LORD DARLINGTON(2)/SMART N NOBLE (4)-PLACE.

8. COSTA DEL SOL is the horse to watch in the Derby, ignore 2nd to PHOENIX TIGER when he was deliberately kept far too back by Chauhan as a test run .PHOENIX TIGER was similarly tested to finish from behind by C Donoghue in last run, has to be beaten as he is likely to grab the lead homeward bound, dam being ordinary I am skeptical about him over extra yards. MYRLEWOOD has shown the best turn of foot and has to be a cover bet by the wise people as she has won easily over this distance in last run. DESERT GOD is the best performed with two Derby’s against his name. BULLRUN is best in tracks, GESTAPO , SHIVALIK HEROINE, and BOLD COMMAND may surprise with better than expected performances.
