Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Saturday.

Santa Anita Race 3 (5:01 p.m. ET/2:01 p.m. PT)

#6 Priano (5-2)

Was eased in a turf sprint in January and is making his first start since, so we’ll assume there was a reason for the poor performance. The son of Tiznow lands the cozy outside post, shows a healthy, steady series of workouts, and will be tough if he can repeat his Los Alamitos debut win from last December. The Mark Glatt-trained colt is reunited with Abel Cedillo and projects to be on or near the lead throughout, so at 5-2 on the morning line he’s a gamble in the Win pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Santa Anita Race 6 (7:20 p.m. ET/4:20 p.m. PT)

#2 Connie Swingle (5-2)

Was a thoroughly convincing winner over this course and distance last month and seems likely to score right back in this open allowance sprint for sophomore fillies. She has excellent tactical speed and can quicken when set down, but is likely to go lower than her morning line of 5-2. Use her as a rolling exotic single and a Win play if the price is reasonable.
