The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
SEVENTH RACE – FAIR GROUNDS
Makes her first start for the high-percentage Matt Shirer stable following a $50,000 claim and in a sign of confidence from her new connections returns off a six week freshening while being raised to a first-level allowance sprint. She’s also adding blinkers for the first time, catches a field without much early speed, and seems very likely to produce a significant forward move. There’s good gambling value at or near her morning line of 6-1 both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
NINTH RACE – OAKLAWN PARK
5 – UNIMAGINABLE U (10-1)
Was off slowly and given a run in his sprint debut last month in what should serve as an excellent prep for today’s stretch out in trip. Significantly, the son of Tale of the Cat remains protected in straight maiden company, and the Peter Miller barn has a superb record with second-time starters, so we’re expecting this 4-year-old gelding to improve considerably. There’s some long shot value at or near his morning line of 10-1 if you can get it.
