Trainer Aidan O’Brien is seeking his own slice of history in this year’s race as another victory would draw him level with Robert Robson, John Porter and Fred Darling on seven wins.
So let’s take a look at the contenders for this year’s big race.
Anthony Van Dyck 6/1
Battle hardened and is one of the more experienced in the race after running good races at the highest level as a juvenile. As a result, he has the highest official rating of any runner in the race and he made a pleasing return when landing Lingfield’s Derby Trial at the beginning of May. The first of Aidan O’Brien’s runners in the race, it could be unwise to underestimate his chances.
The Andrew Balding-trained runner has won both his starts this season and beat Telecaster, who is now a shorter price for Derby success than Bangkok, at Doncaster in March.
Another of Aidan O’Brien’s contenders, Broome landed the Ballysax and the Derrinstown Stakes, two of Ireland’s key Derby trials, on his last two starts and has shaped as if he will improve for the step up in trip to a mile and a half and the usually reticent O’Brien was swift to point out his suitability for Epsom after his latest victory.
Cape Of Good Hope 40/1
Already sick and tired of reading the name O’Brien, then look away now as the chances of Cape Of Good Hope is assessed. One of O’brien’s outsiders for this race, he has at least proved his liking for this unconventional track by taking the Blue Riband Trial at this course in April . Worth his place in the field but the form of his recent win looks weak and he will need to improve to feature in the finish.
