Epsom Downs: HESPERIS | 8:40pm Burgh Heath Handicap | Dom’s Pick
The first slice of action at Epsom Downs since the events of the Derby Festival takes place on Thursday evening and our team have selected our best bet of the day.
Having just one runner on the card in the finale, that may bode well for Hughie Morrison’s Hesperis who shed her maiden tag at Great Yarmouth last month.
She was second past the post but awarded the contest due to an interference, but proved a switch to handicap company worked the oracle when improving hugely on what she’d shown before.
Up 4lbs in the weights, Kieran Shoemark takes the ride and a further step up in trip is sure to unlock more improvement in the Dubawi filly and she’s still very unexposed compared to many of her rivals in this sphere.
