Galileo Rock Betting
Galileo Rock is the entry of Irish trainer David Wachman in this year's Epsom Derby on Saturday 1st June. The colt is by Galileo and has one win from his three career starts. That win came as a juvenile and he has been beaten twice since and is rated 108 for the Derby.
The colt's career got off to a good start winning his Maiden by seven lengths at Leopardstown last August over a mile on soft going. He stepped up in class to finish fifth in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes behind Trading Leather at Newmarket last October and was last seen finishing third in the Bet365 Classic Trial at Sandown in April. He kept on steadily in that race and beat Libertarian (who returned with a cough that day) and as a half brother to the stayer Saddler's Wells he should stay the mile and a half no problem. Whether he's good enough in this company however is up for debate.

|15-3||Galileo Rock||108||11||David Wachman||Wayne Lordan||50/1|
VERDICT: Should stay the trip but big question mark as to whether he's good enough and big price suggests he'll do well to place.
