Del Mar for Sunday 11 August 2013


Race 1 Average Clarity
4 Marine Fog - veteran has been working well for his new barn, should get a good stalking trip
3 Faster Action - speedy sort has other pace to contend with, but Raffy landing here is a sign he can handle it
5 Always the Same - took a big step forward in last, but the effort 6/9 is what we want (lots of trouble)
6 So Far So Fast

Race 2 Above Average Clarity
1 Magic Channel - ran a huge fig in 1st NA start, concerned about bounce and Leparoux going elsewhere but interim works are strong
2 Horizon Sky - Leparoux coming here is reason enough to like, should get a good rail trip
5 Los Bambinos - owns a good looking win at the trip, albeit at GG, another who should get a good trip
6 Dirty Swagg

Race 3 Slightly Below Average Clarity
10 Spotted Owl - lots of trouble in last, blinks added and the works have improved
9 Divine Notion - love work pattern for 2nd after a layoff, like to see Talamo stay
7 Valid But True - broke slow and rushed into a decent pace, better break gives him a big shot
3 Market Portfolio

Race 4 Slightly Below Average Clarity
3 Fanticola - strong against the bias effort after a year absence, move forward 2nd out would make her tough
5 Elusive Luci - Raffy doesn't ride often for Yakteen who is strong in all the relevant categories for this 1ster
4 Not My Tap - another who ran well off a long layoff, expect more today
2 Nero's Pleasure
Longshot 11 My Looloo - lone start in December was solid, training well and Hendricks is having a strong meet

Race 5 Slightly Above Average Clarity
10 This One's for Mel - one other pace horse to contend with but doesn't need the lead, big move forward in last
8 Cacau - the other speed, distance a ? but love that last work
2 Little Jerry - needs a bounce back to his 6/27 race, presence of Smith a good start
5 Tebow's Big Play

Race 6 Average Clarity
5 Dance With Fate - lots of trouble in debut, interim works are very impressive
1 Uncharted Course - another with multiple debut trouble, trainer could use a winner
3 Southern Freedom - big outside close on a rail/speed day, needs more pace than anticipated
2 American Pride

Race 7 Average Clarity
6 Bottle Blonde - Hollendorfer claim sports some improved works, should get a good stalking trip
3 Daddy's Song - legged up with a turf route and follows with a bullet work, needs to avoid a speed duel
9 Lady Rosamond - red flags abound on the drop, but will be very tough if I'm wrong
5 Majestic Stinger

Race 8 Average Clarity
4 Customer Base - improving figs and works say that trend will continue
2 Tiz Flirtatious - obvious favorite but the inconsistent works raise some questions

Race 9 Average Clarity
12 Mr. Make Believe - working very well for the return off a 2 month freshening, speed to overcome tough post
8 Maybe Tuesday - major trainer and jockey upgrades, 'nuf said
5 God of War - try and catch me
7 Would You
3 Malibu Affair
1 Joe Carl
