Guest handicapper Matt Bernier uses DRF Formulator to take a closer look at Thursday’s Pimlico card. Race 1 Trainer Dane Kobiskie’s stats with adding blinkers may require a rethink among those considering Mighty Oak (6-1 ML) for the win slot. Formulator Fact: Kobiskie is 0 for 7 the past five years with second-time starters sporting blinkers for the first time. However, it is worth noting that of those seven different runners, four ended up in the money and another finished a closing fourth.

Guest handicapper Matt Bernier discusses the importance of using a value line to uncover overlays and underlays. Creating a value line is imperative when it comes to truly honing one’s wagering skills. Christian Hellmers was the first person to really emphasize to me just how important it is to have an opinion and set a percentage to win on each horse, for better or worse. The beauty of the value line is it allows you to quickly identify where your opinions on a particular race differ from the rest of the betting public – and when to take advantage of that.
