I would try a few things. Article corners where there is an article just before or just after the corner can help some dogs. Making the corners easier for awhile and then putting bait right after the corner to reward them for making the corner. You could also work serpentines to help him learn to increase intensity and his confidence. Bait just before and just after. Bait all the way through the turn. Make a true 90 degree corner so there is a very abrupt loss of scent. Track into the wind.
Sometimes I think the dogs start to coast and lose intensity on straight legs and then they miss the corners. You could also do tracks with more corners while making the corners easy.
