Loved the link.
The 5/2 morning line on Nadal seems high to me, but we'll see. Since he hasn't run that fast and needs to answer the 2-turn question, I'll have to go against him as the favorite.
On Three Technique, I think Irad was committed to ride a Baffert (maybe Eight Rings) who ultimately was not sent to the race when it failed to split. Eight Rings hasn't run since the Breeders Cup Juvenile. I have read that Jose Ortiz might have picked up the mount on Three Technique, but was still on the sidelines when Saez was given the call. Depending on the odds, I'm considering Three Technique and Basin.
