EPSOM | Selections to consider for Thursday’s racing (07.07)



Not So Sleepy Epsom

The summer of action continues at Epsom, with another six-race card on offer at the Surrey track.

The racing kicks off at 5:53 with a 1m4f handicap and concludes at 8:23 with a 1m2f handicap.

The team have looked through the card, naming their best bets from across the contests.

Here are their selections for Thursday’s racing at Epsom.

Adayar Epsom

NAP: Prince Of Bel Lir – 7:23 Epsom (15/4 – Various)

An in-form sort from Joseph Parr’s yard, Prince Of Bel Lir could be one to side with in the Class 4 6f handicap.

The gelding has risen through the ratings as of late, jumping up 11lbs in his last four starts.

He is now at a career-high mark but he could remain competitive with a handy 5lb claimer in the saddle.

The four-year-old’s price of 15/4 looks generous here and he should come close in this company.

NB: Bonnsie – 6:23 Epsom (5/1 – William Hill)

Hailing from Jonathan Portman’s yard, Bonnsie could break her duck in the 7f maiden fillies’ stakes.

The filly finished down the field at Newbury on her debut, but it was her second start at Kempton that put some interest on her name.

The two-year-old showed remarkable improvement when front-running, just being headed in the final strides at odds of 100/1.

She can show further progress here and she could prove to be of great value at 5/1 in this contest.

Epsom Downs Racecourse Derby

LONGSHOT: Egoiste – 8:23 Epsom (22/1 – Various)

An outsider in the Class 6 1m2f handicap, Egoiste could strike on his handicap debut.

The gelding was comfortably held in his first three starts in maidens and his form isn’t ideal heading into this contest.

However, he could be at his level heading into handicaps and he is unexposed over this trip, with his furthest effort coming over a mile.

The three-year-old’s price of 22/1 could prove to be of each-way value in this contest.
