Dylan Thomas son wins Epsom Derby Trial

Goldoni (3g Dylan Thomas-Lasso, by Indian Ridge) ran out an impressive winner of the Investec Derby Trial at Epsom on Wednesday and looks sure to make his mark in higher company this year. As a gelding, the Marston Stud-bred son of Dylan Thomas is ineligible for the Derby itself but trainer Andrew Balding has other Group race targets. "He was a pretty useful horse anyway but he has improved a lot for being gelded and should have a good season," Balding told PA Sport. "He'll probably run in the G3 Lingfield Derby Trial now and then the G2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot."
