#1 PRAYER FOR RELIEF is scratched.

#2 FLAT OUT has a full profile over on the excellent At The Races site. 4-1.

#3 DROSSELMEYER could grind on for a little piece but looks about 50-1 on the win end.

I’ve never been a big fan of #4 RULER ON ICE and this seems like an odd time to jump on the bandwagon, no? He does get a nice pull in the weights from To Honor and Serve in the Pennsylvania Derby but I’m not sure that’s enough. Usable as the longest of longshots though (a lot of people who know will be surprised I just typed that). 25-1.

I cover #5 SO YOU THINK in both written form and also via the magic of internet video” for my pals over at the Twinspires blog. 10-1.

#6 ICE BOX and #7 RATTLESNAKE BRIDGE look like legitimate 100-1 shots to me.

#8 GAME ON DUDE is one of the ones I liked enough to profile. 8/1.

#9 STAY THIRSTY will need to find some serious improvement. As a late season three-year-old trained by a shrewd conditioner, that’s not out of the question. But I still have to call him 20-1.

#10 HAVRE DE GRACE gets a write-up here. 4/1.

#11 HEADACHE is a member of the 100-1 club.

#12 UNCLE MO is a tricky read. For At The Races, I mostly took the positive view but I am growing more cynical as the race draws near. Call him 6/1, knowing he could run like he’s 6/5 or 65-1. . .

#13 TO HONOR AND SERVE gets a profile here 8-1.

CONCLUSION: While I make FLAT OUT and HAVRE DE GRACE the most likely winners, I’m also very interested in GAME ON DUDE. TO HONOR AND SERVE is worth a long look/exotics inclusion as well.
