The Epsom Derby & Oaks Online Preview
Epsom may not be to everyone’s taste but for me it has been a triumph over the years, yielding a profit to level stakes for the Online Preview every season.
This season’s first Online Preview for the Newmarket Guineas meeting found Mabs Cross 9/2, Key Victory 5/4 and Lah Ti Dar Evs and I gave strong pointers to Billesdon Brook, who was my best outsider for the 1,000 Guineas at 66/1, and Saxon Warrior, second best for the 2,000 Guineas at 3/1.
Epsom has historically been a very lucky meeting for us, and following winners at 25/1, 12/1, 7/1, 6/1 and 4/1 in 2013, I struck again with the Oaks/Derby double Taghrooda 5/1 and Australia 11/8 in 2014 and in 2015 gave Code Red 14/1, Stravagante 7/2 and Al Bandar 3/1. Last year Wings Of Eagles 40/1 was my best outsider for the Derby.
I am sure to be receiving strong news again and there is already talk of a horse for one of the handicaps.
The Epsom Derby & Oaks Online Preview is available to view on Thursday, 31 May.
I hope you will be joining me for what promises to be a great weekend.
Bye for now
