Who is the favourite to win the Irish Derby 2024?

The runner up at Epsom is the favourite to go one better at the Curragh.

Los Angeles will head Aidan O'Brien's challenge for the Irish Derby but will have to reverse the Derby form with runner-up Ambiente Friendly for James Fanshawe.

Aidan O’Brien is bidding to win this prestigious race for a record-extending 16th time.

However, Ambiente Friendly remains the marginal favourite for the race having beat all bar City Of Troy (who returns next week in the Coral Eclipse) when finishing a two and three-quarter length runner-up in the Derby at Epsom. 

Los Angeles finished a further three and a quarter lengths behind in third.

Last year's Irish Derby was won by Epsom Derby winner Auguste Rodin, who landed another Group 1 in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot last week.
