The Friday opener sees #4 Schill listed as the 8/5 morning line favorite, but we’ll try to beat her using #3 Quite a Stormkat and #5 Mini Do. The former moves up two levels in class following a sharp, highly-rated score and a similar try today makes her a bold threat right back. The latter returns to her claim level and can act at any surface. She’ll take them as far as she can on the front end.

The 2nd race looks like an ideal spot for #4 Flashover in her first try on turf (she’s bred for it).

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.
