2019 Kentucky Derby Betting Update PT 2

He’s also trading around a 7/1 margin but you’ll find that a few books go higher than that so it gives the slim edge to his stablemate Improbable.


Hidden Scroll is one of the most interesting contenders to emerge over the last couple of weeks after putting in a monster performance when everybody was first able to lay eyes on him. He’s now priced around a 12/1 or 14/1 margin with a number of top bookmakers and looks like he could definitely be in the mix at the finish line in a few weeks.

Another major contender to keep your eye on is the Fountain of Youth winner Code of Honor who can be backed at a solid price of around 16/1 with a number of top bookmakers. He’s owned by some classic connections and has a great trainer with a lot of room still to move forward.

Based on his breeding, he won’t struggle with the mile and a quarter distance in the Kentucky Derby and his ability to maintain tactical speed could wind up making a big difference in the last furlong or two.

Omaha Beach is another interesting contender and he can be backed around a 20/1 price tag which makes him an interesting each-way selection. He will likely be a popular name play on the day and a fast running son of War Front is always a threat on the dirt.

Other major contenders include Roadster at 25/1 alongside Instagrand at an identical price. Long shot considerations go towards 33/1 By My Standards who just won the Louisiana Derby.
