Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Friday (1-7-22)

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet analyst)

Santa Anita - Race 4:  Post: 2:05 PT

2-Lil’s Big Shot (6-1)

Didn’t break sharply, was bounced around in tight quarters down the backstretch to lose valuable position, then finished with some interest without being knocked about while running better the line shows when unplaced in her debut at Los Alamitos vs. maiden $50,000 foes last month.  We’re expecting a much better performance today.  The daughter of Mr. Big looked very sharp in a recent team drill, so at 6-1 on the morning line she’s a gamble at or near that price. 

Santa Anita Race 8:  Post: 4:05 PT

1-Adare Manor (9/5)

Shows the two-sprints-and-a-stretch-out pattern that we love and since her most recent start in November at Del Mar the B. Baffert-trained filly has looked spectacular in the morning.  The daughter of Uncle Mo lands the good rail and seems certain to employ gate-to-wire tactics based the projected race shape.  Her numbers are solid, the switch to Johnny V. is a positive, so we’re pretty much all in on this talented sophomore filly, who is listed as the co-second choice on the morning line at 9/5.
