I’m back it with multicapper.com to provide some selections in their daily contest. Yesterday at Belmont I had 3 winners to start the card, then matters trailed badly, as I finished somewhere back in the pack. I’m aiming for a stronger showing today.
The challenge with multicapper is that I have to be psychic…to get my top 3 in as exact order as possible. I don’t know how some people manage to get pretty close race in and out.
Here are my top 3 for the 9 races at Arlington. I had factored in all-weather, rain, no also-eligibles, and all main track only selections in this mix as I am anticipating an off track, always dangerous to assume in advance when you can’t change picks later:
Race 1: 2-3-6. 5 was my third choice, but is scratched. I actually am not allowed to get the post-time favorite for a scratched horse, so only my top 2 count.
Race 2: 5-4-6
Race 3: 7-3-6 7 is a scratch. I’d play 1 after 3 and 6.
Race 4: 6-3-2 2 is a scratch. 7 should replace.
Race 5: 4-9-6 With 9 as the scratch, make it 4-6-3
Race 6: 6-5-7
Race 7: 2-1-8
Race 8: 3-1-6 3 is a scratch, so I’d go with 1-6 -4. This might keep Scat N’ Go, the 1, as a value pick on top, the only I have on this card.
Race 9: 3-11-9
Follow me at @idealisticstats on that Twitter thing as I have picks later for Emerald and Remington. There are just 4 more days at Emerald for me to reach the cash position but I’m $100 away from that mark. Here’s hoping I can score a few bombs, which have been absent from me a while. At Remington, I’m just happy to survive in their contest.
