Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Friday.

Santa Anita Race 3 (5:09 p.m. ET/2:09 p.m. PT)

#3 Maxim Moment (7-5)

Finished more than six lengths clear of the rest when runner-up in a better-than-par maiden-claiming sprint two weeks ago and stretches out today for a barn than has very strong stats (20%) with this angle.  The P. D’Amato-trained gelding may find himself as the controlling speed in a race without much zip, so in his third start off a layoff the son of Hard Spun looks ready to graduate as a win play and rolling exotic single.

Santa Anita Race 8 (7:55 p.m. ET/4:55 p.m. PT)

#7 Big Attraction (3-1)

Was given an easy run when a non-threatening seventh in her debut over this course and distance in mid-April, settling off the pace and then finishing without undue pressure before galloping out with some interest.  She should be much more serious today, so in a field in which most of the others have been exposed, let’s go with this daughter of Mr. Big, who seems certain to produce a significant forward move.
