To avoid a clash with the FA Cup Final, the 2023 Epsom Derby will take place at 1:30pm on June 3rd. 14 colts were confirmed for this famous Classic on Thursday and the betting for this year's Derby is looking decidedly open.

Here's our guide to the 2023 Epsom Derby, including our best betting tips.

2023 Epsom Derby Tips - Already Advised

I landed on SPREWELL at the ante-post stage and I remain hopeful that Jessica Harrington's colt will run a huge race.

Having been narrowly beaten on both of his juvenile outings, Sprewell got off the mark with a hard-fought victory over a mile at Naas. Shane Foley's mount then took in the Derby Trial at Leopardstown earlier this month, quickening up nicely at the two-furlong pole to put that race to bed.

Sprewell clearly progressed between his first and second runs this term and I see no reason why he won't have improved again for that victory at Leopardstown. Harrington's colt is by Churchill, who's progeny have excelled over a wide range of trips on all kinds of ground and his dam - herself a Group One winner over a mile-and-a-quarter - has produced several good-quality middle-distance horses.

Shane Foley's mount remains a 12/1 shot, the same price I took ante-post. At that price, Sprewell represents each-way value.

2023 Epsom Derby  Tips - Final Selection

I toyed with the idea of either Artistic Star of Adelaide River as my final selection, as both look overpriced. However, the more I watch MILITARY ORDER'S victory at Lingfield, the more I feel like Charlie Appleby's star is the perfect fit for the Derby.

Military Order got off the mark on his final juvenile outing and made all to claim a commanding victory over a couple of decent sorts on his reappearance at Newbury. William Buick's mount then got the better of a game Waipiro in the Lingfield trial, where Military Order quickened to lead going into the straight and seemed to quicken again with a furlong to travel, putting clear daylight between himself and the runner-up.

For those who don't know, Military Order is a full brother to Adayar, who won the Derby from stall one in 2021. Buick's mount has been drawn nicely up in stall ten and a current price of 4/1 seems very fair indeed.
