Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Friday (8-27)

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet analyst)

Saratoga - Race 4:  Post: 2:47 ET

5-Montebello (3-1)

Failed to change leads but otherwise was quite impressive breaking his maiden at first asking in open company at Del Mar earlier this month while earning a good speed figure.  He deserves extra points for having won from the rail and displaying reserve energy under heavy pressure that a lesser colt wouldn’t have found.  Today’s extra half-furlong won’t be an issue at all, so if he breaks well and gets his footwork down properly the son of Curlin can handle this New York-bred stakes for B. Baffert.

Del Mar Race 6:  Post: 6:00 PT

3-Miss Bigly (8/5)

Returns from the Midwest in much better form than she left, and if she repeats any of her last three races the P. D’Amato-trained mare will be hard to beat in this year’s renewal of the restricted Tranquility Lake S. over a mile on the main track.  Runner-up in two listed stakes races while earning strong speed figures, the daughter of Gemologist has been freshened since late June but shows a local work tab that should have her plenty fit.
