Military March to miss Epsom Derby

| 25.06.2020

The joint second favourite has pulled out of the race

Military March will miss the Epsom Derby next weekend after withdrawing from the race.

The Godolphin horse finished fourth on his last run in the 2,000 Guineas and he was the 5/1 joint-second favourite for the Epsom Classic.

English King remains the 9/4 favourite (from 5/2) to triumph next weekend.

“Military March’s absence from the Investec Derby is a blow to Godolphin, and also to those punters who supported the colt to improve from his Guineas run,” said Coral’s David Stephens.

“As the 5/1 joint-second favourite, he was also one of the strongest market rivals to the favourite English King, with the Lingfield Trial winner getting ever shorter at the head of the betting.”
