17:15 Curragh – Saxon Warrior (BEST ODDS 5/6 with Betfair)
I can’t look beyond Saxon Warrior, the favourite, for this year’s Irish Derby. It all went wrong for him at Epsom. He stumbled out of the stalls, then didn’t have a clear run and was hampered before finishing fourth. I feel that he has what it takes to atone for that run and as long as he starts well this time around he should win. He’s won here before and has a world class jockey and trainer supporting him. I’m very excited to see him run.
