More outsiders backed as Investec Derby remains wide open

| 02.06.2016

The recent Goodwood winner Algometer, 16-1 (from 20-1), and the Aidan O’Brien-trained Idaho, 12-1 (from 16-1), have been the best backed Investec Derby contenders with Coral today.  Wings Of Desire is the 9-2 (from 4-1) favourite for the race, ahead of US Army Ranger at 5-1 (from 9-2).

“With the Classic trials failing to deliver a clear-cut Derby favourite, punters have been willing to back a selection of bigger priced contenders in recent days, with those runners wanting ease in the ground attracting the most support.  By contrast the market leaders have been largely ignored, and the first four in the betting are all on the drift,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Racing Post. Now in the role of Head of PR, he is involved in all aspects
of the company's media relations, providing the latest racing betting news , as well as Coral's sponsorship and event
portfolio. A keen sports fan, and long-suffering Portsmouth supporter (the

heading south, or east or west, to the sun, and that liking for the sunshine
explains why he will always prefer flat racing to the jumps.
