I wouldnt bet too much on favorites in the Derby. There are way too many horses that can squeeze each other out. Giacomo had really bad odds as well and he won the Derby a few years ago.
I bet on Dunkirk on Thursday, at the time I Want Revenge was still the favourite and Dunkirk was at 9-1 odds. Still come yesterday, he wasn't the favourite, after the scratch the odds went to Freisan Fire. I like Pletcher horses and Prado is a fairly successful jockey, however I was concerned with Dunkirk's lack of experience, however I knew that this was a horse of a fine pedigree, so my research was there. Also, the horse's name reminded me of a town back home, but I swear, that had nothing to do with my decision!
I doubt he'll be back at Pimlico, but hey, I may bet Dunkirk again
