Epsom Downs’s first meeting since the events of the Derby Festival takes place on Thursday evening, headlined by the Ladies’ Derby Handicap for amateur female riders.
Simon Hodgson’s seven-year-old was a winner at Newbury on his last start earlier this month on his second appearance of the season, and is the only one of the ten runners to have been victorious on their most recent outing.
Serena Brotherton is jocked up for the clash on the Downs, where Venetia Williams’ Natty Night carries top-weight off a mark of 80.
Andaleep has struggled since the turn of the year, beating home only three rivals in two outings, with the consistent El Conquistador looking a big player after either winning or placing on four of his last five outings.
Jim Boyle’s Beat The Heat has won five of his 16 career starts to date and is the mount of Amie Waugh in Surrey chasing a first success since November, with Natalie Parker partnering Gary Moore’s Psyche.
Party Island, Forsee, Nabhan and Devizes complete the field of 10 tackling the one-and-a-half mile trip later this week in the £10,000 contest.
