Chelmsford City

Going: Polytrack – Standard   First race: 4.35   Weather: Showers

6:10

Lethal Talent

Jonathan Portman

Lethal Talent has not run for a while and comes back in a tough looking race so it would be a bold shout to give her an obvious winning nod here although she will no doubt do her best and not be far away.

7:10

Quick Breath

Jonathan Portman

Quick Breath raced in a grade above his comfort zone last time and returns to his normal company so ought to give a good account of himself.

7:10

Muraahin

Jamie Osborne

7:40

Divine Connection

Jonathan Portman

Divine Connection usually puts in a good run and the same is hoped for here.

8:10

Swell Swilly

Charles Hills















Epsom

Going: Good  First race: 1.50   Weather: Showers

1:50

Twaasol

Owen Burrows

Pleased with him since his debut at Windsor. If he handles the track hopeful of a good run.

2:25

Jack’s Point

William Muir

Jack’s taking another step up after running really well in handicaps this year. He ran fantastically first time out and then another great race at Ascot earlier in the week and then well again later in the week despite it being over six-furlongs. We thought we’d step up and have a look if we can go the next level. I think it’s very competitive and we’re just going there to see which way we can go. We know he likes these types of tracks because he did very well at Goodwood. Fingers crossed we can go and run a big race.

3:00

Data Protection

William Muir

He loves Epsom and I’ve always wanted to go to 1m2f because when he won the Silver Cambridgeshire he won it so well and he’s getting to the age now where 1m2f might help him. He’s off a very light weight and he seems in good shape so he goes there with a chance.

3:00

Caradoc

Ed Walker

He is a very exciting 5 year-old and was very progressive at 4. This is his first run of the season and we are hopeful that he is on a very workable mark of 100. Physically he looks great and he has been working well at home. We are hopeful for a good run in what looks to be a competitive race.

3:00

Sherpa Trail

Ed Walker

4:55

Pyledriver

William Muir

He’s done everything we‘ve asked of him this year. This is the Derby, the best race in the world. He’s in great order and he beat some nice horses when he won at Ascot. Mogul, who finished fourth in that race is going to end up as favourite at the end of the day and he’s obviously got a brilliant trainer. Wherever he is, I think we’re going to be close to him.

4:55

English King

Ed Walker

This has been the aim for a long period of time and it is very exciting for the yard and connections to have the favourite for the Derby. In winning the Lingfield Derby Trial, he showed every attribute you would want in a Derby contender and he looks fantastic. This is a hugely exciting day for the whole team and watching him leave the yard this morning knowing that his preparation has gone smoothly, we couldn’t be happier. He is being led up by his groom and rider Matty Hicks, who has done a great job with him.

Dream Today

Jamie Osborne

5:35

Dirty Rascal

Tom Ward

Dirty Tascal has improved a lot from his first run and is ready to rock and roll. The draw is not ideal and he will need luck in running to get a good position but If he gets a clear run he should be right there on the line.

5:35

Tintoretto

Tom Ward

TIntoretto has won his last two and appears in great form. This is a big step up in grade but I hope with a bit of luck he should run very well.
