Rebel’s Romance, 100 points.
Rebel’s Romance is coming off a win at the UAE Derby, giving home two wins in three starts.

Greatest Honour, 80 points.
The Fountain of Youth winner had already booked a spot in the Derby, but he saw his three-race winning streak end after a third place finish at the Florida Derby. Despite the loss, he will still be one of the favorites to win the Kentucky Derby.

On the Bubble

Spielberg, 17 points.
After a second-place finish at the Southwest Stakes in February, trainer Bob Baffert decided to enter him in the Florida Derby. However, it didn’t pan out after an eighth-place finish. With very few prep races left. It is unlikely that the winner of the Los Alamitos Futurity and runner-up in the Southwest Stakes will make it to the Kentucky Derby. Ready for May?
