After the efficiency Tiz the Legislation publish within the Belmont Stakes, it’s difficult to appear previous him within the Run for the Roses. Sure, he’s within the so-called “cursed” put up place for the Kentucky Derby, however earlier than final 12 months’s wild consequence, the favourite received the Kentucky Derby the former six years in a row.

With the ones stats in thoughts, I will be able to move with Tiz the Legislation on the profitable spot of my exacta, which will likely be finished by way of Max Participant. Max Participant additionally participated within the Belmont Stakes with Tiz the Legislation and he confirmed, which was once higher than maximum predicted him to do. Popping out of the No. 2 put up, Max Participant has the risk to leap out of the gate and take the rail to place himself in a excellent place.

$30 exacta field 17 and a pair of Tiz the Legislation and Max Participant have to return within the most sensible two spots in any order.

One long-shot horse to imagine is Sole Volante in put up 12. At +3300 to win he’s indubitably one thing to imagine hanging to your guess slip. For me, I see Sole Volante coming within the most sensible 3, extra of a more secure guess to select him to turn reasonably than win all of it. Sole Volante didn’t have a perfect Belmont Stakes coming in 6th, however previous to that he got here within the most sensible two in his final 3 dust stakes races.

If you’re taking a look to keep away from simply driving the favourite to win, then let’s check out extra of an extended shot exacta field. To start with look on put up positions, I’ve Honor A.P. and The big apple Site visitors on the most sensible of my record. Those horses are within the 16 and 15 posts, respectively, and have the ability to chop out Tiz the Legislation in 17 from attending to the interior. To finish the exacta field we can throw in Tiz the Legislation as a result of it’s onerous to imagine he received’t are available in a minimum of the highest 2, and we can even have Cash Strikes. In a good put up at 7, Cash Strikes is on this exacta field for 2 causes, his teacher Todd Pletcher and the truth that he hasn’t pop out of the highest 3 in any race he has been in.

$40 exacta field – 16/15, 17, 7 Honor A.P. should win the race and The big apple Site visitors, Tiz the Legislation or Cash Strikes should are available in 2d.

After nearly 20 years of gazing the favourite disappoint on the Kentucky Derby, making a bet the chalk has been winning during the last six or seven years. Tiz the Legislation got here via for us on the Belmont and I do not see somebody beating him on Saturday within the Run for the Roses. In spite of popping out of the haunted No. 17 put up (0-for-41 in Derby historical past), we’ll put Tiz the Legislation on the most sensible of our exacta key field and root for any other favourite to gallop to the winner’s circle.

We predict the No. 16 horse, Honor AP, would be the largest risk to Tiz the Legislation, so with two of the favorites up most sensible, we’ll fill our field with 3 lengthy pictures:

No. Five Main Fed: Reviews from Churchill Downs say he has taken a liking to the observe this week and his morning exercises had been brisk. Main Fed, who shouldn’t have certified for the Derby if it ran in Might, has confirmed to be a real nearer, so if the rate horses burn out, he may come charging down the stretch and are available within the cash.

No. 7 Cash Strikes: Grabs my fast consideration with Todd Pletcher as the instructor, but in addition as a result of he has come within the cash in all of his 4 occupation begins with a win, two seconds and a display. That bodes smartly since maximum all Derby winners have had a minimum of a most sensible Three end in its earlier race.

No. 12 Sole Volante: As Dan discussed above, he ran a disappointing 6th within the Belmont, however teacher Patrick Biancone is on file as pronouncing it was once a mistake to run him in that race on simply 10 days relaxation, so we will give him a move. He hasn’t been in a race since, so put on and tear may not be a subject matter on Saturday, and he has been bred for this distance.

$25 exacta key field: 17 / 5, 7, 12, 16 = $200 overall wagered (The 17 has to win, then any of the opposite 4 horses must run 2d to hit the exacta)
