The likeliest pacesetter is London Lane (6-1) given that he tried virtually the same tack in the G1 Sword Dancer going a mile and a half and held fairly well late after an enervating run on the pace. He made a strong, wide rally to win a Canadian G2 prior at a shorter trip.
We envision Hyper (5-2), winner of the John's Call and previously second to London Lane, as the most probable winner, even if Boisterous (7-5) has won six times over the Elmont ground. Javier Castellano owns just the right amount of aggressiveness to put the Chad Brown 6-year-old in winning position.
Taking Hyper to win at 2-1 or greater and key boxing him first and second with his rivals above.
