Desert Crown wins the Derby in imperious style for Michael Stoute | The Derby

Desert Crown, trained by Sir Michael Stoute and ridden by Richard Kingscote, won the Derby at Epsom in brilliant style.

The favourite was always travelling well and there was no doubt about the result once he cruised into the lead in the straight, being eased up in the closing stages after having gone about six lengths clear of the toiling field.

The winning jockey Richard Kingscote said: “When I was a kid I was useless [as a jockey] and I’ve had a lot of support from this gentleman [Michael Stoute] here.

“[Desert Crown has] got a huge amount of class, we turned in going well and was so lovely. I [even] took a tug in the straight, he’s got a lot of class and gave me a lot of confidence. But it’s all about the man who trained him”

Hoo Ya Mal, a 150-1 outsider, posted a career best in second with Westover staying on for third place.
