Horse Racing Betting News: Dark Horses Emerge behind Saxon Warrior in Espom Derby Betting Odds

Espom Derby Betting Odds & Big Race Preview

When Saxon Warrior blasted home in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket last month, talk of a Triple Crown attempt from this clearly brilliant 3-year old colt was rife and connections at Ballydoyle and Coolmore have done little to sway the possibility of it happening.  Saxon Warrior is now a top priced Even money (2.00) with Sporting Bet in the Epsom Derby betting odds comparison lists at the time of writing, and as low as 8/11 (1.73) with Boylesports.

The next leg of the Triple Crown comes at Epsom Downs, and in particular the Investec Derby on Saturday 2nd June.

Saxon Warrior is no bigger than Evens (2.00) to win and with first choice jockey Ryan Moore sure to ride, he looks fairly good Epsom Derby bet. He’s not the only top three-year-old emerging however and does have stamina to prove.

One horse with no stamina concerns whatsoever is the William Haggas trained Young Rascal, who won the Chester Vase in really good style under James Doyle last week. A strong travelling horse with a good turn of foot, he is a bright prospect indeed and has been supported from 16/1 into 12/1 since the immediate post-race Epsom Derby betting odds quotes.

On Saturday, May 12th, Knight To Behold another dark horse in the 2018 Epsom Derby odds made his way into the picture with a really eye-catching performance beating race favourite Kew Gardens in the Lingfield Derby Trial for trainer Harry Dunlop. A free-going son of Sea The Stars, his style of running will really be suited to the Epsom racecourse and if he gets a good Derby draw he will make them go a bit.

This year’s Epsom Derby is turning into a very interesting betting contest. Current favourite Saxon Warrior is no doubt the horse they’ve all to beat, but he also has stamina and ability to handle Epsom to prove. There is plenty of each-way Derby betting value in the market and we’re yet to see the Dante at York, which is another flat meeting which can’t come soon enough!

As for the Triple Crown, imagine the horse racing hype for the St Leger at Doncaster later in the season if Saxon Warrior does bolt up in the Derby?  Hurrah for the Flat!
