UK Horse Racing - Eagle Mountain favorite for the Irish Derby

 Eagle Mountain and Boscobel strong favourites for the 2007 Irish Derby at the Curragh Racecourse on Sunday.

UK Horse Racing - Eagle Mountain favorite for the Irish Derby The 2007 Budweiser Irish Derby starts on July 1st at 3:50 and with a purse of £1,500,000 it will attract some of the best colts and bettors. Our recommended British online bookmaker Bet365 as usual offers the best odds on the Irish Derby. According to the bookie, "Eagle Mountain" is the favorite to win the Derby on Sunday with betting odds of 1/1, followed by "Boscobel" with odds on winning 11/2.

 Eagle Mountain, trained by O'Brien, raced last earlier this month, June 2nd, at the Epsom Downs for the Vodafone Derby Stakes and finished 2nd to Authorized. The colt held up well in rear, 18th straight, headway from 2f out, stayed on to take 2nd inside final furlong, drew clear of rest, but had no chance with the impressive winner. Eagle Mountain has finished first at only one race in its last 6 starts, but that was also at the Curragh Racecourse, October of last year, and the colt is quite familiar with this turf.

 Boscobel, trained by M. Johnston, could prove the best bet for the Irish Derby with the 11/2 odds. The chestnut colt has an impressive 5 out of last 6 record and is going strong for the 2007 Irish Derby. Boscobel won its last race at the Royal Ascot on June 22nd for the King Edward VII Stakes. Boscobel led and set steady pace, ridden and quickened 3 lengths clear over 2f out in that race. Although it has been just a week since Boscobel raced, the colt has all the potential of winning the Irish Derby.

Full list of the 2007 Irish Derby and betting odds as posted by Bet365:

Eagle Mountain 1/1
Boscobel 11/2
