The third Classic of the Irish Flat racing season takes place at the Curragh this weekend!

A mahoosive prize pot worth €1m is up for grabs in the 2022 Irish Derby, with the first horse past the post set to earn a bumper €580,000 for connections.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

As well as being the highlight of the three-day Derby Meeting at the Curragh, it could act as a shot at redemption for colts beaten by Desert Crown in the Epsom equivalent. If that wasn’t tempting enough, there’s a filly in the field as Epsom Oaks heroine Tuesday takes her chance.

You’ll find all the key details about the 2022 Irish Derby including the date, start time and Paddy Power’s latest odds below.

When is the Irish Derby?

The 2022 Irish Derby is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 25 at 3.45pm. Hurricane Lane won last year’s renewal three weeks after finishing third at Epsom. The Frankel colt added further Group 1 glory to his CV by winning the Grand Prix de Paris and the St Leger before rounding off his three-year-old campaign by finishing third in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Who is the favourite to win the Irish Derby?

Tuesday is the sole representative for Aidan O’Brien as the Epsom Oaks winner attempts to land a second Classic in the space of three weeks. She is also bidding to become the first filly to win the race in 28 years and has a 3lbs sex allowance.

Westover is also prominent in the betting after finishing third in the Epsom Derby. Ralph Beckett’s charge met traffic in running at Epsom before finishing like a train to get within 2¾l of Desert Crown.
