After an injury scare a couple of days ago, Carlton House remains the bookmakers 5/2 favourite heading into the 2011 Investec Epsom Derby tomorrow, in a bid to land the Derby for Her Majesty The Queen for the first time.
Online bookmakers are offering a multitude of offers and free bets for the Investec Epsom Derby, so why not claim a free bet when betting on the Derby today?
Carlton House has finished 3 races in his early racing career, and finished in first place in the last two of those, finishing second in his first outing. The Sir Michael Stoute-trained horse was impressive in his last fixture where he comfortably outran two of his rivals this afternoon in Seville and Pisco Sour.
Carlton House was a maiden winner at Newbury in his second start as a juvenile. House had an injury scare in the build-up to the race and a slight question mark about the trip but connections have no worries on that score and have won this race three times in the last eight years.
House quickened up well off a slow pace at York last month to beat the two who reoppose today and it was hard to imagine on that occasion that those two horses could possibly turn the tables on the Queen's charge.
Aidan O'Brien's Recital is available at best price of 9/2 - offered by bet365. Recital seems the most likely to mount a challenge to Carlton House with many suggesting this to be practically a two horse race, and the bookmakers agree putting them comfortably top of the market. Recital has three victories to claim from four meets, with a third place finish to add to those results, the runner up favourite has a great chance of claiming Derby glory.
Online bookmakers favourite, Carlton House, is available at 5/2 offered by Blue Square, StanJames, Paddy Power, 888 Sport and William Hill.
