Oak Tree at Hollywood for Friday 1 Oct 2010


In the 'what's new" category the 1st night card at Hollywood was tough on speed because of a dull inside.  That makes it 4 straight 1st night cards scheduled that has produced an outside track bias. But in all 4 cases the next day's card was just fine (neutral). So I did study for a neutral track in mind. But, you might want to watch the first couple of races before you put the hammer down.


Recommended pick 4 part wheels start in race no. 5

7/3,5/3,5,7,8/5,7,9  and  1,3,4,6,7/3,5/3,5,7,8/3    64 bets



race 1    average clarity

2  Jakesam   very aggressive impressive work series has this colt all set to handle a distance of ground

5  Just Imagine   tossed a clunker in last but previous 2 lifetime races fit fine if he can run as well 1st time at a route


race 2    average clarity

6  Magical Instinct   hidden wake up in last...checked early then ran on a dull inside....step up in class hints at  a horse feeling good

4  Red Defense   solid work series suggests this Gaines charge is all set for his debut into the world of racing

5  Battling Atticus   very impressive work tab for this 1ster over at Fpx who scratched out of yesterday's mdn 25K to run here at M40K


race 3    slightly below average clarity

6  Ride Candy Ride   turf tightener.....good drills since over at Fpx....and a logical drop to graduate

3  Swiss Hero   good speed and a great speed rider aboard in P Val.....bad speed day yesterday so take note of the 1st 2 races

8  Meshuguna   good set of drills for this Yakteen 2 year old

7  Warren's A Legend   useful debut run in sire of this horse is off to a good start...believe we see a move forward today 


race 4    slightly below average clarity

1  Yasuda   best runs off the pace and really showed that in her last effort...earned a nice fig with a wide trip...tough if repeats it in a rather wide open affair

7  Can't Topper   Morey is as dangerous as they come 1st out after the's scenario

4  Movie Duty   last 4 race efforts all fit well for this level...speed's her game so take note of the 1st 3 races...bad speed day last night


race 5    average clarity

7  Yes It's A Cat   last looks like a tune-up.....barn likes to pop 2nd out after the layoff.....1 for 1 at 6F on the sod at Hollywood....trains like he is very fit and well meant

4  Sassou   just gelded before his layoff last which was decent...good turf speed and the right guy aboard...can move forward

1A  Pack Your Bags   loves 6F at Hollywood on the grass...should be flying late as usual


race 6    slightly above average clarity

5  Best Affair   powerful last only getting beat by 2 considering he did his running on a dull inside.....nice work series since and drops

3  Rathman   on the improve with every start and continues to train like the trend can continue for this Mike Mitchell charge

4  Warring Heart   competitive sort most of this years has a shot if he can overcome his tendency to hang

6  E. P. Bombay   strong work series....blinkers on....light weight of apprentice...and think they want the front end here ??


race 7    average clarity

5  Leaving New York   price shot did not embarrass himself in a Grade 1 in last....race lack speed and he has a little and that should give P Val some good position to work with

7  Scofield Barracks  on the improve lately...earned a very big fig in last with a 5 wide trip-a-roo

8  Inverness Cape   bet to fave in MSW debut and did not disappoint....strong work since.....appears to be a nice young horse

3  Moonlark   turf legged up for 2nd out after the layoff.....good speed in this spot...should be prominent thru-out


race 8    average clarity

3  The Unusual One    very sharp works for a trainer like Abrams...believe this colt is sitting on a possible lifetime top run...on or near the lead from the get go

7  Cantona   at GG 2 weeks ago this gelding ran wide with little pace to close into......hides his ability......consistent and Rosario knows horse well

5  Sammartino   very solid last effort chasing...believe can repeat his last if they take back a little again

9  Papa Lev   late runner can be flying late again with Bejarano remining aboard

4  Lone Justice   in good AW form...tries turf for the 2nd time.....1st run on the sod was so so...deserves 1 more chance
