2019 Epsom Derby

The 2018 Epsom Derby will see some of the the leading three-year-old colts take their place in the Classic and as always it is shaping up to be a brilliant race as the best in the business descend on the downs.

Any number of horses are being backed for the big race at the moment with the race looking wide open. The Aidan O'Brien trained Saxon Warrior is towards the head of the odds, whilst the same can be said of Hazapour who impressed in winning the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial for Dermot Weld.

Other Epsom Derby Runners this year include Dante Stakes winner Roaring Lion who looks to be a major threat and Hazapour, who won the Derrinstown stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown for Dermot Weld.

Epsom Derby Form 2019

Trying to find the winner of the Epsom Derby is a tricky assignment for even the best form students with so many factors and unknowns to take in to consideration. Assessing the best form of these three year olds' is getting more difficult every year and its not making betting on the Epsom Derby any easier.

In the past there was the many trials leading up to the race which gave a big guide as to which horse was at the top of its' game and had trained don well from its two year old season the previous year.

However, what is happening more often is that the main trainers are doing most of their preparation at home and not running in the Derby trials, with many opting for just the one prep race or in many cases sending their horses straight to Epsom.

In our Epsom Derby Form review we will be giving as much latest news to assist in selecting the winner as possible from the pick of the two year old form through to the leading fancies based on known form from the early season trials right through to the pedigree of the winners as many are the progeny of previous Derby winners.
