Jim Millers Hawthorne Selections
Friday, January 11
1st #4 Foo Foo Girl (Speed) Between weather and lack of pace to challenge, it appears this one will take this race from start to finish.
2nd #1 Victory Rose (Presser) With the rail draw and potential to show a little bit of speed, this one could be a factor later into the lane.
3rd #5 Angels N Boots (Stalker) Not sure what to make of the debut race. Moves back to dirt as she faces slightly easier. Can improve in here.
1st #2 Lees Luck (Speed) With the shorter field and lack of early pace, he could control things the entire way around on the lead.
2nd #5 Empirestrikesagain. Has a lot of back class and has raced well over this surface in the past. Concern is the big class drop.
3rd #6 Chernyahovskiy (Stalker) Ran an incredible race in last and could easily bounce off that performance. Yet a repeat of the last puts him right there once again.
1st #2 Miss Galilee (Speed) Looks to take advantage of her speed and inside draw. If she can clear she may never look back.
2nd #9 Miss Devine (Stalker) Ran a strong race two back as she got a decent pace to chase. Slow pace did her in last time out.
3rd #8 Mountain Momma (Presser) Ran big efforts in each of her last couple. Should rate close but isnt likely to find the early lead in here.
1st #2 Kyzan (Presser) May be worth a look while at a decent price. With the lack of early pace in here, he could steal this one.
2nd #5 G Gs Secondchance (Presser) This is the other one who could show some speed. Ran a big race off a slow pace in his last.
3rd #9 My Curby (Closer) Looks to run on late and often gets into the mix in the lane. Not a ton of pace upfront to close into in here.
1st #4 Forgot to Forget (Speed) Easily cleared in race here last week and never looked back. Theres a chance he can repeat that performance today.
2nd #9 Ready to Fight (Presser) Really curious about this one. Took off front bandages prior to last and ran big race. Keep an eye on him in the paddock.
3rd #8 Diamond Dave (Closer) One that we wont see a whole lot of early. Has shown that he can run on well late though.
1st #3 Konza Khrome (Presser) Chased in last and really no excuse as he got first run on the winner off a slow pace. Draws well again and should rate close.
2nd #6 Countess St Michel (Speed) Looks to be the most likely one to clear the lead in here. May shake loose early and never look back.
3rd #10 Dorothe Marie (Stalker) Ran a big race in last as she closed off a slower pace upfront. With outside draw in here she will have to work out a trip.
1st #7 Enchanted Rambam (Stalker) With what looks to be a good amount of early pace in here, things may set up for his solid closing kick.
2nd #3 Offlee Fun (Stalker) Another that will likely be helped by the pace upfront. Has been good over this track but distance leaves some concern.
3rd #5 Smooth Bob (Presser) Has run decent races at this distance during his career. Looks to rate close and hang around late.
1st #4 Summer Disco (Closer) Ran a big race in his last as he moved quickly on the turn and drew off late. Helped by pace to chase today.
2nd #6 Hawks Image (Stalker) Looks to rate in the second flight early and run on late. Lets see if he gets the jump on Summer Disco.
3rd #7 Wake Up Joe (Presser) May be helped by the outside draw in here. Will be able to settle off the pace battle and close into the lane.
1st #9 Bobs Mistress (Presser) Makes a quick return off her last but was left to chase the lone pace in that spot. Recent form has been solid in last couple.
2nd #4 Oriental Lady (Stalker) Ran a nice race two back but was in a bit too tough in last. Every right to improve on the class drop.
3rd - #8 Rain Expression (Presser) Runner-up efforts in last couple as she figures to chase the pace. Looks to be a factor in all gimmicks.
