Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Long shot at Gulfstream
back to news
The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
Gulfstream Park- 8th race – Post Time 4:21 ET
12 – Givemetwenty (20-1)
Let’s try to blow out up the tote board with this long-shot play. The nicely-bred son of Declaration of War stretches out for the first time in this starter’s allowance middle distance turf affair after closing strongly and galloping out full of run in a recent grass sprint. With the switch to the barn’s “go-to” rider Emisael Jaramillo, this lightly-raced 3-year-old looks extremely well meant for a trainer who has superior stats with the sprint-to-route angle. Definitely worth taking a shot at the price.
Churchill Downs – 8th race – Post Time 4:40 ET
9 – Ashiham (8/5)
Has the classic two-sprints-and-a-stretch-out pattern and looks ready to win while adding blinkers and switching to Johnny V. in this middle distance maiden affair. The Todd Pletcher-trained colt was impressive in a recent bullet drill at the Palm Beach Downs training center (much the best over a workmate) and with continued improvement could develop into a nice colt. He looks pretty solid in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
