Los Alamitos for Friday 6 July 2018

I wouldn't be surprised if they called off the card with the ridiculously hot forecast. If they do race take note of any bias as 107 to 110 degree heat can sure change a racing surface.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

4  Edna   very solid works for this filly 1st timer especially considering the level of racing and who the trainer is as he doesn't push them that hard in the morning

3  Princess Becky   trainer can be sneaky with his maiden claiming 1st timers ......his works with successful 1st time MC's are often average at best but numerous....that is the case with this two-year old filly making her debut

2  Kalypso Night   flashed speed and stopped in her debut but likely wasn't all that fit to go off at 47 to 1........better works since....should show more today.....to what extent seems to be the ? mark

 

race 2    average clarity

4  Kentan Road   seems very loose in this spot and with the 7 lbs bug boy up who is off to a good start at the Lrc meeting.....that and this filly is 1 for 1 at Lrc

2  Bobbie Lincoln   both lifetime races for this five-year old mare fit and it seems like a very good sign that Ellis puts her in a non claiming event.......she could use a better start......very very dangerous if she gets one

3  Warm It Up  likes to hang in the stretch but she managed to win by a neck to graduate in her latest......that and she handles the Lrc surface quite well

 

race 3    average clarity

3  Take a Leap   solid MC turf debut down the hill.....she finished up very well and had a very impressive gallop out....that and Mullins liked what he saw to step her up into MSW from MC.....bred fine for the dirt and a route.....recent bullet work hints her grass debut muscled her up

1  Chickatini   dangerous speed and a good post to utilize it.......likely will attempt to shake loose and try to wire the field

4  Convince   double barrel action for Eurton as he also trains our top selection.....might get a nice stalk position behind our 2nd pick....not out of the win picture by any means

 

race 4    below average clarity

5  Stoneys Mr Cruiser   decent 4 1/2F time at LA in latest.....only needs to get 1/16 more today.....has good early speed.......dangerous on or near the lead position

6  Templar   seems to need 5F and gets it........dangerous trainer first out following a claim which is the case today.....like our top pick he should be up close from the get go

2  I'll Wrap It Up   would easily have been top if this race was at 6F or further........should be roaring down the stretch late hoping not to run out of real estate to work with

 

race 5    average clarity

3  Coco Smoothes   hasn't worked following a race in a long time but did this time around and the drill is awfully good......won at today's level at Lrc last year..........like the change in apprentice riders......should be a price

1  La Galy   last winning effort and a 9L win at that was run the last time this mare competed off of a long layoff........7 months since she raced last.......works are decent.......seems ready to roll fresh off of the bench

5  Briartic Gal   trainer Reed Saldana does a nice job with limited starters......filly ran a decent 3rd in her lone race at Lrc

 

race 6    below average clarity

4  Hollywood Dancer   impressive 8L win at LA at 870........and his pedigree strongly suggests running a longer sprint should be a plus........we will find out at about 3:28 p.m.

3  Midnight Soot   seems best when placed in sprints........and might be at his best with ample time between starts which he gets today

6  Candyman Garret   1st out with Pender as the trainer.......colt ran a couple of races last summer that fit.......realistically spotted for his 3rd start........danger city if he is ready off the long layoff

 

race 7    average clarity

7  Ike   lifetime best by far was the lone time this Bob Baffert colt raced at route......and the fact that Drayden Van Dyke is showing up for one mount is reassuring.......hard not to like

9  Aquila   good early speed vs this group for this Callaghan runner......and......the only time this 1st time gelding got loose on the front end he won earning a solid number

5  Divisor   gelding needs his best and he might be up for it as his last preparatory work put in is the best drill he has shown in some time.......trainer is a perfect 2 for 2 to start the meeting

8  Upper Room

3  Avanti Bello

 

race 8    average clarity

5  Kelseybelle   consistent sort on the AW and the turf up north at GG.....bred fine to handle conventional dirt as well.....believe 6F is a good fit.....like her chances if she handles the new surface

2  Mischievious Lass   filly owns 2 2nd's and a 3rd the 3 times she has sprinted......last is better than appears in print (fast heat and a somewhat tough trip).......should make a good account of herself

1  Veiled Heat   definitely fits fine here but she has developed into a hanger.......needs to get over the bad habit to get to the circle of joy

8  Miss Kitaen

6  Scurry
