The 2021 Epsom Derby looks set to be one of the most unpredictable in the history of the storied UK Triple Crown race, with no clear favourite to succeed last year’s winner, Anthony Van Dyck. Of the warm Derby predictions out there, English King is probably the most fancied. He won the Lingfield Derby Trial in June, as Van Dyck did in 2019, and is being ridden by legendary jockey Frankie Dettori – fresh off a hat-trick at Ascot.

The likes of Russian Emperor and Vatican City are also being tipped, while at longer Epsom Derby odds, outsider Max Vega is regarded as the wild card of choice by many.
The Derby, as it’s more widely known amongst horse racing fans in the UK, dates back to 1780 – when it was first staged with a purse of £1065 and 15 shillings at stake. Now ready for its 241st running, it has the distinction of being the UK’s most lucrative flat race, with prize money totalling over £1.6m this year – or more than $2m in new money. And as the second-leg of the prestigious UK Triple Crown series, it’s without question of the pinnacles of Thoroughbred racing in the country.
