Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Look toward Woodbine, Belmont
back to news
The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
Woodbine – 7th race. Post Time: 4:21 ET
Was one of the most impressive debut maiden winners of the season last November when he overcame a slow start to win by more than seven furlongs in a fast, highly-rated affair over the Woodbine all-weather surface. Returns in the 6F-listed Woodstock Stakes after wintering in Florida, where he worked well enough to expect a major effort in his sophomore bow. The son of Bodemeister should develop into an outstanding 3-year-old. While today’s assignment clearly is a step up in class, he should offer good wagering value at or near his morning line of 3-1.
Belmont Park – 7th race. Post Time 4:32 ET
5 - Cost Benefit-G2 (5/2)
Debuting English-bred filly has done everything in the morning like a top prospect and should be plenty fit and ready for a winning effort in this maiden turf miler for older fillies and mares. The daughter of the top class British stallion Dansili goes for the powerful Chad Brown/Joel Rosario team (42%) and catches a field that she simply should out-class. Let’s hope we can get close to her morning line of 7/2 in both the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
