Always Dreaming will bid to win the second leg of the Triple Crown when the 2017 Preakness Stakes takes place at Baltimore’s Pimlico course on Saturday, May 20.

The winner of this year’s Kentucky Derby is the betting favorite at evens to win at Preakness. However, Classic Empire is sure to be a strong challenger after finishing fourth, despite being disrupted by a three-horse collision at Churchill Downs.

Lookin At Lee is also a contender, while Gunnevera may be the best of the dark-horse picks for the 142nd edition of the Preakness.

Here is the projected field for the second leg of the Triple Crown, along with the latest odds, per Oddschecker:
