Derby Day Pointers & Tips

The day kicks off at Epsom at 1.35, with build up and anticipation leading up to the big race at 4 o'clock. This blog post is designed to pint you in the way of some decent bets for the day if yo are watching or even lucky enough to be there with possibly the worst of the rain now passing.

We have picked one or two horses in each race we feel may be worth a dabble as well as poitning you towards any decent bookmaker's offer that are around today and worth taking advantage of.

1.35 1m 2f 18yds Class 2 Investec Out Of The Ordinary Handicap – 


 Flippant 8/1 EW. Not one of the primary contenders you would have to say here but could slip under the radar and showed a really good attitude when winning a Chepstow maiden on return last month in heavy ground over a mile under this rider. Carries a 4lb penalty here, but with the step up in trip unlikely to be a problem looks a solid kind of EW bet.

OFFERS – Sky Bet are offering Money Back if the favourite wins the race.

2.05 6f Class 1 Investec Woodcote Stakes – 

Silk Baitha Alga 9/4. Promising debut backed up with an impressive display at Chester next time out to land some hefty bets for some punters. Ground today should be no problem and looks the lead contender again here. Bit of market support earlier today but anything above the 2/1 mark looks a fair enough price to be getting involved.

2.40 1m 4f 10yds Class 1 Investec Coronation Cup

Silk Flintshire 9/2. Favourite Cirrus Des Aigles will be hard to beat here but we think he is worth taking on today and Flintshire ticks plenty of boxes.Tailed off a little bit at the end of last season but given progressive profile had shown earlier in the year coming here on return looks a good opportunity to make his mark as a 4 year old. Plenty bookies offering money back for 2nd places and we would strongly advise using that here!
3.15 5f Class 2 Investec Specialist Bank Dash – 
Silk Elusivity 12/1 EW (5 places with Paddy Power, bet365 & Skybet).Been running well recently from this mark, including at York last time and looks well handicapped enough if putting best foot forward today.

4.00 1m 4f 10yds Class 1 Investec Derby – 


 Kingston Hill 8/1 EW (money back from Race Bets if 2nd behind any O'Brien Horse). There has been plenty of hype surrounding Australia and rightly so but he is certainly not bomb proof so we will take on with Roger Varian's representive. Ran a fair race on return in the 2000 Guineas but can be expected to improve on that now stepped up to this kind of trip.Ground no problem and looks an interesting bet at a price.

4.50 1m 4f 10yds Class 1 Investec Derby

 Dare To Achieve 6/1 EW (price taken last night to members). Our one horse we picked last night and sent out to members and put out on Twitter.

5.25 6f Class 2 Voyage By Investec Handicap – 


 Lewisham 9/1 EW.Tailed off at the end of last season but made a strong impression on return when 3rd at Thirsk for this new stable and if can build from that sits on a decent sort of mark.
