    Nah! Given that the Doha winner 'should' be the early fave, here's a take on others who could be considered as legit faves.

    + = co-fave

    400 + Norman
    800 + Amos
    110H + Roberts
    400H + B & S
    PV + Duplantis
    LJ + Echevarria
    SP + Crouser & Walsh
    JT + Kirt & Vetter & Rohler
    Dec + Mayer & Warner

    400 + SMU
    800 + Wilson & Rogers
    1500 Kipyegon
    5000 Hassan
    100H + Wiliams & Harrison
    400H + McLaughlin
    HT + Wlod ?
    JT + Liu & Lyu
    Hept + Thiam

    If Hassan chooses the 15/5 double, I'd consider Gidey as the favorite for 10.

    Might be hard for Kirt to bounce back from that injury in 10 months.

    Quick notes:

    110h seems light
    PV add Lisek
    W200 ???
    W800 looks like a multi-headed coin flip
    WPV - Morris, Stefanidi

    Oh yeah, I forget that Lyles and SMU are thinking doubles. They both go as co-faves in their second event.
    And whatever events that Hassan goes in, she's the fave.

    What effect will the returns of

    Van Niekirk and James to full health have on the 400?
    J Inge focussing on one event
    Morgunov
    Ayana

    have on the meet?

    A healthy Anita will still be THE outstanding favorite. BTW, she recently suggested she might not be retiring after next season as she was saying earlier.
