Ron Uchmanís Hawthorne analysis for Sunday, November 28th
6-TOE THE LINE just missed in last after finishing third in his local debut. Few in the rest of the field are in decent form. Seems likely to win at a short price. 4-LORD BOLSTON finished in the money in five of his eight races. He likely to come from far back making him vulnerable to a slow pace but would imagine heís still going to close enough to share. 2-CHOCOLATE BUNNY stretches out. Heís now known for his speed but he might gain a solo lead in a field devoid of early pace. Could cruise along on hold onto the lead throughout.
7-SON OF GRACE has had three races on grass and ran well in all of them. With his good speed heís likely to go right to the lead despite drawing the outside post. It could prove difficult to catch him. 4-BEHAVIN MYSELF hasnít been great on turf but he has had some decent races on the surface. He has shown decent speed at times. Might be competitive throughout. 5-LIGHTNING ROD CARLís third-place finish versus tougher in Indiana in his last outing suggests that heís good enough to win at this level.
5-GREAT PLAINES tired in his lone start but like the speed he displayed early. That race should have set him up perfectly for this one. Could lead throughout. A speed duel does seem likely and is Great Plaines canít put away the competition early, things will set up for 3-GOOD YEGG. Heís had plenty of starts and remains a maiden but he does appear to be one of the better closers in this field. 2-INSIDE THE CIRCLE certainly figures. Like top pick, heís loaded with speed and he has been pretty effective, with seven in-the-money finishes from nine starts. This could be the day he gets over the top.
Giving a slight edge to 1-GEMO RAIN. He was barely beaten in his first start of the meet and he also ran well in all his other local races. Itís been five weeks since his last start but he had a pair of useful drills during that time to keep him on his toes. Carries seven pounds less than he did in last with the apprentice in his irons. That could make the difference. 3-CHICKS FOR FREE finished a bit behind top choice in their last start. He was also moving well late and he also had a good drill in the interim. He came from the pace in that race but he often displayed good speed in the past. 4-AZRAEL drops and turns back in distance. Heís been tiring a bit in his route races but carrying his speed much farther than the six furlongs of this race. The last time he raced at this exact distance, he won by 14 lengths. Canít be taken lightly.
3-RUBY YíALL drops one more time. She was heavily favored in last but had to settle for second place. Think sheíll make amends in this spot. The speedy 1-ASHLEY ELIZABETH returns. She has a couple wins this year but is still eligible for this condition because of the level of those victories. She ran well here in the past. Sheís likely to be gunning for the early lead. Should be right there throughout. 2-LIL BIT TIPSY could fill out the gimmicks. She finished in the money in six of her eight races this year. Finishing third or better here seems likely.
2-PITAMAN could outlast the rest of the speed. His main threat for the front end scratched so heís going to have an easier time getting to the lead but heís still going to have to work at it. 1-EASTER MUSIC moves up in class but heís riding a two-race win streak and he should get an extremely heated pace ahead of him, setting things up for his late move. Can fly by late. 8-NYOMAN turned in an unusually poor effort in last but this veteran should bounce back in a big way. He needs to go back to his old running style and save his best move for late.
3-VALIANT VINNY has to be caught. He tired badly in last after a heated speed duel but it seems likely that heíll have an easier time getting a solo lead in this race. 2-EL ASESINO isnít quite as quick as top choice but he should never be far back. He finished third in last, coming off a brief layoff. Could improve after that trip. 4-W W CANDY moves up off the claim. He won his last start by daylight and has scored in three of his last four. Heís going to be coming at them late.
4-SUPER SILVER could be in control from start to finish. He was claimed from last, going from one sharp barn into another. Heís been in good form all year and expect that to continue for his new connections. 3-THE LAST OPTION will make his presence felt late. He is coming off a score in a non-winners of three and he won his last two fast track starts. 1-ANTRIMíS GIANT was a non factor in last but this gelding could improve. Heís a seven-time winner here. Should be worth a second look.
