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.
