"It's a very open Derby," Charlton said. "He seems to get the trip, so I'd say he's got a sporting chance. In Quest For Fame's year there were only two horses that stayed the distance and they finished first and second. There are a lot of horses this year unproven at a mile and a half and some of them will definitely not stay.
"Mystic Knight is the only horse that has won a trial on a similar course and over almost the Derby distance. The winner of the Chester Vase isn't in the race."Reuse content
