Go Mo! Mohaymen New Kentucky Derby Fav

Following an easy victory in the Lambholm South Holy Bull Stakes, Mohaymen is now the 7-1 outright favourite with William Hill for the Kentucky Derby. His price was cut from 20-1.

It was a good victory for Kiaran McLaughlin’s Mohaymen, who could be a contender for the US Triple Crown. William Hill offer 12-1 for any horse to win the US Triple Crown in 2016, following American Pharoah’s heroics last year.

“Is Mohaymen the next American Pharoah? It’s far too early to tell, but he’s done enough to jump to the top of the Kentucky Derby betting,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

It looks more likely that there could be another US Triple Crown winner than an English one – it’s 50-1 with William Hill for any horse to land this year’s 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and St Leger.
