All selections contenders for WIN.
All handicapping done BEFORE scratches and changes became available.
Betting advice: 1 betting unit to WIN: 2 betting units to PLACE.
Look for value. Any selection going to post at odds higher than 5-1 is a value play.

Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that has the power.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
