4:30 Epson Oaks
I think there is nothing between Alluringly and Enable on their Chester running when it looked to turn into a sprint at the end which won’t have suited the O’Brien horse. I’m fairly sure she can turn the tables on that horse here at 25/1 looks a fair few points too big, especially given the dominance of Aidan O’Brien fillies on the classics this year.

Highland Reel is one of my favorite horses and he really should win this race but I can’t have any of the opponents here at the prices expect for a bit of value in US Army Ranger. I think he is comfortably the 2nd best of Aidan’s horses as Idaho should be too slow for this. He really doesn’t look to put in 100% in most of his races but ran a great race in the derby last year and if he has Highland Reel to aim at here I think he could improve.

I’m going to go for an early bet here. I think Wings of Eagles actually looked one of the best if Aiden’s in the trails and given that it was his first turn this year any normal improvement should put him in the picture. With 4 places on offer he looks value to place here.
