Hollywood for Friday 18 May 2012


Race 1: Average Clarity

4 Bertrando Falls - multiple trouble in debut from the tough one hole, better trip gives a big shot
6 Night Wind - beaten chalk has trouble getting out of the gate, clean break and he could be gone
1 Awesome Year - Joy Scott and the one post would normally be an automatic toss but works are too good to ignore

Race 2: Slightly Above Average Clarity

4 So She Dances - improving sort gets Raffy to stay put, that's a good enough recommendation for me
2 Love My Way - come and get me
5 Hout Bay - both turf efforts are better than they appear, will be flying late

Race 3: Slightly Below Average Clarity

7 Rocket Train - claimed from Mitchell is usually not a good thing, but Diodoro is quite capable, vastly improved speed in last
2 Soi Phet - wide against the bias in last, should get a good inside stalking trip this time
6 Great Rising Star - do not see winning but a 3rd off the layoff effort can net a piece
4 Tap It In - red flags abound for this morning line chalk, cannot totally ignore however
Longshot 8 - Tarsus - debut not that bad, worth a flyer especially if track looks outside

Race 4: Average Clarity

2 Diamond Duchess - strong effort off the 11 month layoff, given time so expect to see more, interesting that Candy lands here
1 Pure Storm - 3rd start in the current cycle and should get a perfect stalking trip
6 Lika - lone win came at this trip, love the work 5 days ago, bombs away
7 Vikkilee - never seem to get this veteran right, looks to get a late piece

Race 5: Slightly Below Average Clarity

3 Dr. Evil - not sure why they tried turf again but race 2 back fits here, solid recent work
5 Master Rudy - slowly improving and will be right there if the trend continues
6 On Holy Ground - lone AW sprint (2 year old) was a good effort, wonder what took so long to try it again
9 First Blue Angel - excuses for both AW efforts but ability on that surface remains an issue

Race 6: Slightly Above Average Clarity

6 Grumpy Small Mouth - Miller off to a great start at BHP, fantastic stats 2nd off layoff and with Gomez
4 Baron Von Red - breaking problems the last 2, clean start..look out
2 Lead Blocker - fine effort after freshening and good works since, trainer solid with limited stock
5 Outperform - finally figured it out in last and may put that knowledge to good use here

Race 7: Average Clarity

1 Real Conundrum - a real conundrum..will he inherit the lead or stalk the 5? either way will be tough to beat
2 Woodmans Luck - deep closer making 3rd start in cycle will need more pace than anticipated
5 Unstopper Topper - tries AW routing for the first time, don't expect him to last but Raffy has surprised me before

Race 8: Slightly Below Average Clarity

1 Si Mar's Dear - broke slow and rushed into a strong quarter in last, should get the best trip behind the speed
7 Winter Blossom - 3rd start of the year and you know Iggy will try hard with one of his limited mounts
2 Kintla Journey - everything Martin is claiming is running right back, expect the same here
9 Five Star Cruise - tough post but the most capable jockey for getting the needed clever ride
8 Jacobita
3 Moon Stone Madness
