Wardian, Olson and Herron have ZERO multi day experience.
Predicting that they would do well is like saying a good 1500 meter runner would crush the marathon.
This is expected letsrun style. Most here think that the top Marathon runners would crush all ultra running records. Anybody who has a little knowledge about ultra running knows that is not possible.
Wardian, Olson and Herron are fine runners but it would have to be seen what they can do in multi day races.
Wardian seems to be the most flexible of all of them. So I would give him the highest chance of succeeding in a 6 day race.

I would agree with that.
Indeed, his frequent racing (and having a fair amount of roads mixed in) and even his recent Israel National Trail FKT (1000+ km) would indiciate some level of promise. What / How much? Who knows. The others don't really enter this conversation altogether. (how would Bolt do in a 5000?)

That sounds like a multi day. What did he do there. Is there a link for this?
It was. I suppose best compared in length / duration to the Colorado Trail, etc. You'd have to gather details from various sources online, but I linked the most condensed version below. He does has a number of actual and, what amount to, stage races. This supported FKT was his first proper multiday effort. 1016 km / 631 miles in 10d:16h:36m
