An arbitrary cutoff point on Beyer speed figures with the Breeders' Cup Spring is triple digits. If you have been hitting 100 or higher consistently, you are in the picture of contenders. If 99 or below, you are cropped out.
Hence, it's easy to eliminate two of the five longer shots. Delta Bluesman has been below 100 in his past two efforts, while Mind Your Biscuits has yet to break through into triple digits.
Limousine Liberal scored an impressive 104 last time out, but was in the mid-90s the four previous starts.
