Marcel Brushes Aside Trophy Rivals - 16/1 For Derby

Marcel provided a third consecutive win in the Racing Post Trophy for Andrea Atzeni, with bookmakers cheering the result after the best-backed horses at the head of the market were overturned.

William Hill quote the winner at 16-1 for next year’s Derby.

“Marcel looks a horse with a bright future and he could follow in the hoof prints of Authorized and Camelot by going on to win the Derby,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
