Hollywood for Sunday 30 June 2013


OK card to finish up the week. Two weeks of Hollywood to go and then on to Del Mar.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

1  Wellington Beauty   all of his races run on the AW fit here including his last which is somewhat hidden because of a bad trip

3  Jesse's Giacomo   don't care for her latest effort.....what we want is her race 2 back which was a strong wide race finishing in hand in late stretch


race 2    average clarity

6  Rosa Divina   eventful mc debut........shuffled back and ran wide for a total of about 6 lengths of trip trouble........only got beat by 5 3/4 for the win........smooth things out and a little tighter for her 2nd lifetime start and she should be tough 

7  Frannie'sspirittoo    not crazy about 2 turn racing......back to a sprint today where her race at 1/2 furlong further than today's 7F affair fits fine at this bottom maiden claiming level

9  Coco de Carchy   exits a very fast mdn20K where running 2nd and getting beat by 8 3/4 lengths still worked out to be a par like race for the recent 3F drill hints that even more can occur today

3  Thames Valley


race 3    average clarity

4  Tricky Shane   GG invader is definitely on the right end of the learning curve.........all 3 turf races run at Golden Gate seemingly fit at today's claiming level.....may have caught a weak local bunch

6  Ariel Artist    just fired his lifetime best 2nd out after the claim by Aguirre.........that race was a turf sprint..........fits solidly if can produce similar long on the grass this afternoon

3  Meringue Pie   looks loose here and if his jock can set an easier pace than he did in his last he likely would have a decent shot at going wire to wire


race 4    average clarity

3  Awesome Address   nice win in last for this Shirreffs runner and today is his 3rd start after a layoff and historically speaking John Shirreffs is often at his best in that situation

5  Magnum Force   on the improve since becoming a route horse........and I sure like that crafty Mike Smith knows him well having ridden the horse numerous times

1  Sinfully   another improving sort but this one will need the trend to continue in a big way this afternoon

2  Solid South


race 5    average clarity

2  Star Rocker    consistent sort on conventional dirt and the synthetic but his pedigree suggests he might be best on the turf and he gets his first shot on it today

8  Art Official   1st turf route race ever in latest should help him finish much better in a turf sprint today which has been a bit of a problem in the past

4  Troy Story    0 for 18 and counting but he might be facing the weakest field he has ever seen........and lifetime best is with today's jock aboard

5  Heat Flash


race 6    average clarity

3  Ubelongtomemissy   not much in latest but a big effort 2 races back and this filly has a good history of rebounding off of poor efforts in the past

2  Brooklyn Rose     big step up in last and crushed the field.......takes another major step up off of the claim back by Hess at twice the price that he lost the horse for........last might be a fit but he probably needs a little more today

7  Heart Stealer   solid prolonged work regiment for this Baffert laid up runner.......fits if his hard a.m. work pays off with a top effort fresh off of the bench

9  Corlett Drive


race 7    slightly above average clarity

5  Gelila    2 of 3 lifetime grass races are very good for this level..........and the work tab showing hints that Shirreffs means business in a big way this afternoon

6  Willetta    seems better suited to distance turf racing and didn't run too badly in a turf sprint race in his that turf sprint he closed well despite a lack of pace up front

2  Pink Blossom   lead type only doesn't have a lot of staying power so most likely Maldonado will need to slow things down early for this Headley runner to win this

3  Salleria


race 8    average clarity

5  So Brilliant   both lifetime races run fresh off of the bench are very solid efforts for this Baffert runner........and the four year old colt is 1 for 1 on the AW........fresh today and training well

3  Doyouseemecoming   last was solid moving 3 wide into a solid pace to win his last which was the first time he ever ran at six panels

4  Bank The Eight   six year old has a good history when competing in allowance affairs........I am a touch leery of his ability to run back to back strong efforts or he would have been rated higher


race 9    average clarity

3  Gangnam Guy   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime start and 1st time running on Lasix........repeat of his last will make him a top contender

5  Southern Digs   last two drills for this O'neill runner suggest he is sharpening up at the peak time......that being right before his debut

2  Tamarando   tightly spaced prolonged work tab might have this Hollendorfer 1st time starter ready to roll in his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing

4  Charisma Code

8  Better Bet

6  Salt Power
