Don’t forget to click on the buttons below to make sure you are taking the best price available.
CARADOC (3.00 Epsom, 1m2f handicap)
Lightly raced for a five-year-old with just ten career starts under his belt but was improvinging rapidly at the end of last season.
Won three handicaps last year before disappointing on a Listed race on the all-weather but that run can be forgotten and better is expected on turf.
Likely to prove better than a handicapper in time and champion jockey Oisin Murphy takes the ride.
LOVE (3.40 Epsom, 1m4f Group 1)
This looks like a match between the front two in the market Love and Frankly Darling, and clear preference is for the Aidan O’brien-trained Love.
Hugely impressive when winning the 1,000 Guineas by more than four lengths, she looks to be the best three-year-old filly around at the moment.
Frankly Darling was impressive when winning the Ribblesdale and has Frankie Dettori aboard, but after the Coronavirus lockdown, let’s hope that 2020 will prove to be the summer of Love.
PYLEDRIVER (4.55 Epsom, 1m4f Group 1)
A massive field of 16 runners goes to post for the Derby and the massive pot can go the way of Pyledriver.
Hugely impressive when winning the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, it’s amazing that he is available to back at nearly three times the price of Mogul, who he beat into fourth just a fortnight ago.
That may be due to the fact that trainer William Muir is not one of racing’s most famous names and this horse would be a fair bit shorter if the name of Gosden or O’Brien featured alongside him on the racecard.
HATEYA (5.35 Epsom, 7f handicap)
Not hard to think this has been the plan for her for some time after she finished second in this race last year.
Has form figures of 23612 at the track so we know she acts really well on the course and she is just 1lb higher than when second in the contest last year.
Has run twice already since the lockdown was lifted so fitness is certainly not an issue and the form of her comeback fourth at Newmarket got seriously boosted when the winner and runner-up both went on to finish placed at Royal Ascot.
Has a big run in her and should go well.
