Hawthorne   Race 2,   5 ½ furlongs   Claiming $4,000 (3:13 ET)

Best Value Play: #6 Miss La Priss (5/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Rare Action (2/1)

Other Contenders: #2 Discreet Queen (3/1), #5 Naughty and Nice (5/2)

 Analysis: Rare Action has the most impressive resume and gets the nod despite uncertainty over the barn change. Discreet Queen has the back class and could wire this field if she runs back to her last. Naughty and Nice has a career stronger than most of her foes and fits this level well. Miss La Priss had trouble getting photographed in 2013 but her last race showed a tremendous improvement.

Hawthorne   Race 4,   5 1/2 furlongs   Starter $12,500 2L (4:13 ET)

Best Value Play: #6 Sterlingten (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 Iolanda’s Perfect (4/1)

Other Contenders: #2 Bad Boy Peter (3/1) #3 Rancho Viejo (5/2)

 Analysis: Iolanda’s Perfect may have a dislike for the Winner’s Circle but she still looks better than the others. Bad Boy Peter has more than enough class to drown these, of course you wonder why he drops so much. Rancho Viejo has been running against tougher and has a couple of useful works in preparation for battle. Sterlingten may be ignored since he comes out of his maiden win, but he keeps the same connections, has some good speed figures and seems to always being knocking on the door.
