Investec Derby: Wings Of Eagles wins at 40/1 for Aidan O’Brien

Wings Of Eagles, ridden by Padraig Beggy, wins the Investec Derby
Wings Of Eagles caused a huge 40/1 upset in the Investec Derby at Epsom to propel jockey Padraig Beggy into the limelight.

With only two behind him with three furlongs to run, the son of 2011 Derby winner Pour Moi came from the clouds to claim his Aidan O’Brien-trained stablemate Cliffs Of Moher in the dying strides.

The result had looked like going with the form book as Cliffs Of Moher just got the better of the two Frankel colts, Cracksman and Eminent, inside the final furlong.

But that was not taking into account Wings Of Eagles, the apparent Ballydoyle fifth string, who provided O’Brien with a sixth Derby winner.

Beggy, having his first ride in the race, said: “That’s my first ride, but when you’re riding one for Aidan you don’t worry about the price, they always have a chance.

“I had a bit of bad luck in running but probably got there at the right time in the end.”

Enable ran out an impressive winner of the Investec Oaks at  Epsom in the hands of Frankie Dettori.

John Gosden’s filly was a 6-1 shot for a mile-and-a-half Classic run in driving rain after a thunderstorm hit the track just minutes before the off.

Pocket full of  dreams took the field along for much of the way, but was a spent force heading inside the final three furlongs.
Her stablemate Rhododendron, the 8-11 favourite after finishing second to fellow Aidan O’Brien inmate Winter in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, loomed up ominously, but Enable was also delivered with her challenge and the pair settled down to fight it out.

Rhododendron briefly looked to be travelling the better, but her stamina appeared to give out passing the furlong marker and the further Enable went the better she looked and there was five lengths between them at the line. Alluringly was third.
Gosden said: “We knew there’d be a strong pace, but I didn’t think quite that strong.

O’Brien, whose runners had suffered a marked delay in getting to the track after travel problems in Ireland, said of Rhododendron: “I thought she ran very well, everything went lovely and she ran a good race.

There was drama before the off when American challenger Daddys Lil Darling bolted to the start, with Olivier Peslier deciding to bail out just before she reached the stalls.

Kenny McPeek commented “Hopefully the filly is OK, we’ll get back and regroup. I haven’t thought beyond today, but I will be back, you can’t predict that.”
