Eight Set For Irish Derby

Tuesday | www.racingfotos.com

Saturday's G1 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby will be contested by seven colts and the filly Tuesday (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) after Aidan O'Brien confirmed just that G1 Oaks heroine for The Curragh's €1 million Classic. Drawn in stall one as she bids to become the first of her sex to prevail since Balanchine (Storm Bird) in 1994, she meets Juddmonte's G1 Derby third Westover (GB) (Frankel {GB}) who will break from stall five. With Rosegreen's Stone Age (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Changingoftheguard (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) set to go elsewhere, the form of Epsom's Blue Riband will also be represented by Flaxman Holdings' Piz Badile (Ire) (Ulysses {Ire}) and the outsider Glory Daze (Ire) (Cotai Glory {GB}). Ecurie Ama Zingteam's G3 Gallinule S. winner Hannibal Barca (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) and Normandie Stud's Listed Cocked Hat S. scorer Lionel (GB) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) are two other notable contenders.
