Harzand Backed To Complete Derby Double
Epsom Derby winner Harzand has strengthened further as the favourite to land the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby on Saturday and is now 10/11 from 5/4.
Dermot Weld’s son of Sea The Stars and Hazariya is followed in the market by Aidan O’Brien’s Idaho, who finished third to Harzand in the Epsom Derby.
