Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday. On Thursday, Stunning Princess placed ($4.30) and Financialstability won ($3.80).

Third Race at Del Mar – Post Time: 3 p.m. PT

3 – Border Town (2-1)

Broke slowly, lost position and couldn’t make any impact when a non-threatening sixth in the American Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita last time out, but should regain his winning form today with this drop in class and the stretch-out in trip. With Sadler’s Wells on the bottom side of his pedigree, the son of War Front should have no difficulty handling this mini-marathon trip, so with Flavien Prat staying aboard, the Richard Mandella-trained colt looks solid at or near his morning line of 2-1. 

Fifth Race at Del Mar – Post Time: 4 p.m. PT

9-Bulletproof One (9/2)

Winless is three tries on grass, but looked superb in a quick blowout around dogs over the local lawn five days ago (3f, :34.4h) and catches field without her kind of speed in this five-furlong dash for second-level allowance fillies and mares.  The Peter Miller-trained filly is reunited with “win rider” Ricardo Gonzalez and from her outside draw should be capable of popping to the lead and taking her rivals gate to wire. At 9/2 on the morning, she’s a strong win play and rolling exotic single.
