Joint favourites for Irish Derby as twelve remain in Curragh Classic


Wings Of Eagles and Cracksman are 9-4 joint favourites with Coral for Saturday’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, after the Investec Derby first and third were among twelve entries for for the Curragh Classic today.  The Andre Fabre-trained Waldgeist is next in the betting at 10-3, ahead of Capri at 10-1.

“Although Wings Of Eagles came out on top at Epsom earlier this month, the odds suggests a repeat success is far from guaranteed, with the Investec Derby winner sharing favouritism with Cracksman, while Andre Fabre has plenty of confidence in his raider Waldgeist, ensuring this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby has a wide open look to it,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
