Expert Picks?

Our first expert pick is from Brian Monzo of CBS New York who breaks down the race by each horse and predicts a win for the horse Revolutionary.

His top pick is Revolutionary followed by a "second pick" of Normandy Invasion and a "value play", the 17 horse, Will Take Charge.

SB Nation has a full review of the race horse, by horse here and Matt Gardner has this pick, "Itsmyluckyday and Orb, with Itsmyluckyday my top play." has four of their experts rank the horses from 1-10 here, that item is very condensed and a quick read if you are looking to make a pick quickly.

Rain and mud...

The forecast calls for an 80 percent chance of rain and a high of 59 degrees. The last Derby run on a sloppy track was in 2010.
