The favourite amongst most bookies is Dawn Approach and you’ll find evens betting odds at PaddyPower and Ladbrokes while William Hill offer odds of 4/5 with Betfred offering the best odds at 11/10 and are our 'free bet' tip for this years Epsom Derby - especially if you utilise Betfred's free bet offer. This Irish horse, trained by JS Bolger has won 7 out of 7 races on the flat this season and is certainly hitting form at the right time.
Battle of Marengo and Magician are also strong opponents to claim the title of the Derby Stakes. Battle of Marengo is another Irish horse with William Hill, Ladbrokes and PaddyPower all offering betting odds of 11/2 and provides a decent opportunity to profit from free bets.
Magician, an Irish bay colt trained by AP O’Brien, looks set to be another challenger for the race with 11/2 odds on offer at Coral while Bet365 offers punters odds of 4/1.
Ocovango, Chopin and Ruler of the World are also up there in the top 6 and you could always opt to use a free bet offer on an outsider such as Flying the Flag who currently has odds of 100/1 with PaddyPower and William Hill but is unfortunately highly unlikely to win.
In the run up to the race keep an eye on your favourite bookies homepage as they tend to offer special Epsom Derby free bets and promotions to take advantage of on the day!
