Tote Board Factors

I'm just curious about what people consider to be the biggest factor that influences the tote board's final odds in Harness Racing. I realize it depends on the size of the pool (Lebanon 'barn money effect' is different than BigM barn money) so let's use tracks with win pools in the range of $5000 to $15000.

1. Barn (smart) money or other inside information
2. Handicapping solely from program information
3. Morning Line
4. Early tote action and/or tote movement trends
5. 1 or more whales ($100+ bettors smart or dumb)
6. Expert picks / tip sheets / TV analysts / internet picks

I'll post this as a poll, but I'm more interested on how the factors should be ranked, which might be different than any poll results. Any comments?
.The only sure thing about luck is that it will change.
