We have another great weekends racing with the highlight being the English Derby from Epsom on Sat afternoon.

Have just been waiting for the final riding arrangements, especially for the O’Brien outfit, which has 7 of the 13 strong field and SIR DRAGONET has been drawn 13!!
Hot off the press: Moore will ride Sir Dragonet and hope he does the business and maybe a small punt for the ARC around 20/1 might be worth having an early wager?

Moore also rides VERACIOUS and ZAAKI and both have good winning chances on the day.
The DASH is always an exciting event where it could be worth sticking to the seasoned campaigner DUKE OF FIRENZE sure to give you a good run at around 10/1.

The Oaks is on Friday and in an open race I am going to have an ew punt on the Haggas/Doyle combination FRANKELLINA.
We also have the Coronation Cup where Kew Gardens, Old Persian and Lah Ti Dar should treat us to an exciting trifecta.

The French Derby is run on Sunday and I will be sticking with PERSIAN KING to follow up on his 2000 gns win.

On the local front at Greyville we have a big pick carry over ( or should I say pick 5, as many will have HAWWAAM as a banker), the excellent RETURN FLIGHT is another who could be considered a banker for small perms.
We might get informed after the race if the continued flow of money for the chances of Hawwaam continues for the July, and if that will be his next mission?

We also have Royal Ascot to look forward to from the 18th to 22nd of June where we will see some young and old stars clashing.
Battaash, Phoenix of Spain, Sea of Class and Stradivarius to mention a few, unfortunately Enable will be missing Ascot to head for the Eclipse at Sandown.

I still regard the ARC as the pinnacle for the best horses and after this weekend we could see Enable, Sea of Class, Sir Dragonet and Persian King all making an appearance?

Good Punting

My favourite race of the year is the 5 furlong dash, which is the fastest of its kind in the world. Cant wait for it

Gone 14/1 with Frankelliana shitty draw but as they say if you are good enough you will win from any draw and I think that this horse is a star in the making

I like Tarnawa at a big price in the Oaks today each way.

The Coronation, I like Defoe at a big price as well each way. Nice prep, should be spot on today with a inform trainer and jockey.

Sir Dragonet looks too good in the Derby. Won’t oppose him, want to shout him home but will play a swinger with Madhmoon maybe.



Great racing, lots to look forward to. Every race is just awesome this weekend.

Racing Post

This year's Investec Derby takes place amidst a feast of top-class sporting action but bookmakers are confident the famous race will more than hold its own with punters on the day.

The Derby shares super Saturday with the all-English Champions League final, World Cup cricket and Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title fight, but it is felt that will cement the Epsom Classic’s position as the highest turnover race of the Flat season.

“The Derby may not capture the public’s imagination as it did in years gone by, but it remains the biggest betting race of the Flat season, and is third only to the Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup overall, and that will not change this year despite it being just one course in a feast of sporting action, said Coral's David Stevens.

“Far from having a negative impact on Derby turnover, being part of a super Saturday could boost interest in this year’s renewal, as it forms part of a betting bonanza, giving us the opportunity to sell the race to potential punters."

Good stuff if you backed her but Dettori didn't have the choice. The owners of Mehdaayih retained Havlin after riding her last time so Frankie had to choose Anapurna.
