Carlton House: Set to head to Ireland on Sunday

Carlton House features among nine six-day entries for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh on Sunday.

Sir Michael Stoute's charge, owned by the Queen, was third when sent off favourite for the Investec Derby and could be joined in the field by Ed Dunlop's Epsom fifth Native Khan.

Aidan O'Brien may have lost Recital from his team but still has four entries with Roderic O'Connor joining Epsom runner-up Treasure Beach, the fourth home Memphis Tennessee and the disappointing Seville.

Best Hello, Dunboyne Express and Notable Graduate complete the nine entries.

Paddy Power make Carlton House the 5-4 favourite and the bookmaker expects there to be plenty of takers at those odds.

Power said: "The likelihood that Carlton House is going to take part in the Irish Derby is creating a buzz around the race unlike I've ever known before.

"Considering he was sent off 5-2 favourite for the English equivalent, I could see punters really getting stuck in and possibly even going off an odds-on jolly."
