Masked Marvel Betting
Masked Marvel will be trainer John Gosden's only entry in the 2011 Epsom Derby. The three year old won the Derby trial at Goodwood in May and is likely to be ridden by William Buick.
The son of Montjeu finished a well beaten fifth in the Sandown Derby Trial back in April, finishing eight lengths behind winner Genius Beast who reopposes in the Derby. He came back however strongly winning the IBA Cocked Hat Stakes at Goodwood in May, a race won last year by Derby third Rewilding.
He had one win as a juvenile last season and finished sixth of eight in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Ascot in October. It looks as though he'll enjoy the good ground and the step up in trip and could be a lively outsider.
|16-51||Masked Marvel||121||John Gosden||W Buick||25/1|
VERDICT: Winner of the Goodwood trial, cut to 25's from 66's for Derby and could be lively outsider on ground which will suit.
