Roderic O'Connor Betting
Roderic O'Connor is likely to head for the Epsom Derby following his three quarters of a length win in the Irish 2000 Guineas at the Curragh. The Aidan O'Brien trained colt is out of former Derby winner Galileo and is rated 120 by the Racing Post.
A promising two year old, Roderic O'Connor finished second behind Frankel in last season's Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket before then going on to win a Group One at Saint Cloud last Autumn. A disappointing eleventh on his seasonal reappearance in the 2000 Guineas in April had seen the colt's Derby price pushed well out before his win in the Irish equivalent at the Curragh in May.
|121-01||Roderic O'Connor||120||Aidan O'Brien||TBA||16/1|
VERDICT: Winner of the Irish 2000 Guineas and one of a number of Aidan O'Brien trained horses in with a shout.
