2017 Irish Derby Betting Trends and Tips

Irish Derby Betting Tips

The Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby is a Group One contest run over 1m4f at the Curragh racecourse.

In recent years the race has been dominated by one trainer – Aidan O’Brien, who has landed the lucrative pot a staggering 10 times since 2001, including 8 of the last 11 renewals, and you can expect the Ballydoyle handler to be mob-handed once again.

We take a look back at past winners, plus give you all the key stats ahead of the 2017 renewal, this year run on Saturday 1st July.
