Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia says he expects to make unbeaten Verrazano the Derby’s morning-line favorite on Wednesday, in spite of his lack of buzz when compared with Orb.
“It’s going to be close,” he said. “He’s been favored every time. I love Orb myself. But there’s nothing about making the line that says Verrazano won’t be favored.”
Battaglia said Verrazano might be 4-1, with Orb 9-2 and Goldencents around 6-1, then Revolutionary and Normandy Invasion around 10-1.
Oaks PP draw at 11am Tuesday, Churchill time.
