I had a decent week last week and nailed a nice longshot, so may as well give the tipsheet another whirl.  Here it goes:

California  The Maybe Johnny Handicap  G1  

7-Roses of Purple  7/2-Won last 5 straight and won Ugly Breeders on this track last outing, repeats.

1-Street Mill  9/2-Finished second behind top choice in Ugly Breeders, never worse than second on grass.

3-Tears in Seattle 4/1-In top three in last five starts, was third in Ugly Breeders, could be a repeat trifecta with all three picks.


California  The Sorgento G3

2-Bossyruler   10/1-Won last two races at 16/1 and 12/1.  Last was in listed stakes with 84 SP.  2 year old seems to like 6.5 furlongs and seeks third straight.

5-Og Gemologist Mo  9/1-Stretch runner closed well to win listed in last, adds distance and may proof to be even tougher.

13-Hope On Fire  7/1-Undefeated in three starts, not out of the picture.


New York  The Honored Miss  G2

13  Rubinetto  7/1-Proofed self worthy with G1 win in Princess Looney in last, can extend win streak to five in this one.

2  Angel’s Trumpets  4/1-Won G2 Virginia Madison followed by pair of seconds in G1 races, might be right time to get that G1 reward.

3  Paddy Wells  6/1-Hasn’t been worse than second in well over a year, steps up to G1  company and fits in well.


New York  The Hit Me Handicap  G1

12  Cadet’s Reward  7/1-Speeds over 110 since last October.   Won Oaktree and just missed second in Barry Foster and Spurs Handicap.   In top form.

3  Downright Deadly  9/1-Nine furlongs has been good distance for this rabbit.  Rabbit will be hunted by the field.

4  Commonwealth Cadet  14/1-Another Cadet horse and another rabbit that likes nine furlong distance, adds value to trifecta.


New York  Exam Stakes  G1

12  Cruisey Caat  7/1-Hates to lose and has won 9 of 12 career starts, including last six.  Could be lucky #7.

10  Atom Storm  8/1-Finished second behind top choice in last (The Priceless), could take down the champ.

9  Malibu Tempest  17/1-May be a bit underrated, ITM in all 10 dirt starts.  Last three at G3 level and comes off winning effort.  Gets chance to earn respect.


New Jersey  The Matchmaker  G3

9  Starface  7/1-Has won five of last six.  Moves up a level and form looks fine.  Top choice.

3  The Devil Decides  3/1-Looks to be open race.  Eclipse Winner has had rough time this year but has chance to get things back together in this one.

2  Will Name Later  7/1-Late runner moves into grade level, needs to shake off poor outing in last.


New Mexico  Big Dessert Stakes  G2

4  Hewhositsonhigh  5/1-Beat several of these in Little Rock Stayer, figures to come right back with another.

10  Feelin’thefeelin’   8/1-Made grade level debut in last in Little Rock Stayer finished 2nd to top choice.  Will try again to wire field.

11   Send in the Giants  6/1-Notched 110 speed in allowance in May, followed by 112 in listed win in last.  Has 3 wins in a row and form looks promising right now.


Virginia   Booker T. Handicap  G2

1  Chcolate Comfort  5/1-Speeds of 114 or higher in last three in listed stakes.  May be best time in career to gain grade level win.

7  Westmire Moon  4/1-First or second in last four and has been strong with 116-118 speeds.  Should continue is success.

6  Warmouth  16/1-Surprised at 21/1 when moving into listed in last start.   Lightning may strike twice.


Iowa  Middle of Nowhere Sprint  G3

12  De Calidad  9/1-Displaying solid form all year long and earned G2 win in last The Smile.   Well set to earn another one.

14  Buzzedcat  6/1-Has raced very well in listed stakes but struggles in grade level.  Chance to get things squared away at this level.

3  Diamond Ink  8/1-Ran a nice third in Foolish Tom in last start, missing by under a stride.  May find breakout in this event.


Oregon   Arklow  G1

9  Settle For Fame  4/1-In 26  turf starts, has been 1st or 2nd 24 times.  Hard to ignore those results.

8  Darci’s Charm  9/1-For past year has finished first or second in each start.  Won CVBears Hometown in last on good surface.  Worthwhile shot to repeat on dry track.

1  Malibu Money  12/1-Five race win streak came to an end when running in QLD Snowy Sprint for first time in graded.  Finished third in race with strong late effort.  Offers nice value.


Japan  Fried Rice Mile  G2

6  Life Imitates Art  5/1-Speeds have been amazingly high and have been holding there (114-122) all year.    Record of 6-2-0 in 8 turf rides has been solid.  Gains third straight graded win.

4  Way of a Comeback  13/1-Outsider caught my eye with late run ability.  If he can get going a tad earlier, he may find paydirt.

1  Casino Spirit  7/1-Has front running ability and may have something left to pick up a piece of the pie.


Spain  Snownut Handicap  G2

3  Ruler of Galaxies  9/2-Three for three going mile distance.  Tries luck with jump to graded company.

6  Umbrella Stroller  7/1-On streak of 5 straight wins with last two in listed at 7.5f and previous trio at mile.   Back to mile and streak may be extended.

8 Flash to the Fox  5/2-Favorite closed steadily in Wizzer Stakes last May to put field away by 2 with strong 115 speed.  Earns respect and not out of the hunt.


Ireland  The Young Lady  G2

4  Officer on Deck  5/1-After trio of wins, two in listed, this gal took a third in Cherry Hilton.   Can come right back.

13 Boarhills  7/1-Two year old has won four of five and last with 82 speed in listed.  Front runner capable of lasting the distance.

12  Pro Hart  9/1-Made mild late move in 5f Why You Buggin.   Gets more distance and late move could have more meaning this time out.


Ireland  The Firebird  G1

1  Weaver’s Warrior 4/1-One to beat with three straight and last was Coventry Steaks (yes, that spelling is name of race) with 85 speed.   Keeps perfect record in place.

6  Waki Hadda 12/1-Late runner upset field in Norfellow Stakes.   Added distance will be added bonus.

5  A Messanger  5/1-Solid bred colt has two races, both wins.  Maiden win with G3 Mother Lois that he won photo.   Faces a bit tougher here.


Argentina  Trixy Delight’s Special  G3

14  The Bonsun’s Blade  7/2-Hard to ignore this two year olds 88 speed in listed stakes finishing second.  Earns top spot.

11  Crime Doctor  9/1-Showed nice late kick in Manor Bashford finishing second.  Going mile buys more time to get job done.

2  Afleet Storm Bird  11/1-Strong late runner with win and second.  Going mile may find this bird flying in front.
