The ante-post favourite for the Epsom Derby is Dawn Approach, who is a best price 5/4, after the Jim Bolger-trained colt romped to a five-length victory in the 2,000 Guineas. The son of 2008 Derby winner New Approach justified short price favouritism at Newmarket as he extended his unbeaten run to seven races.
Last year's Derby winning trainer Aiden O'Brien is well represented near the top of the betting for the 2013 renewal, with Mars and Battle Of Marengo. The latter was a one and three quarter length winner of the Group 3 Derrinstown Stud Trial at Leopardstown to win his second trial of the season. The odds on shot by Galileo was clipped into around 5/1 second favourite for this year's Derby as a result.
Another market mover trained by Aiden O'Brien is Ruler Of The World who was the impressive winner of the Chester Vase, clipped in to around 10/1 from 25's. The Ballydoyle trainer then scored with Magician who was backed into around 16/1 from 50's following his win in the Dee Stakes at Chester.
The Sir Michael Stoute trained Telescope was well fancied but he misses the Dante Stakes on Thursday due to a slight injury problem and he has drifted in the Derby betting as a result. The likes of Windhoek, Indian Chief and Greatwood all run on the Dante, which should see some movement in the Derby betting as a result.
The Andre Fabre trained Ocovango won his third straight race when landing a Group 2 contest in France at the beginning of May, whilst the German trained Chopin is another market mover.
33/1 outsider Libertarian won the 2013 Dante Staes on Thursday. Plenty of fancied horses ran in this Derby trial but it was the colt by New Approach who stayed on to take the race to win well and is now around 16/1 for the Derby.
