Hawthorne Race 6, 6 furlongs Claiming $5,000 2L (5:18 ET)
Best Value Play: #8 Miss Sun City (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Read to Me (5/2)
Other Contenders: #2 Givem Hell Harriet (7/2), #6 Specialagentncharge (2/1)
Analysis: Read to Me runs for successful connections, keeps his regular rider, drops in class for his second race after a layoff. Givem Hell Harriet may be a little camera shy but she fits with this bunch well. Specialagentncharge is another that is camera shy but ran well last out for a good barn. Miss Sun City gets back the rider that was aboard for maiden win and takes a big drop for her second race after a rest.
Hawthorne Race 7, 6 furlongs Optional Claiming $25,000 2X (5:48 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Annie Bellum (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Nava (5/2)
Other Contenders: #2 St. Louis City (7/2) #7 Fire Tricks (5/1)
Analysis: Nava is as tough as they come and has faced tougher. Her second race back after a layoff should be a lucky charm. St. Louis City is a game and consistent performer from a tough barn and comes back to battle after a rest. Fire Tricks cleared this condition in state company last time, keeps regular pilot and has a bunch of good speed figures over the last year. Annie Bellum seeks a repeat and may have the early speed to steal the race.
