TCI Top 10
|1||Social Inclusion||106||Boom or bust? It’s boom for us; His lethal cruising speed should be tough to catch in the Wood.|
|2||Constitution||97||Showed class and ability to stay perfect in the Florida Derby, and got some needed education in the process.|
|3||Samraat||99||Does not need to stay undefeated in the Wood, just needs to be finishing well to set him up for May 3rd.|
|4||Candy Boy||97||Like Samraat, a win isn’t necessary, but he has to be going the right way in the SA Derby, which should get him needed points.|
|5||California Chrome||102||Razor sharp right now and gets a big stage in the SA Derby to prove he can be among the best of his class.|
|6||Conquest Titan||93||A strong closing run under Borel in the Arkansas Derby would put him right back in the thick of things.|
|7||Cairo Prince||100||Zero punch in the FL Derby raises serious concerns about him being over the top, and his chances to draw in.|
|8||Tapiture||99||Horse for Churchill’s course keeps running well and is in great hands; Distance, not quality, could be the main hurdle.|
|9||Hoppertunity||99||Rebel win punched his ticket, so Baffert now keeping him home for SA Derby, where he’ll get measured for class.|
|10||Intense Holiday||99||The track & race didn’t favor his style in La. Derby, but the KY Derby will favor his style; Still needs a big forward step.|
