Ranger Heads Derby Betting After Decs

US Army Ranger heads William Hill’s betting for the Investec Derby at 7-2, after the five day declaration stage. Wings Of Desire, who has been supplemented for £75,000, is 4-1 second-favourite. Ulysses (6-1) and Cloth Of Stars (7-1) complete the four who are at single figure odds.


“This year’s Derby Trials created a volatile betting market, but now that the dust has settled, the original well-backed antepost favourite trained by Aidan O’Brien sits at the top of the betting,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


Over the past few days, Across The Stars and Red Verdon have both shortened to 25-1 from 40-1 with William Hill.
