Kameko Tops Betting To Win The 2020 Derby

22nd June 2020

The Derby at Epsom is the most prestigious horse race in Europe. This year’s contest is set to take place later than usual in July, and it should once again be a great occasion for sports fan as the best three-year-old thoroughbreds face off in Surrey.

Kameko tops the betting at 3/1 to come out on top in the 1m4f contest. He has held that position at the top of the ante-post market since winning the opening Classic of the season, the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Andrew Balding’s runner stayed on strongly in that 1m race earlier this month. This suggests the extra distance will not be a problem for the Qatar Racing-owned colt.

Balding has never won the Derby but his latest contender gives him a great chance of landing the spoils. The Berkshire-based trainer did prevail in the Oaks at Epsom in 2003 when Casual Look came out on top at odds of 10/1.

English King Put Himself Into The Frame After Derby Trial Win

English King is not far behind Kameko in the horse racing betting odds from today on the Derby at 4/1. His price came crashing down after his impressive win in the Derby Trial at Lingfield.

Last year’s Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck won that same trial at Lingfield before going on to prevail at Epsom in 2019. Connections will be hoping English King can do the same when he lines up on the Downs next month.

The victory at Lingfield was Ed Walker’s runner’s third start of his career. He was beaten on his debut at Newmarket but then scored on his final start of 2019 on the all-weather surface at Newcastle.

The son of Camelot will be bidding to repeat what his father did in 2012. Camelot, who was trained by Irish Champion Trainer Aidan O’Brien, went off as the 8/13 favourite for Derby before blowing his rivals away by five lengths.

Military March Expected To Improve At Derby Distance
Another contender whose sire won the Derby is Military March as he is the son of the 2008 winner New Approach.

Military March is a 6/1 shot for the Epsom feature in July and he looks to have a great chance of giving leading owners Godolphin their second victory in the race. The Boys in Blue won the Derby for the first time in 2018 when Masar crossed the line in front.

Trained by Saeed bin Suroor, the three-year-old colt was fourth of 15 runners in the 2000 Guineas. His breeding suggests there will be a lot more to come from the horse later this season.

All three of Military March’s runs so far have come at Newmarket so his outing at Epsom will be a new experience for the talented colt, as he aims to add his name to the roll of honour.

This year’s Derby will be the 241st running of the annual British Classic. With no crowd expected to be at Epsom, it could be one of the most unique renewals of the great British sporting event.
