Dr. Shane (#5)
Was compromised by a very slow pace last time (indicated by blue color-coding in the PPs).
There is much more speed in this race, so he should get a decent pace to close into.
May have really appreciated the cutback to 5 1/2 furlongs last time.

Has worked well over the Saratoga main track in recent weeks.
