BIG DRIFTER - High Definition Now 7/1 For Epsom Derby

High Definiton

What was thought to be Aidan O'Brien's best chance of a Derby winner this season, High Definition has now drifted out to 7/ in the ante-post betting for the Classic event.

The three year old has only been seen twice to date, but was one of the most remembered winners for O'Brien on his debut last season, when landing a maiden event over a mile at The Curragh.

High Defintion was then sent into the Group Two Beresford Stakes, a race O'Brien has won 11 of the last 12 years with the likes of Capri, Japan and Saxon Warrior.

The colt was sent off as the favourite for the event and when going for home looked in big trouble being last of the pack, but he put in a superb final few furlongs to get up near the finish

It showed he was a Derby horse in the making getting better the further he went and now O'Brien is weighing up his options as where to start him off before sending him to Epsom.

Set to start his campaign off at Lingfield on Saturday, O'Brien on Thursday revealed he would in fact be swerving the event he used for Anthony Van Dyck before winning it in 2019, due to his bloods not being right.

With this, the form of the O'Brien horses running in both England and Ireland over the last few weeks have not been the same as how his horses are usually running at this time of the year.

All of these factors coming together have seen the colt drift from 4/1 out to 7/1 without even being seen this term for the Group One event.
