One Horse, One Trainer, One Jockey On Day Two At Epsom

Trainer - Sir Michael Stoute

The first person to follow on Derby day at Epsom is Sir Michael Stoute who has been at the top of the sport for over 40 years and on the final day of the meeting holds many credible entries.

He had a few runners yesterday but never really threatened to go on and win any of the races but today he certainly holds two strong chances that we think are worth keeping a close eye on.

Sir Michael Stoute does not have a runner in the Epsom Derby this year but has previously won it five times in his career so he knows how to get his horses ready to handle the tricky Epsom track.

He runs Zaaki in the Group 3 Diomed Stakes in which he is the current market leader and from his seasonal debut looks the one to beat even though he steps up in Class.

He was superb over a mile on fast ground last time out and gets the same conditions at Epsom today and looks sure to go well.

The other favourite for the veteran trainer of some interest is Sextant, owned by the Queen who came close yesterday with a second in the Mile Handicap but she will be watching on at the track today cheering on this four year old.

This Gelding has a nice form line not being out of the top two on all of his runs and returned this season on his handicap debut with a flourishing win at Ascot.

Today could be Sir Michael Stoute's day.

Horse - Telecaster

The big race of the day is the Investec Derby and this is seen as one of the most prestigious flat races in Britain and the horse we think needs serious consideration for the race is the Hughie Morrison trained Telecaster.

This unexposed three year old only started his career this season and has been exceptionally progressive finishing on his debut behind British rival Bangkok but from there has been unbeaten in his last two runs.

He went to Windsor next where he bolted up by eight lengths in a Class 5 but then stepped up another level completely to win the Group 2 Dante Stakes at York to make him a serious contender in this one.

He is stepping up in trip again but from his last run it looks like it will suit and although having a tricky draw in stall 2 he is a very progressive and improving horse that holds a very strong chance.

He was supplemented for £80,000 at the last stage to enter the race which means the connections really fancy there chances of landing the Classic.

Jockey - Ryan Moore

One of the worlds leading jockeys is Ryan Moore and although it might be an obvious rider to follow on big days in the sport like Derby day but after yesterdays bad luck story he will be looking to get off the mark at Epsom.

On Friday Moore finished a narrow second in both the big Group 1s on the card with Kew Gardens getting to the front in the Coronation Cup but being pipped on he line by the Roger Varian trained Defoe.

Lightning seemed to strike twice for the Englishman as in the Classic Epsom Oaks he got Pink Dogwood to the front and she looked sure to win but Frankie Dettori and Anapurna swept passed them to land the Group 1.

Moore rides four favourites on the day with two of them being for the already mentioned Zaaki and Sextant for Sir Michael Stoute and he also has Veracious who is at the top of the market in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes for the same trainer.

He also heads the Derby field with the pick of the seven Aidan O'Brien runners and he has gone with the Impressive Sir Dragonet who will be looking to extend his unbeaten run to three races and land his first Group 1.

Moore could seriously clean up today.
