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.
