Who is the favourite to win the Epsom Derby 2024?

Punters are prepared to excuse the favourite’s Guineas run.

One classic quickly follows the next on Derby weekend at Epsom.

As is the case with the Oaks betting, the beaten Guineas favourite retains their position at the top of the Epsom Derby market five days out from the race.

City Of Troy is backed to bounce back in a similar fashion to last year's winner Auguste Rodin and land a 10th win in the race for trainer Aidan O'Brien.

Who is the favourite to win the Derby at Epsom?

City Of Troy is the favourite to win the Derby at a best price of 9/4 on bet365.

Unbeaten in three starts at two, the son of Justify looked to have the world at his feet going into classic season.

Indeed, the bookmakers agreed as they priced him up as the 4/6 favourite for the Newmarket classic. However, he could only beat two rivals home as he trailed in nearly 17 lengths behind the winner in ninth.

It is thought that he got upset in the stalls that day, something which hasn't happened before, but is that excuse enough for Jamie Radford?

Despite his obvious claims, and popularity among the oddschecker community (22% of the bets in the last seven days), Jamie thinks it's wiser to look at the Ancient Wisdom form line or side with Dancing Gemini at a bigger price. Find out more here.
