Along with the Grand National and the name of a new Royal Baby the Derby is one of the great British flutters that garners attention from hoards of people who’d not normally wager on anything at all. Indeed, the very rapidly shortening 2019 Epsom Derby odds on Broome underline just how dramatically things can change when the great unwashed mass of the British public get involved (just have a look at Brexit) and place their annual speculative bet on sports in the UK.

Epsom Derby One Of The Great British Flutters

Whether those 2019 Epsom Derby odds on Broome really do mean it can sweep 5/2 favorite Sir Dragonet outof the way it questionable, however what isn’t are the chances of Hiroshima which, at 250/1, make it the rank outsider this Saturday. Humanitarian and Sovereign get 100/1 which is shorter but probably cold comfort, and Line of Duty lines up alongside Norway at 50/1 with frankly very little more chance. Even Cape Of Good Hope on 40/1 is a chancers wager at best.

 Anthony Van Dyck, named after the Flemish baroque artist if you must know, gets a very fair 13/2 at Bet365 although that has slipped a bit in the last couple of days whilst Telecaster has moved up to just 5/1 and sits comfortably behind those 9/2 2019 Epsom Derby odds on Broome.Telecaster, it should be pointed out, hasn’t failed to place yet, and won two of its three outings over a mile two-and-a-half furlongs, so it could so well here and be worth an on-the-nose punt.

2019 Epsom Derby Odds at bet365

  • Hiroshima – 250/1
  • Humanitarian – 100/1
  • Sovereign – 100/1
  • Line Of Duty – 50/1
  • Norway – 50/1
  • Cape Of Good Hope – 40/1
  • Surfman – 20/1
  • Circus Maximus – 20/1
  • Madhmoon – 12/1
  • Japan – 10/1
  • Bangkok – 8/1
  • Anthony Van Dyck – 13/2
  • Telecaster – 5/1
  • Broome – 9/2
  • Sir Dragonet – 5/2

Naturally, a wager on Telecaster would mean eschewing those 2019 Epsom Derby odds on Broome. This is a tad risky since Broome has won twice this year already, but perhaps not as cavalier as dismissing the price Bet365, one of the best online betting sites in the UK, is currently offering on Sir Dragonet. Yet to be beaten over any distance, it is the firm favorite at 5/2 and that’s getting tighter with each passing hour as the Epsom Derby looms this Saturday.
