Queen’s horse becomes Derby favourite

HORSE RACING: The Queen’s Carlton House is the new favourite for next month’s Investec Derby after winning trial race the Dante Stakes at York yesterday. Jockey Ryan Moore brought Sir Michael Stoute’s colt home a length-and-a-half ahead of favourite Seville. Carlton House, who was last night quoted at 5-2 by bookmakers William Hill, is set to be the Queen’s first entry in the Epsom Classic for 30 years, when Church Parade was fifth.
