He may well win but I would have liked to see him in a race prior to this, preferably longer than 6 furlongs. Even if he is as good as many people think, this could be a tough spot. Just look at Hidden Scroll, and that horse had already won at a mile.
Instagrand ran faster as a 2YO in early August than most of these have ever run. Comparing him to Hidden Scroll is odd, as if he runs as well as that one just did, he is about 99% to win the Gotham.
He might lose, any horse can, but he is WAY the horse to beat here.
