2011 Kentucky Derby Field Odds Update: Post Position Makes Dialed In Narrow Favorite

The 2011 Kentucky Derby's odds got an overhaul Wednesday evening thanks to an overhaul that split highly considered contenders Archarcharch and Uncle Mo to the sidelines and gave Dialed In a very favorable inside lane. After the unveiling of the newly revised odds Dialed In remains the favorite, but not by as much as you might think. Though that's a 4/1 top spot, Uncle Mo remains right behind at 9/2 -- just about a tie. Archarcharch, however, 

Rounding out the top five are Nehro, Archarcharch and Midnight Interlude. Nehro's odds ticked up from 8/1, while Midnight Interlude leapt all the way up from 15/1. Master of Hounds may be the biggest loser, falling from 16/1 to the pack at the bottom, joined by Decisive Moment, formerly the 60/1 longshot. And way, way, way down there remains poor Watch Me Go, the only contender in the field to slip below 30/1 odds.
