Third Realm – 4.30 Epsom (14/1 – Various)
Representing Roger Varian’s yard in the Derby, Third Realm could well show further improvement on his toughest assignment to date.
The son of Sea The Stars showed his stamina and promise in a maiden at Nottingham back in April, before showing progress in Listed competition at Lingfield in the Derby Trial.
The colt took the lead with two furlongs remaining and kept on gamely, seeing off rival Adayar by one and a quarter lengths.
Stepped up into Grouped company for the first time, the three-year-old has shown hints that he could compete at this level.
With a price of 14/1, Third Realm could push into the places at least here.
