King Memphis is proving difficult to remove from the top of the Star Sports/ TRC English Derby betting. The Liz McNair trained star was one of the standout performers in Saturday’s third round and he is now the 3-1 clear favourite with sponsors Star Sports.

The Other Kobe continues to amaze on his mission to complete a famous Derby double and is next in at 9-2, closely followed by his compatriot De Lahdedah at 5-1. Crafty Shivoo is next at 8-1 ahead of Boylesports Bob and Superfast Gorden at 10-1.

As it stands, seven of the top nine in the betting represent Ireland, although it’s clear both King Memphis and Crafty Shivoo have outstanding claims for the home team.
