With the Queen set to attend the Derby tomorrow, Ladbrokes has opened betting on the colour of her hat. The firm has already reported a flurry of bets on a blue hat, which has been chalked up as the 2/1 favourite.

Ahead of the Derby tomorrow, Ladbrokes has witnessed a flurry of bets on the colour of the Queen’s hat.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Her Majesty loves wearing blue to Derby Day so it’s no wonder punters are already having a flutter on that shade.

Derby to Spark £20 Million Gamble on Saturday

Ladbrokes anticipate that the Investec Derby will spark a twenty million pound gamble across the industry tomorrow. The firm say that the Derby is the biggest betting flat race of the season, while this year’s race looks to be one of the most open-renewals.

Cliffs Of Moher and Cracksman remain joint-favourites at 4-1, with Eminent next best at 13/2. The firm reported money for outsider Salouen today, cutting his odds to 40/1 from 66/1.

Meanwhile, Aidan O’Brien has been chalked up at 11-2 to train the first two in the Derby, while it’s 16/1 he has the first three.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes told Bettingpro: 

“Not only is the Derby the biggest betting flat race of the season, but this year’s renewal looks like one of the most open. 

"There has been no consistent gamble on one horse at this stage as we continue to lay a spread of runners. However, come the race tomorrow we suspect Cliffs Of Moher will go off favourite.”

Ladbrokes afraid of 500/1 shot Diore Lia in the Derby

Diore Lia is Ladbrokes’ biggest liability by a long-shot heading into the Derby, with the firm estimating that the 500/1 outsider will cost the industry tens of millions of pounds should she win.

Despite shop punters racing to back the lowly-rated filly, Ladbrokes go long-odds on at 1/4 that she finishes last, while she is 150/1 to be placed. 

The firm has also opened betting on her SP, going 7/4 that it is 150/1 or bigger, 80/1 to 125/1 inclusive is 10/11, while 66/1 or shorter is 3/1.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes told Bettingpro: 

“Diore Lia winning the Derby is our worst nightmare. With so many shops punters being drawn to her huge odds, we are facing our biggest pay-out in Derby history.

“However, at long odds-on to finish last, we think there is more chance of Shergar showing up and winning the race!”

What will be the industry SP of Diore Lia in the Derby?
7/4 150/1 or bigger
10/11 80/1 to 125/1 inclusive
3/1 66/1 or shorter
