In recent years, Epsom Derby winners have rarely ran in the King George in the same year as that Classic success. You have to go all the way back to Galileo in 2001 to find the last successful attempt at pulling off the Epsom-Ascot double. Anthony Van Dyck is this year’s Epsom hero, who goes to the King George looking to give Aidan O’Brien a fifth win in the race.
