Friday 8-10-12: Warm Form heads Allowance

The week of racing at Los Alamitos begins with a nine-race card that has a post time of 7:20pm. The feature race tonight is an Allowance for three-year-old fillies going 330 yards in race 8 in which Warm Form comes off a small layoff and gets a class relief. She was last seen running in the Maiden Stakes in February where she ran a good fourth. Is she a lock? Let's find out.

Race 1:  2-1-6
#2 Chapito-showed speed in local debut (3rd), claimed by hot connections, expect improvement.
#1 Wind in Motion-has speed and drops in class. Has also worked here locally, can steal it.
#6 Last Chance Bobby-40-time maiden still looking for first win. One of these days.

Race 2:  1-6-4
#1 Seperate Checks-drops from trial, was debut winner four-back, solid connections.
#6 Flash N the Boys-good looking maiden win last out, can improve in third start for this bard.
#4 Sassy Carter-takes a slight class drop and comes off of best effort. Sanchez back aboard.

Race 3:  7-2-4
#7 Hot Cinder- first off claim for good combo, has been steadily improving, has good position speed.
#2 Surround-first off the claim, closer, will benefit speed duel between #4 & 6. Jockey is red-hot.
#4 Ashabu-broke good but faded last out, takes big drop, will have to deal with #6 on the lead.

Race 4:  3-2-4
#3 Track a Tac- big improvement in second start for barn, showed good stride, needs to run straight.
#2 Blazin Cartel-colt showed signs of run last out, bred nicely and barn does not drop, can upset.
#4 Hawkarunner-good third last out, good second in debut, needs to only improve a little to win.

Race 5:  2-6-3
#2 Red Hot Babydoll-filly had good debut three starts back, drops in class, small layoff, bullet work.
#6 Feature Malinche-outside post will benefit her, leading rider sticks, needs good break.
#3 Tac It Secretly-ran good fourth at big odds, might need longer distance but worth a look.

Race 6:  5-1-3
#5 Srqh Stylinmochaman-has run against tougher before, outside post will benefit here.
#1 Mtc Aint He Cool- took big step up last time, lightly raced, race two-back looks good here.
#3 Imrockn-drops off restricted stakes, his gate speed is dangerous and can win it here.

Race 7:  5-1-3
#5 Dashin Solo-consistent gelding comes out of good 2nd in starter allowance race.
#1 Blt Oatmeal Cookie-made 3yo debut last out at this level, likes to win races.
#3 Steely-makes 3yo debut here, drops into claiming for first time, has solid works.

Race 8:  6-4-7
#6 Warm Form-gets big class relief, has good speed numbers, great works in preparation.
#4 In Another World-broke maiden last out, will like distance, can repeat with good break.
#7 First Black Magic-the distance might be too far but the gate speed is there. Dangerous.

Race 9:  6-2-3
#6 Saving Shirley-ran a good second last out, towers in time & numbers against these.
#2 Mamas Girl-shows three consistent drills for debut.
#3 Hot to Leave- good third in first start for barn, has experience edge over some of these.

My Plays:

$1 Early Pick Four (Races 1-4)($20):  1,2 / 1 / 2,7 / 2,3,4,5,7

$1 Late Pick Four (Races 6-9)($18):  1,3,5 / 1,5 / 4,6,7 / 6

Good Luck!
I watch horses run around.
