This is the pick from James Skully of Briznet.net:

Honor A. P. is my top pick. The son of Honor Code seemed to be longing for more distance when finishing powerfully in a brilliant Santa Anita Derby (G1) win at 1 1/8 miles two starts back, registering a 108 Speed rating for his second outing of 2020. He was poised to take a step back after receiving a Speed rating 14 points better than his seasonal debut, and the 1 1/16-mile distance and pace scenario worked against him in the final prep, the Aug. 1 Shared Belief S. at Del Mar.

The imposing dark bay still earned a respectable 103 Speed figure after rallying belatedly to miss by less than a length in second. Trained by 2005 Kentucky Derby winner John Shirreffs, Honor A. P. has cranked up his training in recent weeks, including in a pair of fast 5-furlong drills with strong gallop-outs, and most recently delivered a visually impressive 7-furlong drill. I thought the outside draw (post 16) benefited him since he’s such a large individual and risked getting shuffled back farther than preferred from an inside or middle post.

With Brisnet E1 Pace ratings of 90 or more in all four route starts, Honor A. P. possesses tactical speed. I expect him to hustle from the starting gate with Mike Smith, establishing position in perhaps fifth or sixth behind the early leaders, and he will look to make a move into contention on the far turn. Built to thrive at the 1 1/4-mile trip, Honor A. P. can finish fastest of all to win the Kentucky Derby.
