Del Mar for Thursday 8 August 2013


Race 1 Average Clarity
6 Love Tale - Showed improved pace in last and has followed with 2 strong works, has figs that fit and a big turf jock upgrade
5 Secret Cove - Consistent sort draws the meet's top gun for 2nd out after a layoff and in West's barn, big shot
4 Distant Image - looks to get a good stalking trip, Cerin has been phenomenal when he takes the blinks off


Race 2 Average Clarity
7 Patty Wack - takes the ever important drop out of the MSW ranks, has some tactical speed in a race devoid of it
5 Swiss Sugar - looks like the speed though his debut was pretty slow paced, dangerous but probably overbet
1 Inherit the Throne - has had luck in all 3 starts, all bad between the posts and the paces, draw inside may change the flow
4 Lovely Instinct


Race 3 Slightly Above Average Clarity
1 Horsesanddivorces - training brilliantly for her return to the race wars, speed of the speed + rail + top speed jock = gone
4 Atta Girl Alma - best figs in the field makes her the best of the closers, should get the trip
6 Nava Nataly - lone turf effort at this track and trip was solid, off for 9 months but training strong and Amescua spots his limited stock well
2 Promiscuoussuances


Race 4 Average Clarity
3 Rolanda - best effort was lone route on the AW, works say she'll like DMR even better than BHP
1 Rhodium - rail speed has been tough so far at the meet, 1 for 1 at the distance, AW a ?
2 Awe'some Kitten - keeps getting better and better, a little concerned about 3 races in a month, but should get a perfect rail trip


Race 5 Slightly Below Average Clarity
7 Diamond Bachelor - superb turf and distance breeding, always tough to win at a route in debut but all systems look like a go
5 Carson's Ten - wondering if that stakes excursion was just a workout, turf/route looks to be his real game
6 Bourne Hot - flashed decent speed in debut, wouldn't be surprised if he got loose against these
1 Oso Smart


Race 6 Average Clarity
2 Woebegon - claim box superstar won last despite being against the bias, continues to train well for latest connections
5 Appealing Resume - layoff run is even more hidden than the top pick, strong works and a return to her best distance makes her the surprise package
6 Justalittleloopy - GG runners have translated well to DMR, proven fresh and Sherman is strong with shippers
1 Joyce and Me


Race 7 Slightly Above Average Clarity
5 Miss Ellany - continues to train well after a monster effort last out, other speed to contend with but appears up to the task
4 DancingtotheStars - most likely to get first jump on the other off pace horses and pick up the pieces if the speed falters
6 Hard to Resist - Quality deep closer should get enough pace, but can she outclose the 4?


Race 8 Below Average Clarity
8 Riseseastsetswest - 8 lengths of trouble in last and only lost by 6, nice work since and a jock upgrade
3 Ancient Stone - has some tactical speed in a race without much, can run fresh and Rosales' stock has been outrunning its odds
5 Bardy - ran well here last year and may do the same 2nd after the long layoff
1 Chocolatier
7 Neil Healy
12 Mr. Fitzramathorn
