Hollywood for Sunday 16 May 2010

Handicappers Corner

Can't remember the last time we had 6 races rated "above average clarity".  Sure seems like a nice card.

Sure got exciting in the stretch in the Preakness when our top choice Lookin At Lucky and our long-shot 3rd choice Yawanna Twist looked like they might go 1, 2.


Recommended pick 3 part wheel starts in the 5th

1, 2, 4, 7 with 5, 7 with 1, 3, 4     24 bets


race 1    slightly above average clarity

1  Lucy Got Lucky    solid route races under Canani'stutelage since he claimed last Fall......good mid pace position behind what should be a lively pace

6  Look To The Sky   filly is successfully climbing the claiming ladder one rung at a time.....loves the AW surfaces

5  Malusita   logical drop for this grass horse who has turf figs that are sold she must repoduce one of them today on the AW


race 2    slightly above average clarity

4  Shoo Gee   very solid works for Solis 1st timer....he's been on a roll with his babies at Hollywood

6  Swiss Wild Cat   2nd time starter exits a solid heat with a 2nd place finish and a fig that is respectable

2  Stealthy   nicely bred animal is training as if ready for her maiden debut

4  Twisp   not the best of trips in maiden debut last......solid drill just 5 days ago hints  she will show more today


race 3    slightly above average clarity

4  Gray Zulu   2 straight races with very strong pace....very impressive to almost win in last with such a nasty pace

3  Sammy's A Runnin'   needed last and there is a high likelihood we see much more today

6  Detroit Donnie   big awakening in 2nd time start....believe she will move forward


race 4    average clarity

1  Banner Lodge   good chance to be loose on the lead and that will make him tough to catch with Mr Smith aboard

7  Majestic Diamond   gelding usually fires his best fresh off of the bench....fresh today

2  Noblety   consistent sort has a shot at a nice slow paced chase position


race 5    average clarity

1  Our Road Scholar   solid improve 1st after the claim for Avila...repeat of that effort makes her the one to overcome

2  Nine To Dine   fresh speed is training sharply...barn is quietly having a good meet....wire to wire shot

4  Be Driven   no shot in last...extremely wide...jock will be out to make amends


race 6    slightly above average clarity

7  Harmonious   earned a solid MSW debut fig with a trip from you where......switchesto the sod with terrific grass and route breeding...would love to get morning line

5  Blue Tambourine   par like effort in last on the AW...also switchs to the lawn....decent grass breeding

10  Go Forth North   two solid grass races in the USA.....very difficult post or would have been rated higher

9  Magic Lantern   last looks like the sprint grass gimme to get more fit for her 1st at a route in the good old U S of A


race 7    average clarity

4  Wynning Ride   sprint win fresh off of the layoff and strong works since sets the tough team of Garcia/Baffert up to go after this Grade 2 full throttle

3  Dance To My Tune   popped a very big race 2 back when she only got beat by 1 1/4 lengths to the mighty Zenyatta...very tough if she can bounce back to that effort

1  Third Dawn   nice filly needed her last and most likely pointed to today's Grade 2 affair


race 8   slightly above average clarity

6  Bran Jammas   love her last closing fast versus the stellar speed horse Ruination...strong Top Turf Today fig 

2  Magic Launch  good chance to get the same chase / ponce position as in her last.....loves the grass

3  Salty Sarah   handles strong pace and sticks around....will try to wire and if she gets even average pace lookout

5  Silver Heat   hot rider / trainer combo...has shown competitiveness in all 4 grass races


race 9    slightly above average clarity

3  Fleeting Summer   has hit the track mostly at 6 day intervals for a prolonged period of time with solid drills for a maiden claimer 1ster....sure seems wound up like a top and ready to roll

11  Big Wags   on the right end of the learning curve and a positive rider change to Bejarano...seems very solid here

5  Undaunted Rally   debut was 9 months ago but she showed she can run some and the work tab suggests she is record...small time trainer is better than his record indicates

4  The Robster   good work tab for a guy like Vienna with a 1ster.....not sure why he has named a 1 for 56 rider as his jockey....jock's forte is speed types and this filly does have some speed breeding

12  Castaway Logic   believe this is the last race that the bug boy gets a weight gets tougher for him now...regressing some....gimme / go scenario here
