Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday.

Saratoga – Race 7. Post 4:12 ET.

2-Stan the Man (7/5)

The veteran son of Broken Vow, a strong runner-up to Firenze Fire in the True North Stakes-G2 in late June, always has been a highly-dependable type (first or second in 13 of 23 starts), and after a brief freshening and healthy recent work tab he should find himself comfortably placed on or near the lead in this year’s edition of the Tale of the Cat Stakes. He’ll race without blinkers today – we always like this angle – so let’s make this John Terranova-trained gelding a win play and a logical rolling exotic single.

Saratoga - Race 8.  Post 4:46 ET.

2- Fetching (9/2)

The Mark Casse barn hasn’t won a race all meeting long, so it’s time to turn things around with this daughter of Afleet Alex, who turns back from a mile and exits the Mt. Vernon S. last month at Belmont Park. A prior winner over the Saratoga turf course, she is dangerous as a late-running sprinter and gets ideal conditions for a major effort in this allowance optional claimer.  Favorably listed at 9/2 on the morning line, she can be backed at that price in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
