The best handicappers in the world need to be ready. There are no inside info tips, and nobody is using this race for a prep. One thing is for sure, you will get your money’s worth…

I have had the data from W/P in my hand all day. I always find something that I like, but it just so happens that I see eight races where we are dead on. My long shot plays are right there. It is good to have a plan, but when it is validated it makes it that much sweeter.

The weekend should be good to me, if only half of the runners go as planned.

I thought I would be alone, or pulled between runners. When I saw the tier levels and comments on paper, I began to write my bets in ink. It is rare when there are so many runners that have a price appear in the same order. I guess that is why, more than ever, you need to get your data downloaded.

On Saturday, I really liked Desert Code in the BC Turf Sprint. When I saw the 20-1 shot in the top tier, I started planning my wagers. For Race #4, when Fatal Bullet was in tier #1 against Zensational, I could not believe my eyes. I have been waiting for this runner since catching my first glimpse in the Kentucky Cup. At 9-2, that is like a birthday present…

The capper for me was that in Race #6, the BC Mile, I liked Court Vision at a solid price. He was in the first tier at 12-1. He had the “should improve” banner, and that was on my mind for quite sometime. He is facing Goldikova, and that says it all right there….

So, if you have not downloaded your data. Get to it, and I think you will be surprised. W/P does very well overall, and on big days they rise to the top with some runners you may have overlooked.  In fact, just today (Thursday), they nailed the Pick 6 at Oak Tree!  So, I am hoping for a big weekend, and I started today with a few spot plays. I was able to build a little bankroll in the last hours that may help me cross the finish line.

Best of luck to you, and I hope we see some great racing. Oh, and by the way, don’t be afraid to take some shots, as prices will be all around these two days.
