The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.


6-Lashara (8-1)

Spun her wheels sprinting on dirt in her debut last month, but that race is best ignored. Today, this much-better-than-shown 3-year-old filly stretches out to a mile and switches to grass, and her workouts indicate she’s a much better mover on the lawn, so we’re expecting massive improvement. At 8-1 on the morning line, she represents a good price chance both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play. 


2-All West (20-1)

Here's a chance to blow out the tote board with a 20-1 bomber. After being given a run in a troubled debut, the son of Flashback stretched out successfully when pressing an easy pace and then kicking clear with to win with complete authority. Today, he moves up into a first-level allowance race and obviously is tackling a tougher group, but this colt clearly is a progressive type, and from where he’s drawn he's very likely to enjoy an ideal ground-saving, pace stalking trip. Let's see what he can do with it.
