DAVID HILL: 'Ivan Allan has the race pocketed as far as I can see. Olympic Express first and Golconda the danger. I feel it is a very average Derby. It's a field full of non-stayers and I suppose therefore the winner will be a non-stayer but even so I don't like Aucash. I really don't feel he will see the trip out.' DEREK CRUZ: 'Olympic Express will be sitting off the pace and finishing off the race very strongly. He looked like a galloping machine last time he raced. Aucash's form has probably dipped a little bit lately but Ollie Doleuze will get him some cover and he might improve. Goggles is another who finished off well last time and I would also expect Magical Warrior to run a good race.' LAWRIE FOWNES: 'It's a difficult Derby because the ones who are sure to run the distance strongly, like Luckswell and Magical Warrior, are suspect on class. The horse I would probably end up plumping for is Danamite, which we almost had bought to come to my yard. He is solid on class and the distance, even though his preparation has not been ideal. He has shown enough on a limited preparation to say that he can do the job. I think Aucash is bred perfectly to be a Derby horse and you can't deny Olympic Express. His win in the Classic Mile was emphatic.' DWAYNE DUNN: 'Aucash felt like a very nice horse when I rode him. I don't think gate 14 will be a problem because he is capable of racing handy and tough enough to keep going. Just his class alone will take him a long way in the race. Ivan Allan is obviously the key to the race but I do have a question mark over his favourite, Olympic Express. His win in the Classic Mile was awesome, perhaps even too good. If he goes like that again, he will be too good and is really something special, but you don't often see them do that and then repeat it next time.' ALEX WONG YU-ON: 'If I could pick one horse to run for me in the Derby it would be Precision. He has done everything right, he has had a good preparation and he has a good jockey and draw. For the danger, probably Olympic Express is the horse to beat.' GEOFF LANE: 'I think Olympic Express is the one they all have to beat. He was very impressive last start. The new factor could be the going, as there is some rain forecast. If that arrives and makes the track a little soft then that could help Danamite. He has had a few problems which haven't been helped by hard tracks, so give in the going could help him. The other strong hopes are Aucash and Goggles.'
