My feeling is, that this could be year of the outsider in the derby. None of the market leaders really inspire huge confidence and their are many horses at big odds who it would beof little surprise to see there or thereabouts:
Centennial: Did not run well in the Dante and arguably not classy enough, but Gosden said before that race that its a sharp 10f at York an he'l be twice as good over further. If he goes to Epsom he may not win, but the 150's I saw on Betfair could be laughable.
Thewayyouare: Again tricky to know whether he'll come over, but this horse ran like it needed further in the french Guineas, is a half brother to Peeping fawn who not only improved wit each run but obviously handled epsom. Im on this at 85 on Betfair and if it runs There is now way it will not be in the top 5 in my view.
Washington Irving: I know. It sounds ridiculous, but I thought that the horse is clearly quite immature and if you watch the trial again, he gets squeezed terribly and that not only put him off but also gave casual conquest a huge first run advantage. Would he have beaten him, almostcertainly not but if Aidan sens him to Epsom, he could run well at a Big price.
