Epsom racing tips are on the cards for Friday’s selections as we warm up nicely for Saturday’s Derby.

The top fixture for Friday at the meeting is the Oaks, but there is another Group 1, the Dahlbury Coronation Cup to look forward to as well.

There are six selections that we have for Friday’s best Epsom racing tips.

We start things off with the big one for the fillies, the Oaks.

All times listed are GMT.

Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 1m 4f

Race Preview

EMILY UPJOHN is one of the leading contenders for the Oaks on Friday as she looks to extend her unbeaten career.

After winning her debut easily at Wolverhampton in November, she has made a bang on her two runs in this campaign.

She was denied a penalty to get off the mark as a 3-year-old at Sandown.

Emily Upjohn then claimed the Musidora at York by a wide margin.

TUESDAY also catches the eye in this contest and she genuinely looks the biggest threat to the favourite.

The breeding is there to suggest that she has this in her.

On her reappearance run this season, Tuesday dominated a maiden at Naas.

Place finish in the 1000 Guineas and then at the Curragh on her most recent in the Irish 1000 Guineas 12 days ago puts her right in the mix.

NASHWA is another with big claims as well after taking back to back wins this season.

She looks to have a good turn of pace about her as well.

She won by a wide margin at Haydock on her season opener, before smashing a Listed field at Newbury three weeks ago.

There are perhaps a few more questions about this distance for Nashwa than the other two mentioned, but she’s not is likely to be far away.

This is such a good field for the Oaks betting, and also worthy of mention are WITH THE MOONLIGHT who can’t be underestimated after taking the Pretty Polly at Newmarket on her return, while a place finish in the Irish 1000 Guineas gives CONCERT HALL big claims also.


Ones to watch: Tuesday 7/1, With The Moonlight 11/1

PYLEDRIVER is a big player in this one as he looks to defend his crown from last year in the Coronation Cup.

Things haven’t gone smoothly for him this season though, but he can’t be dismissed, even though this is a stronger renewal than the 2021 edition.

There was a credible fourth in the Dubai Sheema Classic on his latest appearance 69 days ago, Pyledriver not having the luck go his way.

HIGH DEFINITION should also be in this as he put the pieces together to rattle the crossbar in the Tattersalls Gold Cup 12 days ago.

He was switched to a more aggressive ride which helped massively.

He was only pegged back in the closing stages, so High Definition should be in this.

MANOBO is another with some big claims despite seeing his five-race winning streak come to an end last time out.

He was the runner up in the Dubai Gold Cup on a 2m trip 10 weeks ago, just doing too much early on.

With Manobo coming down on the trip, there is no reason why he can’t be competitive in this Epsom fixture.


Ones to watch: Pyledriver 7/4, Manobo 5/2

MOKTASAAB has some obvious strong claims in this one as he goes in search of a hattrick in current form.

He has just gone from strength to strength the last twice, taking an easy win at Goodwood on his latest run a month ago.

BAD COMPANY claimed a win on his latest run, looking as good as ever when he scored at Newmarket three weeks ago.

He also claimed a win at Sandown last summer and can make his presence felt with a positive approach.

ROYAL CHAMPION has been gelded since his last run, which results in a decent fourth at Doncaster.

He comes from a top yard and he does take a drop in class here.

Royal Champion could benefit from that and put a charge together.

LOVE IS GOLDEN warrants respect as well as he wasn’t’ too far away in his latest run at York.

He came up 1lb only from that effort which saw him take third place. Under the right tactics, he has some place claims.


Ones to watch: Royal Champion 10/1, Bad Company 14/1

EVER GIVEN looks a good fit for this one as he drops down in class from a Group 2 effort last time out.

Before that, he had taken a good win at the Ebor meeting in a valuable race and looked highly impressive for it.

Even Given should find the going easier this go around and is a big threat as he moves up in trip.

OSCULA won at last year’s meeting and is just looking for a little bit of a revival at the moment.

She was nice and consistent last summer. Her most recent run on the dirt in the Group 3 Saudi Derby Cup had excuses.

DAWN OF LIBERATION has won two of his last three runs and is well worthy of his place back at this level.

He produced a winning effort in a 1m Goodwood run a month ago on his latest effort. He can’t be counted out of this.


Ones to watch: Dawn Of Liberation 9/4, Oscula 13/8

NUVOLARI is a former course and distance winner and made a good impression at Goodwood a couple of weeks ago.

He took a fourth-place finish, battling through from some poor positioning.

There could be more to offer given his juvenile win here.

SALEYMM hasn’t gotten the win on the board this season, but has been running very well.

He will benefit from a 5lb claimer on his back for Friday’s run.

He looked in great heart with a runner up finish at Newmarket last time out and Saleymm’s form puts him right there.

TOP SECRET put together a very nice reappearance run with a second-place finish at Newbury three weeks ago in a 1m handicap.

He comes up 2lb from that effort, a win which he was only just edged out right at the line. Top Secret should be even sharper for that run.


Ones to watch: Saleymm 9/2, Nuvolari 5/1

REVICH was third on his latest run, going close at Chester four weeks ago and a little unlucky.

Revich returns at the same mark and poses a threat if he can back up that run.

There was a 1m handicap win at the end of last season and looks like a good fit.

TOTALLY CHARMING is up 4lb for a score that he took at Linfield seven weeks ago, doubling his tally for his current yard.

That was another good positive effort from him, and he should be competitive despite the rise to get in this.

SEASETT opened the season with a good winning run at Nottingham in April and put in a credible run last time out too.

He fought at York 12 days ago after being moved back up to the 1m trips.

He is worth looking at in what is a hugely competitive race.

Tip: REVICH 8/1

Ones to watch: Seasett 14/1, Totally Charming 6/1
