Coach: Rodolphe Brissett Jockey: Flavien Pratt Chances: 2-1

Curtain: This Colt has a high cruise speed that usually wins in this race.

Hoppert: His gate-wire draw at Peter Pan in Belmont was his third victory in four starts. Will anyone be able to catch it with a rain forecast?

Coach: Safi Joseph Jr.. Jockey: Manny Franco Chances: 20-1

Curtain: He is the slowest of the late runners in this field. Looking elsewhere.

Hoppert: Fifth-ranked Preakness has at least one thing: the best name in this field after its four dark-colored legs or socks.

Coach: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Jose Ortiz Chances: 8-1

Curtain: This is a hardworking fillet that will not allow us, the people, to go too far from it.

Hoppert: The Kentucky Oaks runner-up has won four of six races and is drawn to this marathon. Pletcher had previously won it in 2007, with Rags to Riches. Leave it to the exotic at your own risk.

Coach: Eric Reed Jockey: Sonny Leon Chances: 7-2
