Sherbet Lemon – 4.30 Epsom (33/1 – Various)
A large outsider in the Oaks, Sherbet Lemon could potentially produce another surprise at a big price on the Epsom Downs for Archie Watson.
The filly was the 28/1 outsider for the Listed Oaks’ Trial at Lingfield last month, but she showed a good attitude as she battled her way down the home straight to claim victory by three-quarters of a length.
The three-year-old has plenty to prove at this level and she is entitled to take a gamble in Group 1 company here.
Her pedigree does hold some proof that she could stay the distance, with her half-brother (Il Paradiso) winning a 1m4f maiden in Ireland while Abyssinian claimed two victories over 1m3f and 1m5f.
If Sherbet Lemon can cope with the step up to Group competition here, then her price of 33/1 could prove to be huge value here.
