Less than a month after the British equivalent has taken place at Epsom, a field of talented three-year-old colts travel to the Curragh to battle it out in the Irish Derby. Horses who impress in that historic Classic often go on to run in the Irish Derby, so it's no surprise to see the betting dominated by horses who ran in the Epsom Derby.

Let's take a look through the latest Irish Derby betting and run through the headline entries.

As Desert Crown eased over the line in the Epsom Derby, Westover flew home to place a close third. 

Ralph Beckett's Sandown Classic Trial winner found all sorts of traffic problems in running that day and did brilliantly to finish so close to Desert Crown and runner-up, Hoo Ya Mal. Bookmakers Coral were impressive enough to install Westover as their 6/4 favourite for the Irish Derby.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead told RacingInsider.com, “The Irish Derby follows up the Epsom Derby earlier this month and it is a horse who finished strongly last time out to finish third in that race who is favourite to land the Irish spoils this weekend, Westover being backed to come home in front with a clear run this time around.”

Aidan O'Brien shocked the press today when he stated that Epsom Oaks winner, Tuesday will be supplemented into this Classic. O'Brien has won the Irish Derby 14 times, but Tuesday would be the first Ballydoyle filly to win this Classic and Coral makes her their 2/1 second-favourite.

Stone Age sweated up noticeably prior to his sixth-place finish in the Epsom Derby. Changingoftheguard, who finished one place ahead of Stone Age at Epsom and ran out an impressive winner of the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot last week. Both could join Tuesday in this Classic.

Dante Stakes third, Bluegrass and Lingfield Derby Trial winner, United Nations could also fly the flag for Ballydoyle. Donnacha O'Brien has entered up Piz Badile, who could never get involved in the Epsom Derby, while the oldest of Aidan's sons, Joseph O'Brien could be represented by Hannibal Barca.

David Menuisier has handed an entry to Cocked Hat Stakes winner, Lionel. Other possible Irish Derby runners include Charlie Appleby's duo of Nations Pride and New London, Martyn Meade's Zechariah and James Ferguson's El Bodegon.
