Australia Fav To Complete Derby Double
Boylesports have installed Epsom Derby winner, Australia, as the 1/3 favourite for Saturday’s Irish Derby at the Curragh.
His nearest rival in the betting is Roger Varian’s Kingston Hill at 3/1 who will be bidding to reverse the Epsom form with Aidan O’Brien’s three-year-old.
True Story is next in the betting at 7/1 with Australia’s stable mate, Geoffrey Chaucer, priced at 14/1 alongside Dermot Weld’s Fascinating Rock, who will be hoping to improve on his eighth place finish at Epsom.
Australia is currently priced at 1/3 and if the fast ground conditions remain at the Curragh, his price is likely to shorten. If there is rain forecast, we would expect to see Australia drift and Kingston Hill’s price harden up.
Godolphin’s True Story finished seventh in the Epsom Derby and is proving an each-way alternative to punters at 7/1 having been initially available at 8/1.
