obviously sprang a surprise, finding plenty of improvement for an increased test of stamina, winning in a style very reminiscent of his sire Pour Moi, sweeping to the front close home and if anything value for more than the winning margin; dropped out, pushed along 4f out, still plenty to do when not clear run 3f out, not clear run again 2f out, switched outside, stayed on strongly final 1f, led close home; he has the potential to progress further and there's no reason that he won't prove a high-class middle-distance colt in time, the Irish Derby and St Leger the obvious options, a drop back in trip unlikely to be beneficial, so the Eclipse/International route less appealling.

upped in trip, was well served by the extra emphasis on stamina and progressed again, doing everything right bar win, clearly the Ballydoyle first string and likely to win at this level before the year is out, his trainer suggesting he may yet prove the best of his team, though beaten fair and square on the day; raced off the pace, headway over 2f out, found plenty to lead 1f out, stayed on, headed close home; will continue to give good account.

hadn't impressed everyone in the Trial here, but that form had been boosted since and he built on it himself, albeit unable to justify good support on just his third start, not lacking anything for stamina over this longer trip but, if anything, leaving the impression that he's not yet the finished article, this environment clearly a lot tougher than what he'd previously faced, also ridden more to the fore in a well-run race than the others in the frame, though any disadvantage in that was only slight; prominent main group, hampered after 1f and tended to go in snatches, driven over 3f out, every chance 1f out, stayed on; he was having just his third run and may well have more still to offer this term, still a good chance that he will make up into a high-class colt.

upped markedly in trip and strong in the betting, acquitted himself really well on a track that probably didn't suit him ideally, this just the fourth start of his career and quite possibly more to come; held up, effort over 3f out, kept on well until held final 50 yds; clearly saw the trip out well and will prove better at middle distances and beyond than over shorter.

showed improvement for the 2f longer trip, all about stamina, his progress coming despite the track not seeming to suit him, conceivably with more to come when he tackles further still, the Queen's Vase an option, the St Leger a realistic aim later on; mid-division, headway on outside round Tattenham Corner, ridden over 2f out, hung left therafter, not quicken final 1f; remains with potential.

over 2f longer trip, ran a cracker, used as a pacemaker, but going with plenty of zest and stretching the field in the straight, giving best only late in the day, well up to winning another pattern event when running on his own account; led, kicked on over 3f out, ridden over 2f out, headed 1f out, no extra final 100 yds.

essentially confirmed the improvement shown at Lingfield, perhaps a bit closer to the pace than ideal and possibly finding the even greater emphasis on stamina stretching him; led main group, ridden early in straight, chased leader briefly 2f out, no extra inside final 1f; he's clearly a smart colt.

had clearly looked very promising at Newbury, but this proved beyond him at such an early stage of his career, running to just a similar level, not certain to improve for the 2f longer trip; mid-division, ridden before straight, ran green, no extra 2f out; he'd looked an exciting prospect at Newbury and hopefully he will be able to progress at a lower level in due course.

in first-time cheekpieces, over 2f longer trip, had a pedigree for this sort of test but the gulf between a handicap at Windsor and the Derby proved much more than he could manage to cross; hampered after 1f, in touch, headway halfway, labouring home turn, weakened over 2f out but not persevered with once held; he'd looked potentially progressive previously and hopefully this daunting experience won't have had an adverse effect on him.

Non Runners: DIORE LIA (IRE).

Winning Owner: Mr D. Smith, Mrs J. Magnier, Mr M. Tabor

Time: 2m 33.02s Closing Sectional: (3.44f): 40.30s (108.6%)

After a spring of inconclusive trials and with the leading 3-y-o colt Churchill being kept to 1m, it was no surprise that a huge field lined up for what many consider the supreme test of a racehorse, 18 eventually starting after the withdrawal of the vanity runner Diore Lia, equalling the number when Sir Percy won in 2006, the joint-largest since Kris Kin in 2003 was one of a modern-day maximum field of 20, perhaps no coincidence that Sir Percy and Kris Kin would be the 2 worst Derby winners this century, this renewal requiring a better performance, though with 4 closely matched at the line it's impossible to think the bare form is any better than average for the premier classic; that said, it must be remembered that the Derby is a beginning not an end for many of these, this a vastly different race from nearly anything they will have contested previously, stamina drawn out by a good pace - the front pair went a bit faster than ideal for themselves overall, Douglas Macarthur deserving marking up - and the track requiring an ideal mix of speed, stamina and balance; that Wings of Eagles was unconsidered beforehand - the longest-priced winner since Snow Knight in 1974 - shouldn't blind anyone to the merit of his performance, for he won fair and square and if anything was a shade better than the result after meeting a bit of traffic early in the straight, coming from a similar position to the second and fourth, though later as a result of the trouble, his success a vindication of the Ballydoyle policy of running such a large team, for all that a win for the runner-up, by Galileo rather than by a stallion now covering NH mares, might have been better commercially; for such a large field on this track, there was surprisingly little trouble in running, the one horse notably better than the result on those grounds being Salouen.

WINGS OF EAGLES (FR) obviously sprang a surprise, finding plenty of improvement for an increased test of stamina, winning in a style very reminiscent of his sire Pour Moi, sweeping to the front close home and if anything value for more than the winning margin; dropped out, pushed along 4f out, still plenty to do when not clear run 3f out, not clear run again 2f out, switched outside, stayed on strongly final 1f, led close home; he has the potential to progress further and there's no reason that he won't prove a high-class middle-distance colt in time, the Irish Derby and St Leger the obvious options, a drop back in trip unlikely to be beneficial, so the Eclipse/International route less appealling.
