Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Friday-Saturday. On Friday, Jeff had two winners: Zainalarab paid $4.30 at Belmont and Scherzo paid $5.60 at Golden Gate.

Race 5 – Santa Anita.  Post: 2:41 PT  

1-Eddie’s Sister (5-1)

Forecast: The daughter of Square Eddie turns back from a route, lands the good rail (always the place to be on this course when the rails are up) and shows a couple of nice, easy training track drills to have her on edge.  In a race with suspect early speed, the Philip D’Amato-trained 3-year-old could be hard to catch if she leaves cleanly from her inside post, so let’s make her a win play and rolling exotic single at or near her morning line of 5-1.

RACE 8 – Santa Anita. Post: 4:14 PT

5-Fratelli (3-1)

Here’s a first-off-the-claim play for Peter Miller (35% with a massive flat-bet profit with this angle) so the raise in class from $16,000 to $32,00 shouldn’t be any issue. The son of Munnings has numbers that fit in this restricted (nw-2) affair, picks up Luis Saez, and sports the high-percentage blinkers off angle. There’s value to be found at his morning line of 3-1 if you can get it.
