EP­SOM DERBY

SATUR­DAY, 4.30pm, Chan­nel 4

Golden Horn raced to vic­tory in the fa­mous clas­sic twelve months ago, and the same trainer-jockey com­bi­na­tion of John Gos­den and Frankie Det­tori have a big chance with Wings Of De­sire, win­ner of the Dante at York last time.

He is vy­ing for favouritism with the Ai­dan O’Brien-trained US Army Ranger, un­beaten in two starts, most re­cently in the Ch­ester Vase when scram­bling home ahead of sta­ble­mate Port Dou­glas.

O’Brien has won the race on five oc­ca­sions - Galileo (2001), High Cha­parral (2002), Camelot (2012), Ruler Of The World (2013) and Aus­tralia (2014).

Should he col­lect again he will equal the six vic­to­ries of his pre­de­ces­sor at Bal­ly­doyle, Vin­cent O’Brien.
