Epsom Derby 2022: Walk Of Stars Profile

Walk Of Stars could be one of three for Appleby in the Epsom Derby
Walk Of Stars could be one of three for Appleby in the Epsom Derby

Charlie Appleby is having a stupendous season so far and has won the three Guineas available to colts across England, Ireland and France. He will bid for more Classic glory on June 4, and one of those contenders flying the Godolphin flag in the Epsom Derby is Walk Of Stars who heads to Epsom Downs on a retrieval mission after bombing out last time out behind United Nations in the Lingfield Derby Trial... 

Walk Of Stars

Sire: Dubawi

Trainer Charlie Appleby

Runs: 4

Wins: 2

It is not unheard of for a horse to be beaten in his Derby preparation before turning around his form and claiming the ultimate prize at Epsom. However, the manner in which United Nations dismissed Walk Of Stars at Lingfield means those keeping the faith in the latter named have to be of the loyal disposition. His pedigree screams Derby horse, and quotes from his trainer that he possesses the profile of last year's winner Adayar will have his supporters giddy. However, other quotes including this one: "Walk Of Stars has all the ability and possesses the engine to do something exciting. He did disappoint at Lingfield, but he was jigging about and in my view he's a work in progress." scream for caution. Additionally, Appleby is quoted as saying: "He's a big, scopey horse and Will said he thought he handled the track very well at Lingfield. He said that for a big horse he switches his leads very easily. This horse has a lot more character and is a big boy who is still immature."

Obviously connections think the world of this Dubawi colt, however whether Epsom will come a race or two too soon for him remains a pertinent question. His greenness at Lingfield was obvious and he was easily dismissed in the end by the winner. If he learns to start more alertly and settles then who knows, he could turn that form around with the O'Brien raider.

Another of the Ballydoyle clan, Stone Age, looks to be a level above though and it would take a serious step forward for Walk Of Stars to finish up ahead of him. That is without even factoring in the presence of the ultra exciting Dante winner Desert Crown, who if repeating that run will be hard to stop.

Appleby has conceded if he were a jockey and all three of his were available to ride he would not be aboard Walk Of Stars, and although this could be an exciting horse further down the line and ruling anything running from these hot connections out is foolish, others make more betting appeal at this stage.
