I’ve got Everfast down for a pretty significant regression in this race, such was the size of his Preakness “jump up”. But with only 9 or 10 horses in the race he could hit the super. Right now I’m thinking about just betting (if I bet) on a Spiniff-Intrepid Heart exacta box and maybe a little on Spin-off to win if he’s over 8 or 10 to 1, which he should be. And maybe a couple of savers on WoW and Tacitus.

Yes, I can see that and again, he is more of a hunch / sentimental thing like Win Win Win was for me. Some horses, I just look at their photos and find they "make my heart happy" and I have no way to explain the why's of this. Some people had that with bodexpress, I did not.
I "think" winner comes from here---IF you don't want to play the chalk --but still waiting on PPs to fill in rest of my angles. Last 2 listed I'm really not sure about but I have a *weird* formula I use and they made it into that framework:
11 of the last 14 Belmont winners have Princequillo in a passing position
BTW, I liked Spinoff in the derby somewhat, but he either didn't like "that" mud at CDX, or he just doesn't love mud. Something to think about, not sure I would play him if track comes up muddy, but I do like him.

Well that's good as all except for one horse that would "match" my post above (winners come from here). I wasn't, however, using that angle when I posted my list. ;) Like I said, I have my own weird angle(s) that usually give me similar results though, but I'm glad to have most all of them in my above post, despite that I didn't use the actual princequillo angle to arrive at them......but happy that they have merit under THAT angle as well. That sort of gives me more confidence that I'm in the right ballpark.
I used to do a big ol' chart and map out all the angles we have used here over the years, but my approach is way simpler now, I only use about 6 or so angles that I personally like, and if I'm wrong I'm wrong. I just do NOT have the time or energy anymore to do 30+ angles or the research that involves.
I didn’t like him at all in the derby, and Pletcher said he didn’t care for the going—and he may not have, but I thought he would regress off his race in Louisiana. One thing I like to look at in the Brisnet pp’s are the CR and RR ratings. If you look at his, he ran a 232 (CR and RR combined) in August then came back in February with a 231 before Boom! He runs a 237 in the La. Derby. I’ve found that anything over a 4 point jump almost always signals a regression in the next outing and sure enough he ran a 233 in Louisville. Same with Tax—230 in the Withers before a 236 in the Wood. He ran a 234 in the derby. It doesn’t tell you who’s getting ready to run a big race but it’s pretty good at telling you who probably isn’t.
Look at Everfast: 228-232-231-231-231-238. If he duplicates that Preakness run I’ll eat my hat lol. But there’s exceptions to every rule as we all know and I’m the last person that would ever try to talk anyone off a horse :)
He had a dream trip ducking inside when it opened up on the rail.
