Epsom Derby Favourites

Favourite backers by and large have not faired too badly over the last 20 years, during which time, seven favourites or joint favourites have won. Those winners were:

  • 2015 - Golden Horn 13/8
  • 2014 - Australia 11/8
  • 2012 - Camelot 8/13
  • 2007 - Authorized 5/4
  • 2005 - Motivator 3/1
  • 2004 - North Light 7/2 JF
  • 2001 - Galileo 11/4 JF
  • 1994 - Erhaab 9/2

Punters should remember however even if the favourite fails to win, the winner more often than not comes from those amongst the favourites. It is very rare for an outsider for instance to win the race, although High Rise at 20/1 did achieve an Epsom Derby victory in 1998 and those with longer memories will remember Snow Knight, the 50/1 winner, 35 years ago in 1974.
