Race Preview

BLUE TRAIL has been showing some nice strong form which should put him in the picture for this one after a break of 43 days.

Refreshed and recharged after a third-place finish at Sandown on his latest, which was his handicap debut and turf debut, Blue Trail looks a good fit for this extra distance.

MR BIG STUFF is expected to put together a big run after luck wasn’t on his side at Newbury three weeks ago.

But he should have no problems with staying the trip.

He looked super keen on his reappearance at Nottingham when he moved up in distance.

SWILCAN BRIDGE is an interesting one after getting off the mark on his reappearance run back in March at Southwell.

He looked close to doubling his tally for the season when he was at Goodwood 35 days ago but was caught late.

Swilcan Bridge is 4lb out of the handicap, but worthy of a look.

WAR HORSE warrants plenty of consideration as well as he looks like a really sharp operator.

He scored a couple of weeks ago comfortably at Sandown and only gets what looks like a fair 2lb rise for his efforts.

Tip: WAR HORSE 17/2

Ones to watch: Swilcan Bridge 14/1, Blue Trail 11/2

BASHKIROVA should come on after an encouraging return a month ago, taking a runner up spot at Goodwood.

Bashkoriva went well for a long way in that contest and was only caught late on in the contest against Mrs Fitzherbert.

As a juvenile Bashkirova won her first three appearances and can kick on from that reappearance effort.

MRS FITZHERBERT is an obvious player in this contest after taking that win over Bashkirova late on at Goodwood in a Listed contest.

That was the third win for Mrs Fitzherbert in her last four runs. She rarely misses a bit and looks like an obvious contender on Saturday.

MAJESTIC GLORY gets the hood for the first time on the weekend and she is an interesting one in this.

There was winning formfrom Majestic Glory last summer and her third place on a reappearance at the Fred Darling was no disgrace.

Majestic Glory has a chance back up in distance.


Ones to watch: Bashkirova 3/1, Majestic Glory 10/1

MUTASAABEQ has kicked on well this season and picked up a winning reappearance effort in April.

He was then sent to a Group 2 at Sandown 43 days ago and would have gotten the score had luck been on his side.

Mutasaabeq had to settle for the runner up spot having not had the room to launch when he wanted to. He’s a big player.

ESCOBAR brings winning form to the table after taking a good competitive score in a York handicap a couple of weeks ago.

That was a very encouraging run and well worthy of his place back among pattern company, so he has claims.

MODERN NEWS is the other big player in this one as he arrives at Epsom seeking a hattrick.

Victories in the Spring Cup and then at Windsor last time out has seen Modern News slide back into the groove so he’s a big threat.


Ones to watch: Modern News 6/4, Escobar 16/1 e/w

Race Type: Heritage Class 2
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 20
Distance: 5f

DUSKY LORD is one of a handful with strong claims in this competitive fixture.

He took a good win on his reappearance at Newmarket three weeks ago.

He gets a 7lb hike because of that, but he’s low mileage and still with plenty of potential for a top yard.

JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE hasn’t hit the heights of dual winning 2021 campaign yet, but went well for a long way last time out.

That was in a Newmarket handicap on a 6f trip in which he was pegged back for fourth. The short trip puts his bang in the frame.

TEES SPIRIT is eyeing up a hattrick on the weekend as he has looked like a different prospect since coming back this season.

His latest two wins have been dominating ones at this trip, at Beverley and then Nottingham. Tees Spirit is up 6lb but has a big chance.

MID WINSTER is another to consider in this wide-open looking affair, as long as this doesn’t come too soon for her.

Mid Winster took a win last weekend at Catterick and came up 5lb for it. She looked in top nick getting that score, however, with potentially more to come.


Ones to watch: Dusky Lord 12/1, Stone Of Destiny 7/1

STATE OF BLISS is worth another look despite a seventh-place finish at Newmarket last time out.

That was only a week after taking a good score at Ripon, so excuses were there.

State Of Bliss is recharged after more than a month away, so has a chance.

SOLENT GATEWAY had excuses on his latest run as well, which was in the Chester Cup when he never settled.

He is a former winner at Epsom so has proven he can handle the track.

Solent Gateway needs a little bounceback, but that’s not out of the question at all.

BOSS POWER is the final shortlisted selection for this handicap as he teams up with Ryan Moore which should be positive.

Boss Power did a reasonable job at Ascot last time out, finishing in the middle of a pack in a warm contest at Ascot.

He never got the room in which to operate properly and is worth another look.

Tip: STATE OF BLISS 12/1 e/w

Ones to watch: Boss Power 7/1, Solent Gateway 6/1

Race Preview

MANY A STAR was a winner at Ascot last month under this same 7lb claimer.

So he has a reasonable chance of following up as he is moved up 6lb. Many A Star took a marked improvement in that one.

That was a commanding win which he produced and any kind of repeat performance should get him close.

BERGERAC has been consistent in defeat this season.

But he will need to snap back to form after a lesser effort at York last time out.

His form before that clearly marks him as a threat in this one, however. Bergerac was only beaten by a nose on his penultimate run.

COMMANCHE FALLS rattled the crossbar at Doncaster on his latest run and is always strong at the start of a campaign.

There were four wins for Comanche Falls last year and should be heavily involved at the front in this one.


Ones to watch: Many A Star 5/1, Bergerac 10/1
