Timeform head to Hawthorne for their three best bets on Friday...
"Back down in grade, he can come out on top..."
Timeform on Runningfromthefeds
#1 Colonel Klink - Hawthorne R3 (19:55)
Colonel Klink drops back into optional claiming company after finishing a good third in a stakes race last time and ought to take all the beating. The main danger looks to be Little Mighty Man, who was just touched off in a similar contest to this on his most recent outing.
#2 Runningfromthefeds - Hawthorne R4 (20:25)
Runningfromthefeds was a C&D winner on his penultimate start and was then far from disgraced when third in a better race than this last time out. Back down in grade, he can come out on top ahead of Sun Brown and Herbie.
#6 Penalty Shot - Hawthorne R8 (22:25)
In an open claimer, it may pay to take a chance on Penalty Shot, who can bounce back from a poor effort here earlier in the month. That came in a stronger contest than this claimer, and the selection is still relatively low mileage with just ten starts under his belt, so may well get back on track.
