Justify 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds
Justify comes into the Kentucky Derby as the betting favorite at +325 but if he wants to win he is going to have to break Appolo’s curse.
Appolo was the last Kentucky Derby winner to win after not racing as a two year old. Justify also didn’t race as a two year old but comes into this race undefeated. Justify won by three lengths at the Santa Anita Derby and has seen his price drop ever since.

Mendelssohn 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds
Mendelssohn has made the trip over to the States after winning the UAE Derby by a whopping 18.5 lengths and comes into this race with the second best odds sitting at +450.
Winners of the UAE Cup have struggled historically at the Kentucky Derby and unless his price drops a bit I would stay away from.
Mendelssohn is facing the toughest competition and I don’t think he is going to live up to the competition in this one.
Audible 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds
Last year’s Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher is the training for Audible and he has to really feel good about the chances he has.
He was the favorite in his last race the Florida Derby and he didn’t disapoint. He won by three lengths and he comes into this race well rested.
I really think he has a good chance to come out of this race as the winner, and at these odds he is worth some money.
Magnum Moon 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds
Magnum Moon won the Arkansas Derby and at this price he is a guy that’s hard to take your eyes off of. He won his last race at the Oakland which is the same race that American Pharoh won on the way to the Triple Crown.
If he can get off to a fast start and not get stuck in some trafic at +700 he is a guy that is worth a real long look at.
My Boy Jack 2018 Kentucky Derby Odds
My Boy Jack comes into this race at plus +3300, and he is really the last longshot that I see having any chance at winning this or even finishing near the front.
The only issue with My Boy Jack is he didn’t have enough points to qualify so he had to race on April 14th to get a qualyfing spot.
Although he doesn’t have the six weeks rest you would like heading into this one, if you are looking for a longshot this is your guy.
