The galloping track at the Curragh provides the test for the talented crop of three-year-old colts that are set to contest one of the most prestigious races on the calendar – the Irish Derby.

Auguste Rodin could bid to add a second Classic to his CV after bouncing back from his 2000 Guineas flop to land the Derby at Epsom in early June.

The Irish Derby could turn into a rerun of the English equivalent as a number of key players from Epsom are in contention to take their chance, with the race worth a stonking €712,500 to winning connections.

You can run the rule over our Irish Derby odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
