Kentucky Derby Best Bet - Game Winner @ 8.00
The three-year-old hails from the powerful Bob Baffert stable and punters would be silly to not follow his runners. He's a champion trainer and Game Winner has looked good in six race day starts to date.
He scored wins at his first four starts before running second in the Rebel Stakes behind Omaha Beach and then second again behind Roadster in the Santa Anita Derby. Although he was beaten, he's still on the same line of betting as the two aforementioned runners.
That bodes well for this and we're expecting money to come for the son of Kentucky.
Kentucky Derby Best Each Way - Roadster @ 8.00
Roadster finished third behind Game Winner in the De Mar Futurity in 2018 but quickly improved to win the Group 1 Santa Anita Derby. It's a great form race and it should give him plenty of confidence going forward.
He's another Baffert-trained runner, so punters should look at the 2019 Kentucky Derby markers very closely. Stable money will come for either Roadster or Game Winner and it could be telling.
Kentucky Derby Best Roughie - Tacitus @ 13.00
William Mott lines up the three-year-old son of Kentucky, which has won his last three starts. He comes into this having scored the Group 2 Wood Memorial and although that's not the same form as the Santa Anita Derby, it was a good win.
13.00 is worth taking and the three-race winner has enough experience and pace to win the Derby.
Best Roughie: Tacitus - 13.00 @ bet365
