Cavaleiro, a son of Tregoning’s 2006 Derby winner Sir Percy, won twice as a juvenile before finishing third to Main Sequence on his seasonal reappearance in the Group 3Derby Trial on Polytrack at Lingfield this month.
Tregoning said: “The piece of work Cavaleiro did at Lingfield on Saturday was the best bit of work he has done all year and we were very happy with that.
“I really do like him – he will stay very well and hopefully he will be able to go the pace. We can do what we want with him as he is a very straightforward ride and I imagine we will be tracking the pace – they don’t normally hang around in the Derby.
“It’s extraordinary having such a small field, possibly because people are scared of taking on Camelot, but it’s a strange year.
“It’s a huge opportunity for Hayley Turner and for everyone. I think she is very good for racing and she will give Cavaleiro a very good ride.”
Cavaleiro is around a 50-1 to 66-1 chance, and 33-1 in Paddy Power’s market without Camelot.
