WALKIN’ IN A DERBY WONDERLAND
Trainer Ed Walker gives us thelatest before his stable star English King goes in the Derby.
He said: “The nerves have been kicking in for quite a long time, to be honest.
“It’s pleasing the string seems in good order. A couple of weeks ago I was a little anxious, as a lot of them were running well but some were needing their first runs.
“Quite a lot now are having their second runs and hitting the bullseye, which always helps settle the nerves a bit.
“I have to say the draw doesn’t worry me.
“Frankie has seen and done it all before. A few weeks ago I was expecting a smaller field, so it may be more tactical than normal, but then it’s always tactical in the Derby.
“We’ve got the right man on board to navigate the waters.”
