Chopin is the entry of German trainer Andreas Wohler who supplemented the colt for this year's Epsom Derby on Saturday 1st June. The colt is by Santiago and is unbeaten in his last two races in Germany. The three year old is lightly raced having run just twice as a juvenile and once as a three year old earlier this year.
Chopin lost on his racecourse debut last October finishing second on good to soft over a mile at Baden Baden. He did score however on his next run at Frankfurt over a mile by nine lengths on soft ground. His one run this season also yielded a win, this time over a mile and half a furlong on good ground at Krefeld winning impressively by eight lengths on good ground. Jamie Spencer has been recruited to take the ride as he bids for his first Derby win.

VERDICT: German entry obviously well regarded to have been supplemented for the race but little to go on in the way of form.
