Daily Selection at Betfair Hollywood
Sunday May 19th, 2013 (2 Races Today)
Race 5 #4 Chimi Dee (J. Talamo) 9-2
In a race with loads of speed, her style looks really good here. It appears that Talamo had a few options and chose her in this race.
My only concerns are running into traffic with this large field, but that is always a concern with stretch runners. At least her price should be decent.
Race 9 #2 Don’t Lose Faith (E. Maldonado) 5-2
Here is the situation. I think this girl has a big advantage here. Are you going to get 5-2? , I doubt it. But that morning line may give you some value in the late Pick 4 or Pick 3 etc..
Race 9 #7 Kana Flavor (G. Gomez) 10-1
I don’t usually give out 2 horses in a race , but if you are looking for longshot, this girl fits the bill.
They paid a decent amount for her (for a Swiss Yodeler) and her dam has produced two turf winners from only three starters. Garrett Gomez sees fit to ride which says she must be showing some talent in the morning.
Race 7 #2 Mr. Bossy Pants (E. Maldonado) 7-2 Winner! $6.60
This consistent veteran hits really hard at this level. He should be tucked in just behind the leaders and get first jump on the morning line favorite (#5 Blue Jay Attack). His morning line price is very fair at 7-2.
Race 3 #3 Scooter Bird (E. Maldonado) 6-1 Winner! $10.60
I don’t think we have seen the best of this girl yet. Her post compromised her chances last time and I like her last workout.
Race 7 #7 Zia Zia Zia (M. Smith) 6-1 Winner! $12.20
In a highly competitive contest, this may be the value play here. She should like the turf, has been bet down solidly in her maiden races and trainer Puype is going real good right now.
She has the speed to get good position whether she takes the lead or not.
