Epsom Derby Form Guide 2017


A winner of a slowly run Epsom Derby Trial on seasonal debut for John Gosden and Golden Horn owner Anthony Oppenheimer. A son of Frankel so shouldn't lack for speed but he needed every inch of the trip to win that trial race and visually looked like he would love the 1m4f. Big plus that he has proven himself on the track but will face much more quality in the Derby.


Craven Stakes winner at Newmarket who ran a decent race in the 2000 Guineas to finish 6th for Martyn Meade. Son of Frankel so sure to attract attention, and related to Galileo so well bred and appeared to lack the pace needed down at a mile.

Venice Beach

A beautifully bred Ballydoyle colt by Galileo and related to an Arc winner in Danedream so certainly has the pedigree to be a major player at Epsom. An easy winner of a maiden at Tipperary back in April before coming out on top of a Ballydoyle 1-2-3 in the Chester Vase. He will need to improve again to compete in a Derby but he is going in the right direction.

Cliffs Of Moher

A very impressive winner of his maiden at Leopardstown last season, and clearly to be respected as a son fo Galileo for Aidan O'Brien. Started as an odds-on shot for the Dee Stakes at Chester on his only start this term and duly obliged on the Roodee. It wasn't the performance of a superstar at Chester but he got the job done and should have learnt plenty that day.

Best Solution

A Group 3 winner as a 2YO who didin't pull up any trees in Meydan earlier this season, but bounced back with a super impressive win in the Lingfield Derby Trial for Godolphin. Pedigree and Dubai form doesn't scream Derby winner but he streaked clear of the field at Lingfiled and on that basis he more than deserves his chance at Epsom.


Narrowly beaten by Cracksman in the Derby Trial at Epsom so has good form on the track. He has improved again since that run with his win in the Dante Stakes at York a very taking success ahead of some potential Derby opponents. Has plenty of experience under this belt so might not have much more improvement to come and has had to be supplemented, but the form is rock solid.
