The feature race of the afternoon and arguably the season is the Group One Epsom Derby over 1m4f and with a special field going to post we have picked out a win and each way selection.
The win pick is the Charlie Appleby trained Military Order who has done nothing wrong this season and having proved he stays the trip he is our stand out selection.
Seen four times to date, the full brother to Derby winner Adayar who won this event in 2021, Military Order was fourth of 10 on debut at Newmarket learning plenty for the experience.
Stepped up to a mile for his second event as a juvenile he got off the mark in good style beating stable mate Ancient Rules by just under a length.
Stepped up again in trip for his seasonal debut this term over 1m2f at Newbury, he looked a class apart when bolting up by four lengths under a penalty.
He went up again to 1m4f when last seen at Lingfield in the Listed Derby Trial and from his pedigree the trip was always going to suit and the further he went the better he became winning stylishly in the end to take the race.
We have not hit the ceiling with this horse yet and he has plenty going for him to take this Classic.
