It's difficult enough to handicap the race. It's even more difficult to handicap the handicapper. Will he take the easy way out and go with what appears to be the best horse, even though the price will not offer sufficuent value, or will he reach out on the value line just a little and find a legitimate runner whose price will make his readers applaud? My hunch is that he will tend toward the latter.
As such, I'll guess his pick is DADDY NOSE BEST at odds of 18-1.
