Which Horse Is Looking Likely to Win the Epsom Derby This Weekend?

Date: 6/03/2021

The horse racing calendar is now in full swing, with the jump season ending after Cheltenham earlier in the year, we are now getting down to the biggest race of the year on the flats, The Epsom Derby. This is a race which the best three-year-olds will be pitting up against each other from around England and Ireland to become the fastest flat racers over one mile and four furlongs. With the race due to take place at 4:30pm (BST) this Saturday, we thought we'd investigate some of the favourites for the race.

The heavy favourite going into the race this weekend is Bolshoi Ballet whose sire is the rather impressive Galileo who had victories at the Ballysax Stakes and Derrinstown Stud Derby Trials, will be looking to emulate the success of his father. Trained by Aiden O'Brien, who has won the Epsom Derby more than any other trainer will be looking to his star horse Bolshoi Ballet to claim his 7th Epsom win this weekend priced at 5/4 as seen on which are offering some of the best odds on the market for the Epsom Derby and all other sporting events in Hungary.

Although, if there is one horse that might have something to say about that then it will be his stablemate High Definition who is currently priced at 7/1 to win the Derby this weekend. Although O'Brien has won this race more than any other trainer, his last three wins have come from horses that aren't his stables first string and so if history repeats itself then High Definition is certainly in with a chance and punters could be looking elsewhere for value in the O'Brien stable.

The final horse in which we believe should be kept an eye on during this year's race is that of Mac Swiney who has quietly gone under the radar as one of the most eye-catching horses to keep your eye on for the Derby this weekend, currently priced at 9/1. The reason why we believe Mac Swiney to have a lot of value at this price is due to the fact that he is the only horse to have won a Grade 1 in their career, which were in soft and heavy ground which isn't likely this weekend, but certainly a horse to look out for having won the Irish 2000 Guineas.
