Hollywood for Thursday 30 June 2011

[private]

Over 100K carryover today. Best "single" in the pick 6 sequence is the 6 horse in the 6th race.

 

race 1    slightly above average clarity

4  Carbonite   very hard to argue with 5 of 7 in the win column at 6F on the AW and the trainer is a 47% magician in the name of Mr Mike Mitchell

1  Nikki'sgoldensteed    just missed a notch below today's level and it was a good forward move....claimed back by Hess and he switches to Gomez for a positive rider upgrade

2  Position A   race has a distinct lack of speed so the most likely front runner gets a shot at steeling this affair

 

race 2    average clarity

2  Saros Secret   good move forward in 2nd lifetime start and the fact he steps up a notch and bothers to ship suggests another move in the right direction has a decent chance of occurring

3  Inquisitive Son   cold trainer but the works are too good to ignore for the level of racing

6  Warren's Digger   mc debut in last wasn't too bad....only needs a logical improvement of a couple of lengths to be formidable at this level

1  Ancient Coin   useful debut showing a touch of early speed....17 to 1 suggests the race was needed and more can occur this afternoon

 

race 3    average clarity

3  Luckarack   excellent record sprinting turf, dirt, or AW.....2 best races ever are with today's jock aboard

2  Ribat   3 solid races in 3 lifetime starts.......1st ever on the lawn but good turf pedigree......works suggest he is ready off of the 11 month hiatus from the track

6  Lime Rock Revenge   owns dangerous speed in this spot if he handles his 1st ever on the sod

 

race 4    average clarity

1  Portfolio   good forward move in last and a positive rider switch for today....reassuring 4F drill at Slr just 6 days ago

9  Running Isabelle   big Z pattern (up close-fall back-close well)....blinkers on to help focus thru-out

8  Santabarbrabendita   98 - 1 MSW debut and now drops to mc 30 and we get a solid rider upgrade....obvious gimme/go

2  Whiskers And Rye   bad trip in last hides an OK effort somewhat.......interesting step up in claiming value....might be feeling awfully good for today's race

 

race 5    below average clarity

10  Bronster   not much speed in this affair and this 3 year old has some......seems to be at his best when in contact to the front end of things

2  Bud I Crushed   has been out running his odds at GG....last race was especially good......late runner is hoping for more pace than anticipated

6  Lewdawg N Paradise   today's distance seems to be a good fit......has some early gas in a race that lacks it....jock knows how to put the pedal to the metal

9  Hughesy   tossed a clunker in last.....needs a rebound....not sure we will get one

 

race 6    slightly above average clarity

6  American Lady    very strong pace, final times and competition in both lifetime starts and impressively came away with a 1st and 2nd

1  Zenidekka   just keeps getting better and better and better and better

5  Moonstruck Maya    nice 3 year old filly is training better than ever and seems poised for a solid effort....needs to avoid a suicidal speed duel with our top pick

 

race 7    average clarity

3  Streamline Baby   par like efforts considering today's level in last 2......runs like 1 1/4 miles over the grass should be to her liking

5  Mutually Benefit   likes 6 to 8 weeks between races and gets it......bred to run all day....seems to be improving

6  Party With Brando   sure like Gomez sticking with this horse for a 3rd time in a row......only race at today's long distance was decent

 

race 8    slightly below average clarity

3  Quintons Destiny   excellent effort/fig in last and smartly steps up for 2nd out after the layoff....the step up hints at even more horse for today

9  Imperial Pride   laid up 14 months but training great.....2 solid 2nd's in 2 lifetime races on the synthetic

10  Just Imagine   switch to top jock and a sharp recent 3/8ths work may put this one into the circle of joy

1  Patriot's Voyage   tiring on the lead at a route so Baff smartly puts the blinkers on and places him in a sprint....they still want the lead just not so far to go

6  Hey Killer   low % 1st start conditioer but the work tab sure seems dangerous

8  Tiz Liberty   another with a dangerous looking aggressive work series for a 1st timer
