Magna Grecia becomes FAVOURITE for The Derby after 2000 Guineas win

The first classic of the season was won by Aidan O’Brien; his 10th Guineas victory.

Magna Grecia won the 2000 Guineas in very impressive fashion and that performance has seen his odds go down to just 3/1 in places for success in The Derby next month. 

All the money pre-race was on Ten Sovereigns but it was Aidan O’Briens other big fancy that got the job done and saw the Irishman win the Guineas for the 10th time. 

You could have got 16/1 this morning for Magna Grecia in the Epsom event but that price has long gone. A best price of 5/1 is available, which puts the three-year-old above Too Darn Hot (6/1) and Japan (7/1) and straight to the top of the market. 

Despite the bookies cutting the odds, it’s actually Madhmoon (51% of bets) that has been attracting punters money since the race finished. 20/1 has given way to 12/1 in places after an encouraging performance, but the original price can still be sought.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Magna Grecia ran a blinder and Aidan O’Brien’s dominance in the Newmarket classic continues. Social media reaction has been mixed when it comes to a potential Derby entry, but bookies aren’t taking any chances about what the future could hold for this three-year-old.”
