The Card at Del Mar looks interesting today, thought I would take a crack at it...
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 (WIN double PLACE).
Look for value. Any selection going to post at odds higher than 5-1 is a value play.
My selections are just a heads up to take a second look during your handicapping.
Do your research and make up your own mind. Don't blindly bet these selections.
