2018 Kentucky Derby Betting Update PT 2

Justify has only been out a handful of times and has absolutely blown away his competition both times - effectively putting away Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Winner and former Derby favourite Bolt D’Oro - and coming home with relative ease under Mike Smith.

Magnum Moon took the Arkansas option and absolutely smashed the competition to win the Arkansas Derby despite veering out once again in the stretch. If he can settle down a bit and remain a bit cooler in the madness of the 20 horse field that we’ll see on Derby day, he genuinely has a chance here and the punters will find him at an impressive price as well that brings him right into solid each-way territory - particularly if you can find a bookmaker who is paying out on the top four finishers this time.

Taking a look at the market itself, you’ll find Justify priced just slightly ahead of his counterpart from England, Mendelssohn who will line up for Coolmore and looks like a real contender to break the UAE Derby’s streak of failing to produce a Kentucky Derby winner.

Obviously it’s an amusing coincidence that the horse who could pull that off represents an outfit that the Godolphin team have long considered to be their main rivals.

The next up is Florida Derby winner Audible who comes into the race having won a contest that has produced winners over the past few years and he is both an effective runner but also a very intelligent horse and the Derby always favours a combination of intelligence and bravery.
