Analysis: I’m moving him down to the second spot this week, but I’m definitely still on his bandwagon. I debated putting him at number one for several hours; I don’t believe it’s much at all that separates the top two horses. How each horse works out in these next three weeks will be a major factor in determining who I actually pick to win, and of course, the post position draw will be ultra important.
