The Handicappers felt that the consistent Top Quality made for the most suitable line horse here, and his rating remains on 95.
In rating the race this way Solar Power actually runs to a rating of 105. However, the specific race conditions do not allow for more than a 6 points adjustment for the winner and placed horses.
