Aiden O’Brien sends three runners to this year’s Epsom Derby in the shape of Adelaide River, San Antonio and current market favourite Auguste Rodin. The latter finished second on debut before winning three times in a row, including Group Two Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown and the Group One Futurity Trophy Stakes at Doncaster. He then ran no race on reappearance in 2023 in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, finishing twelfth, but retains plenty of the potential he showed in 2022.
This is another tough assignment with many runners making claims, but he is one of those in the running. Ryan Moore is booked to ride.
