Visindar, trained by André Fabre, is the new favourite for the Vodafone Derby after an impressive win at Longchamp. Fabre said he would leave decisions about Epsom to his owner, the Aga Khan. 'He knows everything about the Derby and I know nothing,' Fabre said. The Aga Khan missed this faultless reappearance but spokesman Georges Rimaud said: 'Visidar beat nothing but did it very well. We are more than satisfied with his race and you couldn't have asked for more.'
