Epsom Derby 2023 Ante-Post Selection

Alexandroupolis 16/1

The pinnacle of the flat season is the Group One Epsom Derby with every trainer, jockey and owner wanting to win the race and we are putting up an early ante-post selection for the 2023 renewal.

A three year old son of Camelot who was bought for 240,000gns looked a very smart prospect on his sole two year old run in September 2022.

Over 1m 1/2f at Galway, having had to bide his time behind runners, when Wayne Lordan found a gap he powered home to beat a staying on Espionage, who is his stablemate.

Related to Group One winner Kew Gardens, he has stamina in his pedigree and the further he goes the better he will become, especially on soft ground.

He is currently 16/1 for the Derby in June and we can only see his price contracting even more having already been 25/1 before Aidan O'Brien's press day this week, where he gave him a favourable mention.
