Epsom Derby 2017: Wings of Eagles beats favourites Cliffs of Moher and Cracksman

Wings of Eagles

Little-known jockey Padraig Beggy, who served a one-year drugs ban, won the Epsom Derby on Saturday on Aidan O’Brien’s 40-1 shot Wings of Eagles.

It proved a debut Derby victory for 31-year-old Beggy, who was given the suspension in Australia in 2014 after a positive test for cocaine.

The outsider came from deep to beat much-fancied stablemate Cliffs of Moher and 7-2 favourite Cracksman.
