Belmont Top Four Spoiler Chances

I know how hard the Triple Crown is to accomplish, and with everyone seeming to write Chrome off as the next Secretariat I decided to give my opinion on who could play spoiler this Saturday. These are my opinions on the best chances to score in the Belmont, and end the dream of Chrome. I want a Triple Crown winner as much as the next guy, but I have to be reasonable with his not so stamina rich pedigree, and his obvious shortening of stride in the Derby I don't he will take the Belmont. No matter how much I want him to win I can't ignore the obvious he may be a really good horse in a weak crop. Really good horses in weak crops don't win the Belmont take a look at Big Brown who was very much in the same boat in 2008 and he didn't even run a step on Belmont day. I'm not getting my hopes up this time and these four spoiler chances are the the ones I'll be betting on this Saturday.
