4:30 Derby

As Easy a value pick as you’ll see in a race like The Pentagon has an ideal profile for this race, looks to me to be a certainty to be in the first 5 here, will improve for the step up in trip and is never a 50/1 Shot. Hopefully the ground doesn’t get any softer

2.5 Points EW 50/1 365/hills/vc


3:45 Epson

Verne Castle interests me here at a huge price. He is on a great mark on turf compared to his AW mark. He looks to me to be suited by this fast 5 furlongs and 50/1 is value.

Holiday Magic ran well in this last year of a 9lbs higher mark. He has been consistent enough and the All Weather this year and has improved in his 2 turf runs since. This could be his best trip. 40/1 looks value

1 Point EW 40/1 Generally


Grandee looks a very strong stayer at this type of trip and has some very good form in Ireland of softer ground. He looks very likely to be involved in the business end here at a decent looking 28/1

I also took a little punt at 20/1 on any AOB 123 in the derby it seems too big a price. 1pt 20/1 Betvc
