Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers Best Bets Thursday-Saturday.

Saratoga - Race 5: Post 3:02 ET.

3-Robin Sparkles (5-1)

Flashed big speed before faltering badly in her debut over a sloppy track last month at Belmont Park, a poor run that allows for this a class drop into a woefully weak affair. Certainly bred for grass (Elusive Quality) while retaining Jose Ortiz, the Bruce Brown-trained sophomore may be the quickest in the field and offers good wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play at 5-1 on the morning line.

Saratoga - Race 10: Post 6:18 ET.

10-Data Analytics (9/2)

Had trained well as a 2-year-old prior to her debut last fall. But after being set off as a strong favorite, she failed to show much and wound up well-beaten, after which she was sent home. A series of solid drills at Monmouth Park should have her plenty fit for her return and the Chad Brown barn hits at 29% with layoff runners, so in a field in which nothing else appears attractive let’s go with the fresh face at 9/2 on the morning line.
