Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday. On Thursday, Guardian Moon won ($4.90) and Fresco ran out.

Del Mar - Third Race – Post Time: 3:08 PT

7 – Veteran (4-1)

Shows up in a claimer for the first time and may have found his friends after a pair of disappointing races vs. much stronger maiden special weight foes to begin his career. The Richard Mandella-trained colt continues to impress in the a.m., has the type of early speed to be on or near the lead throughout, and against this band may forget to stop. There is reasonable value at his morning line of 4-1 if you can get it.

Del Mar - Ninth Race – Post Time: 6:09 PT.

7 – Alice Marble (6-1)

Fell far back early and then closed a ton ground through the lane but much too late in a performance that was much better than the line shows. The daughter of Grazen should get serious today, and a series of significant  workouts at Los Alamitos since that outing indicates the Steven Miyadi-trained sophomore has a considerably more early speed than she showed first time out. From a barn that has superior stats with second-timers, she worth a play at 6-1 on the morning line in this California-bred five furlong turf sprint.
