Native Khan betting odds
Everybody loves a talented grey horse, with Desert Orchid gaining many admirers over the course of his career. However, Flat racing has had no such lovable grey in recent memory, but this could change with Native Khan. Ed Dunlop holds the horse in high regard and he is already no stranger to big-race victories, winning twice in Group Three company at Sandown and Newmarket. This is no great surprise as his sire is multiple Group One winner Azamour.
Native Khan has to show Group One form to win Epsom Derby
Although Native Khan has won on three of his five career starts, his two defeats have both arrived in Group One company. However, it was no disgrace to finish behind Frankel in the 2000 Guineas on his latest start and he was one of a rare few to emerge from the race with any credit. Meanwhile, the step up to 1m4f and the booking of three-time Epsom Derby winner Johnny Murtagh only enhances his 2011 Epsom Derby prospects.
