Epsom Downs: CAPTAIN SQUARE | 6:45pm British EBF Maiden Stakes | Dom’s Pick
Race action returns to Surrey this Thursday evening with a further six contests and our team have selected our best bet of the day for the fixture at Epsom Downs.
With a solid debut under his belt at Sandown Park and representing an in-form yard, perhaps Andrew Balding’s Captain Square is the answer here under Jason Watson.
It’s yet to be seen how competitive that contest in Esher was but given the fact it was his first racecourse appearance, he ran with credit at a sizeable price and is notably shorter ahead of his reappearance this evening.
Simon & Ed Crisford’s Aswan is probably a justified favourite given that he carries more experience but he presents no real value so is readily taken on at the prices.
The chestnut, meanwhile, runs for a red-hot stable who have celebrated various wins since the weekend and is the only runner on the card for the 2020 2,000 Guineas winning connections.
