He will be the favorite over Preakness Stakes winner War of Will (slightly better than 3/1 odds).

The three-year-old colt posted back-to-back wins at the Tampa Bay Derby and Wood Memorial.

War of Will owner Mark Casse said "there's an extremely good shot" War of Will goes to the Belmont Stakes on June 8 in New York. If he wins, he'd be the first horse since Afleet Alex in 2005 to fall short in the Kentucky Derby before capturing the Preakness and Belmont and would be the front-runner for 3-year-old horse of the year.

"It's the third leg of the Triple Crown, who doesn't want to win it?" Casse said Sunday. "There are only three Triple Crown races, and they're pretty important. I think if you can do it you should do it. ...

"That's what we do. We run."
