Epsom Derby 2017
Couldn't find a thread on here so thought I would just get started.
Been looking forward to the return of the Andre Fabre trained Akihiro who runs today in the Prix Noaille at Chantilly. Only 2 runs last season, defeating subsequent Prix Jean Luc Lagardere winner National Defense. From Japanese super horse Deep Impact whose progeny have been threatening to win a big European prize for a while now. Also out of a mate who has an Arc winner down the line.
Looking forward to a good comeback today and hopefully a trip to Epsom for breakfast with the stars and then onto the big race itself. Currently available at 25/1, I have taken some slightly bigger prices through the winter. It is not guaranteed to run at Epsom but we know Fabre likes to target the English Classics with some of his better ones. At 25/1 worth a few quid as if it does what is expected today it will be half that price.
Also worth a dabble at 33/1 for the Arc 😉
Not up on flat but always good to hear views of the more educated that myself, at 25/1 it's worth an interest.
Looking at the huge Derby field, its hard to see any better qualified than RIVET. The only horse likely to stay the distance, and surely has an interested owner....L Piggot!
Btn hd by stablemate, with another stablemate 4th. Still 25/1 but only 1 bookie quoting odds
