Battle Of Marengo Betting
Battle Of Marengo is one of the leading entries of Aiden O'Brien in this year'sEpsom Derby on Saturday 1st June. The colt is by Galileo and is unbeaten in both of his starts this season. The Ballydoyle based trainer is looking for his fourth Derby success after previously winning the race with Galileo (2001), High Chaparral (2002) and last year with Camelot.
Battle Of Marengo lost his first race as a two year old but since then has gone five unbeaten. After winning his Maiden at Gowran Park last August he won a Listed contest over a mile on good ground at Leopardstown before landing his first Group success at Leopardstown on heavy. As a three year old he was impressive winning a Group 3 over a mile and a quarter at Leopardstown and then followed that up with another good display winning the Group 2 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial in May.
