Eydon (Ire) (Olden Times {GB}) has been confirmed to start in Saturday's G1 Cazoo Derby at Epsom, according to trainer Roger Varian.

“I'm pleased to say the horse is in great form and following discussions with his owner, Prince A A Faisal, we plan to run in the Derby at Epsom on Saturday and not the [G1] Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly on Sunday.”

Kicking off the season with a runner-up finish going a mile at Newcastle in February, the dark bay took the nine-furlong Feilden S. Apr. 14 before finishing just over four lengths behind Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) when fourth in the G1 2000 Guineas at Newmarket Apr. 30. Eydon, who enjoyed a spin around the track at last week's Gallops Morning, is a general 20-1 shot for the Derby.
