Ocean War Betting
The lightly raced Ocean War has been a market mover in the lead up to the Epsom Derby. Owned by Godolphin and trained by Mahmood Al Zarooni, the three year old has only contested three races in his career but has seen some support for the big race in past few weeks.
Godolphin have not had a Derby winner since Lamtarra in 1995 and young trainer mahmood Al Zarooni will be looking to better his third place finish in the race last year with Rewilding.
Ocean War ran just once as a two year old, finishing fifth in a modest maiden at Sandown last July. As a three year old however he has followed that with two wins from two runs this season, both at Newmarket in April., included a listed race in the shape of the Mafki Newmarket Stakes on Guineas day. He is the shortest price runner of the Godolphin team's entries ahead of the 2011 Derby.
|5-11||Ocean War||122||Mahmood Al Zarooni||F Dettori||16/1|
VERDICT: Two time Newmarket winner this season, shortest priced Godolphin entry with each-way claims.
