Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday. He had two winners on Thursday at Saratoga: Robin Sparkles ($8.50) and Data Analytics ($11).
Laurel Park – 7th race. Post Time: 3:58 PT
5 – Clear Vision (8-1)
Back at the scene of his debut maiden win in his first outing since February. If the Jeremiah O’Dwyer-trained colt returns as well as he left, he can spring a surprise in this first-level allowance middle distance affair. The barn’s “go-to” rider J. Toledo takes the call on this lightly raced son of Artie Schiller, who has figures that fit and enough tactical speed to be within range in a race that should have soft early splits. There’s good value to be found in the win pool in Stronach-5 play (Leg A) at or near his morning line of 8-1.
Del Mar – 5th race. Post Time: 4:09 PT
3 – Raymundos Secret (9/5)
Makes her first start since last October for new trainer Phil D’Amato and has a history of firing fresh, both in her runaway winning debut and in her first California appearance last summer over this course and distance following a six month vacation. Recent works have been superb and indicate she hasn’t lost a step, so this lightly raced but talented turf specialist should be hard to catch under top rider Flavien Prat in this second-level allowance miler. At 9/5 on the morning line, she’s win play and logical rolling exotic single.
