Multiplier  30-1 20-1 94 ** JP: Has won last two with moderate figs. Needs significant improvement to be a factor vs. these.
  by The Factor         MW: Not only does he need around a 15-point Beyer jump, he also needs pace to set him up, too.
  Owner: Gary Barber, Adam Wachtel & George Kerr; Trainer: Brendan Walsh; Jockey: Joel Rosario
   
Cloud Computing  12-1 12-1 96 ** JP: Like that lightly raced colt bypassed Derby to point for this. Final work, on video, quite good.
  by Maclean's Music         MW: His third in the Wood is better than it looks on paper. He ran against a speed bias that day.
  Owner: Klaravich Stables & William Lawrence.; Trainer: Chad Brown; Jockey: Javier Castellano
   
Hence  20-1 15-1 97 11th, 77 JP: Lost position early in Derby, had to go around tiring rivals on far turn. Has a right to improve.
  by Street Boss         MW: Still not sold on his Sunland Derby win two starts back as he was perfectly set up. Not for me.
  Owner: Calumet Farm; Trainer: Steve Asmussen; Jockey: Florent Geroux
   
Always Dreaming  4-5 4-5 102 1st, 102 JP: Unbeaten in all four starts since Pletcher took over, all around two turns, and all by daylight.
  by Bodemeister         MW: Easily best at CD, especially when you consider the other pace players were soundly beaten.
  Owner: Brooklyn Boyz Stables, Teresa Viola Racing Stables, et al; Trainer: Todd Pletcher; Jockey: John Velazquez
             
Classic Empire  3-1 7-2 102 4th, 90 JP: Brutal trip in the Derby. Mugged at the start, forced to rally wide on final turn to avoid traffic.
  by Pioneerof the Nile         MW: Since he had just one representative effort in five months, it makes his Derby try remarkable.
  Owner: John Oxley; Trainer: Mark Casse; Jockey: Julien Leparoux
             
Gunnevera  15-1 15-1 97 7th, 84 JP: Was wide final half of Derby but never really fired. Wonder if he's over the top at the moment.
  by Dialed In         MW: Maybe he didn't like the track, maybe that's reaching. Declining Beyers, might be tailing off.
  Owner: Peacock Racing Stables; Trainer: Antonio Sano; Jockey: Mike Smith
             
Term of Art  30-1 30-1 92 ** JP: Fanned wide into lane in SA Derby, but considering hot pace, should have made bigger impact.
  by Tiznow         MW: Has had four starts this year and wasn't remotely close to winning in any of them. An outsider.
  Owner: Calumet Farm; Trainer: Doug O'Neill; Jockey: Jose Ortiz
   
Senior Investment  30-1 30-1 89 ** JP: Has crossed wire first in four of last five starts, got ideal trip and ride to annex the Lexington.
  by Discreetly Mine         MW: Lucky to win the Lexington. Third place finisher No Dozing was best, and he has since lost.
  Owner: Fern Circle Stables; Trainer: Kenny McPeek; Jockey: Channing Hill
             
Lookin At Lee  10-1 10-1 98 2nd, 98 JP: Had plenty of pace into which to rally, got dream run along rail, best part of the track in Derby.
  by Lookin At Lucky         MW: Several horses ran well away from the rail on Derby Day, but agree on his incredibly easy trip.
  Owner: L and N Racing; Trainer: Steve Asmussen; Jockey: Corey Lanerie  
             
Conquest Mo Money  15-1 15-1 93 ** JP: Repelled all challengers in Ark. Derby before Classic Empire nailed him late. Can be pace factor.
  by Uncle Mo         MW: You could make a strong case that he ran the best race in Ark. Derby. Beyers are light, though.
  Owner: Judge Lanier Racing; Trainer: Miguel Hernandez; Jockey: Jorge Carreno
