Mage won by closing from far back in Kentucky Derby into a hot pace. This type of runner typically loses the Preakness. Will be looking for a horse that is more forwardly placed.
Horses that fit are National Treasure & First Mission. National Treasure has better early speed (ES). Mage has ability to be closer to pace. Could be sitting fourth early.
Mage & National Treasure both get "A" letter grades. Mage is fair value at 6-5 but might go off lower than that. Will be hard to keep that horse out of the exacta with explosive move on turn. Red Route One could close for a piece at a price. Red Route One is only useable underneath.
Blazing Sevens & First Mission are working well. Not a big factor on charts but this observation was useful in Kentucky Derby. CHV spiked out 6 horses that were working well and four of them made the superfecta.
First Mission has an Energy of 100. Winners of races typically have Energy within 5 points of race top. That puts the contender list at First Mission, Mage, National Treasure & Red Route One.
Race gets a bet score of *3* due to Mage having Best Odds of 4-5. The Value on Mage is thus very high but likely inflated. There is no other significant value in race unless you can keep First Mission out of the exacta.
