TG has the last Laurel race that Monday Morning Qb and New Commission ran a lot faster than others, so I think you'll get your prices on those two horses. I prefer Monday Morning Qb just because he is more solid at the level and could wind up alone on the lead. People seem to be projecting a fast pace, but it would not be unusual for jocks to slow things down to make sure they get the distance.
There is the risk that the Maryland shippers won't handle the 9f. If that happens, the closer I like is Max Player. I know he's slow, but just visually his races look like he's still a work in progress. On the other hand, I'm not sure I want 9-2 on a horse who needs a jump up to win. We'll see if the morning line is right.
