Omaha Beach is position A, speed horses on inside, won't see much in front on the outside. Pace sets up perfect for him as the speed seems to all be drawn on the inside.

Take a look at the pace and most will be breaking on the inside. Biggest wildcard IMO: max Security.
Buzzhorses down there: By my standards and Tacitus.

Rating where the Baffert horses stack up is tough.

Wow, no Mike Smith. I was upset when he chose Omaha Beach over Roadster. I might have to move Roadster up again. I think he would have been the easy favorite if he had Smith aboard, My early upset special so far is Maximum Security. If possible off track, I'm hearing go with Vekoma. His mudder was a mudder. As was his dad.

best race to date in the mud: Improbable

Best breeding for racing well in the slop but haven't really run on it yet: easy. Vekoma and Game winner. ( Same stallion who ran great on off surface)

Sneaky good race on off track: by My Standards and Max Security

honestly think there are 10 horse that can win.. no horses you can trust.

no doubt it could chalk race or all long shots..

I got 8 that can win. Thinking either Vekoma or Max Security grabs the lead and skips along while the tactical horses wait a little too long to engage.

I really wanted Omaha to stay in and add value to other horses too.

I am feeling Game Winner, Improbable, Roadster/Tacitus. Mostly just a hunch based upon reading about 10 articles
