Has been overmatched in his recent dirt races.
Ran better than it appears last time when racing on a dead rail in the stretch at Laurel.
Handled two turns over the inner track last season.
30-1 on ML
Sol the Freud (#10)
Got the wrong ride last time, rating wide against a pronounced rail bias.
Responded well to a more aggressive ride two back, when he won at this level.
The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting a situation that favors horses on or near the lead; he will be chasing the pace early.

James Lane (#1)
Lost momentum when angled off the gold rail in the stretch.
