The 135th Kentucky Derby features a full field of 20 in which I Want Revenge will go favored. He has an ideal post breaking from post 13 and should be able to tuck into a nice stalking position and its his race to lose. Pioneerof The Nile trained by 3 time Kentucky Derby winner Bob Baffert and ridden by Garrett Gomez figures to take alot of action but must prove he can run over the natural dirt as he switches over from the synthetic surface. Todd Pletcher sends out the lightly raced Dunkirk who looks to have the talent but has never raced as a 2-year-old but he just might be good enough to pull this off. Perhaps a bit overlooked is the Godolphin trained pair of Regal Ransom and Desert Party who came out of the UAE Derby in which they finished first and second who could have a say in the outcome. Louisiana Derby winner Friesan Fire may benefit if the track comes up sloppy. Papa Clem and Summer Bird who are coming out of the Arkansas Derby (G2) may suprise a few people and outrun expectations.
