The post position draw did little change the odds, but the defection of Nehro the day before the draw wreaked havoc.

Nehro was expected to go off as second- or third-choice in the field, close behind likely favorite Animal Kingdom. This will make Animal Kingdom an even heavier favorite (although likely not as heavy as the morning line suggests).

Here is my updated line with a discussion of Isn't He Perfect, since I didn't talk about him in Monday's odds article.
