Aidan O'Brien's Guineas winner is fancied to go on and take the next Classic...

"Looking further ahead, Saxon Warrior is [8.8] to win this year's Arc. Enable ([4.1]) and Cracksman ([4.4]) are the only horses available to back at a shorter price."

The 2,000 Guineas winner, Saxon Warrior, is the clear favourite to take next month's Epsom Derby trading at just [2.06] on the Betfair Exchange to follow up one Classic win with another.

Aidan O'Brien's unbeaten three-year-old was a ready winner of the year's first colts' Classic and is miles shorter than all the other runners to win at Epsom.

Every other horse in the antepost betting is double figures or more with Guineas' third and fourth, Masar and Elarqam, among the more likely contenders at around [19.0].

O'Brien is a six-time Derby-winning trainer, most recently in 2017 with Wings of Eagles, and now has nine victories in the 2,000 Guineas to his name.

Looking further ahead, Saxon Warrior is [8.8] to win this year's Arc. Enable ([4.1]) and Cracksman ([4.4]) are the only horses available to back at a shorter price.
