Connections of California Chrome will be dreaming of success in the Kentucky Derby 2014

Unbeaten in three starts this year California Chrome heads to Churchill Downs as the favourite to claim the feature race. A five and quarter length of the Grade One Santa Anita Derby everything seems to be in the favour of the Art Sherman trained colt. The style of his victories have been impressive and this appears to be a weak renewal of the Kentucky Derby.

The strongest threats to the favourite will come from the Arkansas Derby victor Danza and Wicked Strong, who hold the best form of his rivals.
