Mullins three-year old filly hint she is sharpening when it counts the in right before her MC debut

7  My Lady Lou Lou

Long-shot consideration:   4  Lana Caprina   SCRATCHED


race 4    below average clarity

6  Can Can Babe   wide trip somewhat hides a decent layoff run in latest......bullet work since suggests she benefited from the race as does a step up of one level.....expecting more today

3  Guessed Right   not much of a that in mind her latest was likely a tune-up in a protected race to be at full throttle today back at a route and at a lower level race

1  Tell Her Yes    steps up multiple levels following the Periban claim and maybe deservedly so.......last was par like for today's higher level........and........seems best at today's distance (6 3 1 1)

5  Tatum's Gold


race 5    average clarity

4  Sir Samson   last three races with the blinkers off are bad.........previous two races with them on are good.......seems like a no brainer.......overdue but finally back on today........switch to Quinonez who is 3 for his last 8 over the last couple of months for Koriner

6  Native Treasure   lifetime best was run turf to conventional dirt in a race run 4 back and the effort is disguised by a 3 wide trip pressing the pace.....turf to dirt again today

1  Blue Anchor   2 for 3 since fronts were put on......1 for 1 at Lrc breaking the 1:09 barrier.......2 for 2 with today's rider Fernando Perez......a trifecta of reasons to consider

2  Guy Code


race 6    average clarity

1  Twirling Tiger   helllooooo route racing......lifetime best by far 1st time at a route of ground in last......trainer wisely places her two-year old gelding in a route race once again

6  Nicaradalic Rocks   only dirt race run off of short rest accounted for this youngster's lone lifetime win.........14 days since his last......good trainer in Desormeaux handling two-year old runners who route

5  Mishegas   on the improve with every start.......lone win came off of 14 days rest........15 days since his last......that'll do


race 7    below average clarity

5  Seattle Serenade   pounded at the widows to even odds in MSW debut and did not disappoint.......Hollendorfer trainee continues to work as if he exited the race in good shape......Mike Smith sticks around and it is the Hall of Fame rider's lone mount of the day

2  American Pride   2 for 2 sprinting on conventional dirt and both races were run at today's six panels......Baffert four year old has been absent since Feb. but he has shown he can fire fresh in the past.....and he is working nicely

3  Feisty's Cause    would have been 4 for 4 on conventional dirt if not for being taken down to 3rd in one of the races......faces the tallest task of his 11 race career but sure has earned the right to compete in this tougher higher level

6  Tough Sunday

Long-shot consideration:   7  Chief Lion   SCRATCHED


race 8    above average clarity

1  Alpine Luck   SCRATCHED

5  Anillo   (10 3 3 3) in his last ten races......and trainer Quin Howey is quite good in 3 relevant categories......claim repeater - up to classes - shipping......GG invader seems meant and ready

2  Kingsbury   on the improve since Jim Crotts claimed 3 races back......only race at Lrc is OK (nothing great) but he appears much sharper now than prior to his lone Lrc effort......dangerous for sure

8  Half Dome Dude

3  Time to Go Robo   SCRATCHED
