Epsom Downs hosts flat action for the first time in 2021 with Tuesday afternoon’s Spring Meeting taking centre stage in midweek.
There are six races on the card, kickstarting at 1:45pm and concluding at the finale of the 4:30pm Jockey Club Thanks All Owners Handicap.
Uncle Bryn | 2:15pm Blue Riband Trial (Listed)
John Gosden has won this race four times since 2015 and now joined in force by son Thady, their Sea The Stars colt could be the one to take from this contest.Unbeaten in two starts on the all-weather, he has a rating of 92 and had little trouble defying a penalty at Wolverhampton last time out.
He makes his turf debut and is partnered by leading jockey Frankie Dettori.
Unsurprisingly, he has been a prominent figure in the betting and could be the one to beat in this Derby trial.
Blue Cup | 2:50pm City And Suburban Handicap
Ryan Moore partnered the David Menuisier trained raider to victory at Sandown last July and he gets the leg up on the French representative once again this afternoon.
He failed to meet market expectations at Deauville next time, but conditions probably weren't in his favour and better ground at this trip looks to suit.
Still relatively lightly raced for his age of 5, he's been hiked in the weights on the back of his previous Surrey success but is still unexposed at this trip and may yet have more to offer.
Noble Patron | 3:20pm Spring Meeting Novice Stakes
Simon & Ed Crisford's horses are operating at a 17% strike-rate with many running to form of late so their Sharmadal gelding may be worth chancing here.
A half brother to the Group 1 winner Pinatubo, he improved immensely from his Lingfield debut when finishing a close third at Nottingham last time out.
Clearly improving for the step up in trip, he gets plenty of weight from Silent Film and that can shift the narrative in his favour.
Coul Kat | 4:30pm Jockey Club Thanks All Owners Handicap
With the well-fancied Year Of The Dragon now a non-runner, this contest can open the door for the Coultsy three-year-old who is yet to finish outside the top two since switching up to the mile long trip.
He landed a Pontefract event on soft ground in October but does have form on a quicker surface and he may have more to offer this campaign.
A few of these rivals are unexposed but experience counts for plenty and he's taken to take the spoils in the curtain-closer.
