Thanks for the data. I think the outside posts are a big negative for early speed types. Otherwise not such a big deal. If I loved the 20 horse (and he wasn't the early speed type) I would play him, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't think about it.
I read the Sports Illustrated on Coolmore this AM. In contrast to others here, it just convinced me even more that those horses have no shot. EoDubai worries me a little more. They've eliminated more of the obvious prep errors (the earlier ship has to help, for one thing). HP
