Surely, everyone knows the Wood Memorial's major players at this point. Verrazano is a deserving favorite, even if the 4-5 early line is a little rich. Vyjack (4-1), while not as fast on Energy Figures, is also undefeated.

But we'll look for the upset with Normandy Invasion (5-1), who alreadty shown his liking for the Big A surface, is proven at the route, via a nose defeat in last year's Remsen, is working brilliantly and picking up Javier Castellano for the first time.

Taking Normandy Invasion to win at 4-1 or greater and an exacta key box with his undefeated rivals here.
