Epsom Derby: Carlton House injury shakes up betting

An injury to Carlton House has shaken up the betting for the Investec Derby this Saturday at Epsom. The Queen's horse is now vying for favouritism with Andrew Fabre's Pour Moi.

Carlton House has been confined to walking and trotting after taking a knock in a routine canter on Monday. The impressive winner of the Dante Stakes at York had been stretching away in the betting, and now awaits a canter at Newmarket Heath on Thursday before Sir Michael Stoute makes a final decision.

Ballydoyle's Recital has been cut to 11/2 from 5/1 while Native Khan, Ed Dunlop's hope, impressed in a workout on Tuesday and has received plenty of backing.
