A maximum field will go to post on Saturday for the premier flat race of the season The Derby. 18 Derby Runners, all three year old colts will do battle on the Epsom Downs with the Dermot Weld trained horse Casual Conquest heading the 2008 Derby Betting due to a devastating turn of hoof to win the best trial in the Emerald Isle, the Derrinstown at Leopardstown.

The race this year is so open that Aidan O’Brien has entered five of his best to try and win the race, Sir Michael Stoute is also mob handed in the race with three entries. Then you must throw into the mix the Godolphin entry and the past master Henry Cecil, both win horses that many will fancy. It is likely, that this year’s winner will be the horse that handles the pre race hoopla and the downhill run at tattenham corner the best, factors that only the most balanced of horses and the one with an immaculate temperament can master.

Or could the secret to the result of the 2008 Derby lie simply in the number 8? Trainer Luca Cumani won the race in 1988 and 1998 and he has a top fancy in a horse called Curtain Call who is second favourite having won in a hack canter at Nottingham last time out and he loves the soft ground which he is likely to get this Saturday and is our Derby Tip.

Now that you have the inside track on this year’s winner all that’s required is to get your bets on with any of the top UK Online Bookmakers who are all offering the very best Derby free bets for this race.
