From WAVE:

Why he'll win:

His dominating victory in the Gotham was one of the fastest and most impressive victories of the prep season. He had an excuse when fourth in the Derby with a bad trip literally from the start. Thunder Gulch in 1995 and Sea Hero in 1993 also finished fourth in the Blue Grass and then won the Kentucky Derby. Dale Romans has been nibbling around a Derby victory, and finally can get the race he covets most in his hometown. Mineshaft is a son of A.P. Indy, both stamina influences, and he’s out of a mare sired by 1999 Derby runner-up Menifee. He’ll only improve at 1 1/4 miles. Haven’t we seen this before, where jockey Robby Albarado gets hurt and his Derby mount goes on and wins with somebody else? (See Animal Kingdom in 2011.)

Why he won’t:

Secretariat is the only Gotham winner to win the Derby, and no one is confusing J Boys Echo with Secretariat. His final eighth-mile (13.3 seconds) and final three-eighths of a mile (38.5 seconds) in the Blue Grass suggest he’s up against it in the Final Fractions Theory that says to eliminate horses who finish their last prep in more than 13.0 and 38.0. Thunder Gulch, Sea Hero and 50-1 Giacomo aside, the vast majority of horses who win the Derby finished third or better in their final prep.
