Hawthorne Race 1, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $8,000 (2:45 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Angel Talk (4/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Silver Rock Star (5/2)
Other Contenders: #1 Enemy Fire (2/1), #5 Surf Cast (7/2)
Analysis: Silver Rock Star ships back to Chicago from Kentucky where he has developed a great resume at Hawthorne. A class drop with his versatile style makes him tough to beat. Enemy Fire seeks a three peat after a rest plus has a good work that signals readiness. Surf Cast is a solid performer and comes back after a layoff with the chance to upset from off the pace. Angel Talk is trained by the capable Michele Boyce and he comes back after a layoff with a string of excellent works. He has a chance to leave the gate first and take them all the way.
Hawthorne Race 7, 5 1/2 Allowance 2X (5:43 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Solar Flair (9/2)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Radiant Day (3/1)
Other Contenders: #5 Lassell (5/1) #7 Gita’s Mahal (7/2)
Analysis: Radiant Day looks to be a monster in this field and returns after a rest with good works. Lassell has a hard time getting to the Winner’s Circle but looks good enough with this crew to turn your head. Gita’s Mahal will play catch me if you can and has notched some good efforts in open company races. Solar Flair is the mystery but runs for the successful Divito barn. A lot of class as a juvenile could translate into a victory today.
