Fascinating Rock Betting
Dermot Weld enters Fascinating Rock in the 2014 Epsom Derby, a horse he thinks has an excellent chance on Saturday 7th June. By Fastnet Rock, the colt has won three times this season including two Derby trials in Ireland.
A winner of his Maiden at Leopardstown in March, he was impressive when winning the Ballysax Stakes over a mile and a quarter at Navan by two and a half lengths, with subsequent Dee Stakes winner Kingfisher well beat in behind. A Stewards Enquiry gave the colt a deserved win in the Derrinstown House Stud Derby Trial last time beating the likes of Ebanoran and Geoffrey Chaucer.
Trainer Weld is bullish about his chances in the Derby and he looks a big price based on his wins in Ireland this season.

VERDICT: A winner of two solid Derby trials in Ireland, at 14/1 he looks to have very solid each-way claims.
