14 #14 Mohaymen (10/1) - Excellent recent workout, could go wire to wire.
19 #19 Brody's Cause (12/1) - Nice improvement last out, ready for big step up.
17 #17 Mor Spirit (12/1) - Very consistent, should hit the board.

Bob Gregorka
9 #9 Destin (15/1)- This year Pletcher has done the best job bringing a good horse up to run a supreme effort in Derby.
11 #11 Exaggerator (8/1)- Just can't ignore the Deso Bro's horse off his last effort.
7 #7 Oscar Nominated (50/1)- Keeps improving, just came off a great workout. Both Trainer and Jock on fire - the stars align for this year's Derby surprise.
3 #3 Creator (10/1)- Another colt who improves every time he steps on the track, with a dangerously good trainer.
