Listen: Aidan O’Brien’s assistant TJ Comerford in optimistic form ahead of Epsom Derby weekend

Assistant trainer to Aidan O’Brien TJ Comerford says they have plenty of optimism to look forward for Derby weekend in Epsom.

Speaking to KCLR earlier in the week, TJ says their are a number of horses with chances.

“We have 5 or 6 horses there that are probably going to take their chance in it anyway. We have the likes of Capri, and you have our horse then that won in Chester, the Dee Stakes winner Cliffs of Moher.

“We have got very good chances in them and we probably have Rose of Dendrum in the Oaks, and been honest with you she was just a bit unlucky the last time that she ran into Winter but she is probably equally a very very good filly, probably go for the Oaks as well and then on the Friday as well we have in the Coronation Cup another Group One mile and a half race, we have Highland Reel and Idalo,” he said.
