The first three races on the 10-race program look fairly chalky. In the opener, #2 Kaffeinator isn’t one to trust but might finally have found a field he can beat. He’s 2-1 on the morning line, so there’s no value. In the 2nd race, #1 Turk is 4/5 on the morning line and he’s the only entrant with a prior race. The first timers haven’t been overly impressive in the morning so he looks like another short priced winner. In the 3rd race, #8 Tuscan Evening cruised to a maiden win down the hill in her U.S. debut and should be odds-on to repeat.

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.
