Memphis Tennessee Betting
Memphis Tennessee is the fourth of this year's Epsom Derby entries for Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O'Brien. Rated 123 by the Racing Post, the three year old has only had three runs in his career and looks set to be a pacemaker for some of the stables better chances at Epsom.
Memphis Tennessee had a moderate start to his career as a two year old, finishing fifth in a maiden contest at Cork last August. The son of Hurricane Run did score on his second start however, winning in a division one maiden contest on the all weather at Dundalk last November.
Second behind stablemate Recital at big odds in the Derrinstown Derby Trial on his only racecourse appearance this season, it must have been enough for the trainer to think he can do a good job as pacemaker in the Derby. O'Brien's son Joseph is set to take the ride.
|51-2||Memphis Tennessee||123||A O'Brien||J O'Brien||40/1|
VERDICT: Decent second in Leopardstown trial but set up as pacemaker here.
