Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Promising pick at Gulfstream

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet analyst)

The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.

On Friday's top plays, Eve of War won at Gulfstream and paid $7.40. Ragtime Blues won at Oaklawn and paid $6.60.

GULFSTREAM PARK - RACE 5 - Post time 2:46 ET

4-Ashiham (9/2)

Displayed real promise in his debut when finishing with purpose to be a closing fourth in a fast, highly-rated six-furlong sprint that was simply too short for him. An $800,000 son of Tapit and a grandson of the remarkable race mare Azeri, this good-looking chestnut colt has trained nicely since that race, gets an extra furlong to work with, and seems certain to produce a substantial forward move in his first start since joining the Todd Pletcher barn. There’s good wagering value at his morning line of 9/2 if you can get it.

OAKLAWN PARK – RACE 7 – Post time 5:14 ET

4-Sneaking Out (7/2)

Away since last summer but training like she’s ready to return in peak form, this talented California-bred filly is eligible to this second-level allowance race even though she’s a two-time stakes winner and Grade-2 placed. Back in the Jerry Hollendorfer barn, the daughter of Indian Evening is more than fast enough on numbers to beat this field and lands Joel Rosario, so at 7/2 on the morning line, she’s a strong straight play and rolling exotic single.
