Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Friday.

Del Mar Race No. 1 (3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m. PT)

#7 Ruthless But Kind (4-1)

This lightly raced and progressive 3-year-old brought some serious money ($625,000) as a yearling and displayed considerable improvement in just her second career start last month at Santa Anita when rallying with courage to be second in a similar maiden turf mile event for fillies and mares. She sports a bullet five-furlong workout (:59 3/5, fastest of 14) at Los Alamitos since raced, so we’re expecting the Eric Kruljac-trained daughter of War Front to produce another significant forward move, and with good racing luck and some help up front she appears capable of producing a winning late kick. You can use her in the Win pool and then hook her up in Exactas with #6 Infinite Empire, a close fourth (beaten just a length) in maiden turf router over this course during the summer meeting in a performance that projects her to be in the fray throughout.

Del Mar Race No. 6 (6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT)

#10 Lemon Sushi (5-1)

In a race loaded with early speed, this late-developing gelding should have every opportunity to come right back and win again after defeating a state-bred maiden field sprinting at Santa Anita last month. Bred to route on both sides of his pedigree, the Val Brinkerhoff-trained gelding likely will drop back from his outside draw and then, with the help of the projected race shape, be asked to kick home from the quarter pole to the wire. If he reproduces his sprint speed figures at this distance, there will be decent wagering value to be found at or near his morning line of 5-1.

The Greg Peterson Experience: Doing research during the week and timing the market for FCS football games accordingly can pay off big time. FCS games typically do not receive a betting line until the day of the game, so hitting openers on game lead to tremendous closing line value and large edges.  View more tips.
