2013 Epsom Derby field

    The Aidan O'Brien-trained Kingsbarns heads Coral's betting for the Investec Derby betting at 4-1, following the second entry stage for the Epsom Classic.

Telescope, well-backed through the winter, is the 6-1 second favourite, ahead of Dawn Approach and the favourite's stablemate, Mars, both 8-1, with the latter clipped from 10-1 today with Coral.

"Kingsbarns looks unlikely to line up in the Qipco 2,000 Guineas next month, and although he remains favourite for the second colts' Classic of the year, punters are unsurprisingly playing a waiting game as far as his Investec Derby bid goes," said Coral's David Stevens.
"By contrast his stablemate Mars has been supported in recent days, while Telescope was the main ante-post mover through the winter months," added Stevens.
Switching codes, the Grand National hero, Auroras Encore, is 10-1 joint second favourite with the sponsor for the Coral Scottish Grand National, despite trainer Sue Smith's husband, Harvey, criticising the handicapper for raising the Aintree hero 11lb.
"Obviously we would be delighted to see Auroras Encore line up at Ayr next week, but Harvey Smith has said the weights rise could prevent the horse from attempting a famous National double, although for now we have left him as 10-1 joint second favourite, as he would have a major chance despite the higher mark in our opinion," said Coral's David Stevens.
