Sure, it might make sense to handicap the Kentucky Derby field with hard-hitting analysis of form, but there is something to be said about letting it all ride on names.
Soon, there will be a grand debate of post positions, trainers and the length of Churchill Downs and how it might benefit some thoroughbreds.
Here is the antithesis to that form of analysis, which is more in keeping with the manner that I use to make my picks at the race track.
I take a look at the names and sort them out accordingly.
Of course, this form of handicapping is purely subjective, so feel free to blast my rankings or offer your favorite names from this year's magnificent field in the comments section below.
