PreviewsBolshoi Ballet is going to be very popular following recent victories in the Ballysax and Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial. That said, the strength of that form can be questioned and, while he merits plenty of respect, this is a very competitive Derby. With that in mind, preference is for MAC SWINEY, who was not right when beaten by Bolshoi Ballet in the Derrinstown. Either side of that defeat, the son of New Approach has won a pair of Group 1 contests, including the Irish 2,000 Guineas last time. Jim Bolger's colt has to prove himself on a quicker surface but he should relish this step up in trip. Mohaafeth has been hugely progressive this year and the son of Frankel created a big impression when wining the Newmarket Stakes over 1m2f last time. The way he finished on that occasion suggests that this step up in trip should not be a problem and he looks to have a very bright future. Those looking for an each-way alternative should consider Youth Spirit, who was a convincing winner of the Chester Vase last time, and the Group 1-winning juvenile Gear Up.

Looks a cut above his Derby rivals after Derrinstown win.
