The focus may be on Sandown for National Hunt fans but for anyone looking for Derby clues the best place to look today is the 5.10 totepool Betting on All UK Racing Maiden Stakes (Class 5) a £2,911.05 race over just shy of 1m2f at Leicester.
For this lowly race sees the debut of the Roger Varian trained UAE Prince, – Sea the Stars – By Request (Giant’s Causeway) – owned by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum and ridden by Andrea Atzeni.
And if you plan to have a bet on the Derby UAE Prince should definitely be on your radar.
This £650,000 yearling is a second foal of an unplaced dam but who is half sister to 1m2f Group Winner/Leger 2nd Midas Touch and 1m2f Group-placed Streetcar to Stars.
And UAE Prince has been heavily backed for the Derby at 25-1 all this last week by people who should know.
He’s currently at around Evens in today’s Leicester race with Bet365; but he’s currently only 16-1 with the same firm for the Derby.
