Our Channel Betting
William Haggas trains the outsider Our Channel in the Epsom Derby on Saturday 7th June 2014. By English Channel and owned by Abdulla Al Mansoori, the three year old colt qualified for the race by winning the Derby Trial here at Epsom back in April.
A winner of his Maiden at the third attempt in a Class 5 contest over seven furlongs at Beverley last September, he followed that up by winning the Investec Derby Trial here at Epsom in April. That race was over a mile and a quarter and the horse only just stayed the trip that day. Despite being the only horse with course form in the Derby field, he qualifies courtesy of that win and the odds suggest he wouldn't have been anywhere near this field otherwise.
