Coral out to get the Horn

The Investec Derby (4.30pm) is the biggest betting race of the Flat racing season and Coral, official betting partner of the Investec Derby Festival, report brisk business since their shops opened this morning.

The East London-based firm has already laid a bet of £5,000 on Giovanni Canaletto this morning at 9/1 and there is also strong support for favourite Golden Horn at 15/8.

“The early money in the Investec Derby suggests that both Golden Horn and Giovanni Canaletto are going to be popular throughout the day, with one punter already parting with £5,000 to back the latter,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“There has been plenty of money for the favourite Golden Horn as well, though we’re standing firm at a top-price of 15/8 and want to get him in the book.”

There has also been an interesting early move for Stravagante in the Investec Private Banking Handicap (2.00pm) and the Sir Michael Stoute-trained three-year-old has been cut to 11/4 (from 7/2) by Coral.

Dolniya has strengthened her position at the head of the market for the Investec Coronation Cup (3.10pm) and the Aga Khan-owned filly is now the 10/11 market leader (from even money).
