The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
EIGHTH RACE - GULFSTREAM PARK (Post time 4:46 ET)
3 - EVE OF WAR (9/5)
Was highly impressive winning her debut by more than seven lengths sprinting on dirt but then finished fourth as the odds-on favorite in her next start after stumbling badly at the start. A healthy series of drills since that race indicates she's in fine fettle and this stretch out to a middle distance and the switch to grass should bring out her best. The likely controlling speed, she's a strong straight play and rolling exotic single.
SEVENTH RACE - OAKLAWN PARK (Post time 4:06 CT)
8 - RAGTIME BLUES (3-1)
California shipper has more than held his own in recent morning workouts with stakes winners Nadal and Eight Rings, so this Bob Baffert-trained colt should simply out class this maiden field in his first start since last July. The son of Union Rags remains very well regarded despite finishing second in his only prior outing as a heavy favorite, and all indications are that he's ready to show his best stuff. He'll offer excellent wagering value at or near his morning line of 3-1.
