After two weeks of upheaval, here's how SI ranks the top contenders for May 7.
1. The Factor
Distance questions hover over the likely favorite (below) in Saturday's Arkansas Derby.
2. Dialed In
He overcame a speed-favoring track to win the Florida Derby but did so in a glacial 1:50.07.
3. Mucho Macho Man
The bay colt ran third in the Louisiana Derby, despite losing a shoe, and should improve.
4. Midnight Interlude
He will be trying to become the first Derby winner not to have raced at 2 since 1882.
