A good Sunday program begins with a $20,000 claiming dash that pretty much boils down to the two morning line favorites, #1 Spot the Diplomat and #2 Capt. Sparrow. The one to beat is Spot the Diplomat, who was blocked badly and lost his chance when trying to make a winning move vs. slightly stronger earlier this month, and if secures clear sailing today he’ll be tough to deny late. Capt. Sparrow exits a tougher race but is still well above his claim level, a solid endorsement from Carava who generally runs his stock where they can win.

Handicapping, in short, refers to analyzing the race to come up with best predicted outcome, or pick. There are many angles when it comes to picking a winner.
