Probably covered in anotehr topic already, but he is not derby bound. They are saying Preakness and/or Belmont only now

Actually, I've settled on J Boys Echo, because he has a Quarter Horse sounding name.

Radar: Untrapped, Hence, Mo Town, Cloud Computing, Unique Bella, Irish War Cry

Not much to change my thinking this week although I did add a few horses to my radar. I was much more impressed with Hence than I expected to be. I had about as much expectation for the Sunland Derby as I did for the Spiral, which is to say no legitimate contender would emerge but Hence looked good enough for the radar. He looked a bit young and gangly to me so I’m not sure that he’d be ready for a rough and tumble Derby but he finished with excellent energy and came home very quickly for a 9f race. I think there might be a half decent horse in there and if he gets a good trip maybe he could pick up a piece.

I didn’t add Epicaris to my list even though I did think he looked pretty good. I’m not sure that he would actually be good enough. I think that his level of performance would have been enough to win the Spiral but he’d have been touch and go in the Sunland Derby. Overall he’s likely not good enough but he is interesting. Thunder Snow looks like a certain non-stayer that obviously has class. Godolphin shouldn’t send him.

Irish War Cry is back on my radar after news that he is pointing to the Wood. I’m not sure if I could really trust him after his debacle but I do think he has talent.

The connections have already stated that Epicharis will not be coming for the Derby, but might compete in the Preakness or Belmont.
With Epicharis declining to go, that puts Mont Saint Legame (JPN) into the gate as the Japanese qualifier.
