Main Sequence Betting
The unbeaten Main Sequence is amongst the leading fancies for this year's Epsom Derby and is the main hope of trainer David Lanigan. Main Sequence caught the eye when a 50/1 winner on debut as a 2-year-old at Yarmouth last September before winning again a month later at Newmarket.
Trainer David Lanigan has never trained a Derby winner but he will be hopeful of breaking that duck this year, with Main Sequence currently on a four-race winning run.
Main Sequence reappeared at Newmarket as a 3-year-old in April and didn't disappoint as he defeated Azeemah by half a length. The son of Aldebaran picked up an even more significant win a month later as he landed the Group 3 Lingfield Derby Trial Stakes, over the Epsom Derby trip, beating the well fancied 5/4 favourite Shantaram in the process.
|11-11||Main Sequence||112||David Lanigan||Ted Durcan||10/1|
VERDICT: Bidding to become the first Lingfield Derby Trial winner to go on to land the Derby since 1998 and the fact he has seen out the trip already bodes well.
