Saxon Warrior may be odds-on to land the Derby but he faces a tough challenger.
William Haggis-trained Young Rascal has had his odds dramatically cut for the Investec Derby, following a mightily impressive win at Chester.
The three-year-old has been cut from 66/1 this morning, into just 12/1 following steady backing for victory in the Epsom Classic.
The Bernard Kantor-owned horse romped home impressive in today’s effort at Chester on just his third appearance – and punters have taken notice.
Since Young Rascal took the spoils earlier on today, a whopping 65% of all bets have been placed on the three-year-old.
Jockey James Doyle said: "He's very talented. He showed a glimmer of that at Newbury and today he's learned plenty.
“We know he's a big unit and he's got a big stride to him. He was a little bit inexperienced and behind the bridle at Newbury so we thought we'd bring him here and teach him plenty.”
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Young Rascal's run today was more impressive than just the bare win, he had to pull wide at the tight Roodee and come between horses to assert late on. There is more to come from this one.
