Hollywood for Sunday 11 December 2011


Studied my rear end off (6 hours) because this card isn't easy and I really wanted to keep the good handicapping rolling along. So that is why I am not providing comments for every horse. Good luck, we might need it.


race 1    slightly above average clarity

5  Russian River   logical drop off the long hiatus from the track.....whole career on the turf fits well here......Mitchell is never afraid to run a horse where it can win

2  Maya Angelina   decent run on the AW in last......gets the grass this time and her lone run on it was quite good

6  Vikkilee


race 2    average clarity

5  Orbach   back to a level this gelding belongs at and 1st time Bejarano for O'neill suggests this youngster is well meant for the circle of joy today

6  Mentidoso   2 decent races off of the layoff....might get a little more pop and a forward move back in shorter rest

1  Bryan Daniel


race 3    average clarity

6  Let's Go Cheyenne   improving sort should be on or near the front end from the get go....trainer is awakening I believe

4  Roxanne O   fired best ever in layoff last...1st time ever racing off of relatively short rest.........expensive purchase maybe finally getting the hang of things......we shall see this afternoon

1  Heidi Maria


race 4    average clarity

1  Jairzihno   no wins since Mitchell claimed 6 races ago so you know what that means......DROP CITY

4  They Call Him El   claimed by Puype in early Oct.......rested a little and then he put in a nice work series that is progressively sharper....seems ready fresh

3  Pode Ir

6  Achak


race 5    average clarity

3  Onebadboy   price shot is on the right end of the learning curve......he is bred well to handle the sod and the 1 mile distance........also his trainer is fairly decent 1st time on the sod and at a distance

2  Victory Cup   debut was solid.......last race was a very poor effort/fig but he was very washed out at the pay attention at how he appears today....very beatable if he is washy again....and not so beatable if he looks good

8  Unstopper Topper

1  Cee Cee Seattle


race 6    slightly below average clarity

10  My Bashert    just keeps getting better and better and better and better.....bred to handle a route and owns plenty of early speed to clear and get over from the outside post

6  Hannah G   another who is getting better with each start and it is somewhat hidden....very well bred to run long

3  Sage D'oro

1  Lovestealer


race 7    average clarity

2  Canonize   needed last but more importantly there is a good chance the 3 and the 4 force the issue up front and this one will be in a nice stalk position behind tiring horses

3  Indian Firewater   a fresh horse this time of year is usually a good thing....will be on or near the lead and try to hang around

1  Skipshot


race 8    average clarity

7  Excellent News    hasn't missed a beat in the morning since mid Sept....Baffert wants this 4 year old totally fit and ready for today because he is 3 of 5 on the Hol AW and 1 for 10 is over next Sunday

3  Tiz Flirtatious   good debut than even better in 2nd lifetime start....that fig fits and now we get 7 lbs off.......pedigree and running style suggest 7F is a good fit

5  Going For A Spin

6  Lady Railrider


race 9   average clarity

14  Goldentouch Of Gin    earned a solid mc debut fig with not the best of trips......jockey upgrade for today and a very reassuring drill since his debut

6  Argue My Case   Cerin is showing signs of awakening.....laid up a long time but training very sharply as if ready and well meant.......both lifetime sprints on the Hol AW fit well

4  Lovely Sophia

10 Our Bonita

8  Prized Fashion

7  Highly Composed

Longshot Possibilities:  9  Truly A Mist
