Or, the race that Uncle Mo should have been running in. You know this.

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds
1. The Factor Martin Garcia Bob Baffert 7-2
Bad luck last time out, but has he returned to his best form?
2. Shackleford Jesus Castanon Dale Romans 7-2
Ran out of gas before, but this could be his perfect distance.
3. Tapizar Garrett Gomez Steven Asmussen 20-1
Looked good in a confidence-building allowance win.
4. Tres Borrachos Joel Rosario Martin F. Jones 30-1
Last won in July, but again, this could be the right distance.
5. Wilburn Julien Leparoux Steven M. Asmussen 4-1
Can’t seem to lose lately, even when encountering trouble.
6. Irrefutable Rafael Bejarano Bob Baffert 12-1
Seems to prefer a shorter race, but interesting to see him here.
7. Jersey Town Cornelio Velasquez Barclay Tagg 15-1
Cigar Mile winner finishes in the money frequently.
8. Caleb’s Posse Rajiv Maragh Donnie K. Von Hemel 5-1
Should relish this cut back in distance after the Indiana Derby experiment.
9. Trappe Shot John Velazquez Kiaran McLaughlin 3-1
Outside post may finally give him a chance for a clean break.

Predictions: Wilburn, Trappe Shot, The Factor, Tapizar
Longshot: Jersey Town
