The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.


1-Wild Popit (4-1)

In his recent maiden win, the son of Tapit was shuffled back early to lose position but suddenly took hold behind horses entering the lane and accelerated impressively to win as much best. This will be his first try around two turns but we think he’ll love the extra ground and be capable of handling the class hike. At 4-1 on the morning line, he’s a strong win play and rolling exotic single.

​​​​​GULFSTREAM PARK - RACE 9: Post 4:53 ET

7 – Mintd (10-1)

Talented Irish-bred 4-year-old filly was a pleasing winner of her U.S, debut at Tampa Bay Downs last month, overcoming a slow start and a very wide trip without cover to be along in time while earning a representative speed figure. She has done some excellent work in the morning since that race and though tackling a much tougher field today offers long shot value at 10-1 on the morning line.
