I think how New Approach goes will depend on the handicapper, what will he do with him?  If I was to guess I'd say he'll hedge his bets and put him in somewhere in the middle of the field, personally I wont be backing him.  I'm not sure he'll get the trip  ???
Interesting to see that Murtagh has opted to partner King of Rome

Handicappers in the Derby, jaysus christ it isn't that bad of a race.  Plus, Murtagh wouldn't have been offerred the ride anyway seeing as though he rides for O'Brien not Bolger!

It's been a long time since anyone did a Derby two-in-a-row.

excuse me if i'm wrong but is the derby not for 3-year-olds only therefore meaning a horse can't run in it twice. #

Authorised won it last year at even money with frankie dittorri on board for his first derby win in 12 attempts i think
we're here for a good time, not a long time

Derby now being managed by Bertie Ahern who has landed the big job in sport he talked about when booted out of he left government.
Has decreed that dead horses and owners of dead horses are welcome.
De ting is dat de horse may be dead or m-may not or not be known if he d-died or de owner may have died or if he didn't den dat's not de answer and de derby was confidential so it was and de horses didnt want to disclose dey were in it if dey were and de winnings was all sterling round sums and I gave bet to de bookie and he gave me it back and dere is no record or betting slip as we are friends and de whole ting coulddnt be simpler...
Fierce tame altogether

I can cover for Bertie, I gave him four solid tips one day when he was going to England and he won eight grande.

Good man Bud. I knew you'd come back, once you got the smell of the grass on the racecourses and the football pitches.

The standard of tips hasn't been that hot in your absence and the Dubs are getting very cheeky with nobody to keep an eye on them.

AH I'm not back in the real sense Hardy, just took a peep in this morning, up to my eyes but I will get back after a few weeks or a month or so - If I'm not assasinated by Paddy Power.  Keep 'er lit. :)
