With Nicanor scratching from this race, if I were going to bet, my win bet would be Battle of Hastings based on his recent performance in the Colonial. I would also bet Hold Me Back to hit the board. He's done well in most of his races except for the Kentucky Derby which I think you can through out because a lot of good horses either ran poorly or had bad trips in the Kentucky Derby.
I thought he was a bet against, but regardless, it stinks to see him drop-out.
