I am with Frank on the 0-2-X issue for Three Technique. In his last race, he was 0.15 to 1, ridden to take dirt early, and then geared down after quickly disposing of an overmatched field. Irad almost hit him once in the stretch, but appeared to think better of it. He still has the two-turn issue to address, and I agree with Frank that the post and prospective trip are not in his favor. I am not interested at 9/2.
Like you, I think the maiden is interesting, at least underneath. He would need to move forward, but tis the season and he's inside and getting weight (can Geroux make 115?). We'll see if we can actually get 12-1 on a Brad Cox trainee.
I am also considering Lynn's Map. TG had his last race slower than Beyer, and the runner up (Mr. Monomoy) came out of that race to run well in the Lecomte.
Now watch someone wire the field.
