O’Brien’s Saxon Warrior cut into 8/1 for 2018 Epsom Derby success
The 2018 Epsom Derby may be a speck on the horizon but already we’ve seen significant support come in for Saxon Warrior.
Aidan O’Brien’s charge is two from two so far and has been cut into 8/1 from 10/1 for Derby glory.
The Irish trainer is going for a second consecutive win in the Classic after landing last year’s prize with Wings of Eagles.
In total, the 47-year-old has won four of the last six stagings of the event.
With those statistics in mind, 10/1 shot The Pentagon must also be taken into consideration.
Why? Well the two-year-old is another O’Brien runner.
On top of that, he already has black-type success to his name after landing the Group 3 Tyros Stakes earlier this year.
And on that basis, he must be respected.
