Moonlight Magic eclipses Ballydoyle team in Derrinstown

Report: Leopardstown, Sunday

Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial Stakes (Group 3) 1m, 3yo

THE Investec Derby picture was muddied even further after Moonlight Magic kept the Ballydoyle battalions at bay in Ireland’s premier Classic trial for Jim Bolger and Godolphin.

The 6-1 winner was cut into 12-1 (from 25) by BetVictor for Epsom but the search for clarity continues, particularly bearing in mind the first five home finished in a heap.

Aidan O’Brien was responsible for half the eight-strong field but was forced to settle for minor honours as Shogun, the mount of Ryan Moore, and Idaho, the 15-8 favourite, followed Moonlight Magic home.

More to follow . . .
