Del Mar - Friday 17th August 2018

  • At The Races
  • 00:00 - Race 1 - Maiden Special Weight

    DON'T BLAME JUDY has hit the crossbar on both starts so far and is fancied to go one better. Dearborn's latest third here last month puts her in the frame, while Ever So True could get involved if ready to go on her first start since the turn of the year.

  • 00:30 - Race 2 - Claiming

    PSYCHEDELICAT justified favouritism to score when last seen out at Santa Anita in January. Jerry Hollendorfer's colt is a solid sort at this level and is fancied to defy his absence. El Asesino and Face Of Victory may fare best of the rest in a tight little contest.

  • 01:00 - Race 3 - Allowance Optional Claiming

    MUSIC BABE showed up well in fourth in a decent little contest at Monmouth latest and can regain the winning thread, having displayed a good attitude to land her previous two races. A Walk In The Park and Rolling Shadow had a few of these in behind when second and third respectively here last month and the duo head a list of potential dangers.

  • 01:30 - Race 4 - Maiden Special Weight

    SUPER SOL showed up well when a bronze medallist on his debut at Santa Anita back in the spring and can put that experience to good use, if none the worse for his subsequent layoff. He's Stylish is more exposed but has maintained his form and rates the danger, while Montmartre is another to bear in mind.

  • 02:00 - Race 5 - Maiden Special Weight

    PUSH THROUGH had reserve runner The Hunted back in third when a silver medallist over track and trip latest. Edward Freeman's gelding is progressing with racing and is taken to get off the mark. Gold N Bold rates a live danger after three solid efforts to date and is fancied for the forecast ahead of the consistent, but more exposed, Minister's Glory.

  • 02:30 - Race 6 - Allowance Optional Claiming

    SECRET SPICE has been campaigned at a higher level and this appears a gilt-edged opportunity for her to record a second career success. The consistent Rooms should have her say, while last-time-out Los Alamitos winner Chickatini and Twirling Apples are also noted.

  • 03:00 - Race 7 - Stakes

    TOUCHING RAINBOWS ran well to finish third at the highest level here last month and a similar level of performance may be enough for him to take the spoils. Stormy Liberal had Tribalist and Right Hand Man behind in the places when landing a fourth career victory last time out and rates the danger.

  • 03:30 - Race 8 - Maiden Claiming

    JUMP THE TRACKS has been running creditably in defeat in stronger events and is taken to reward the patience of connections. Thefourfortyfourth, Clem Dela Clem and Acclimate also have their sights lowered and rate live dangers to the selection.
