The first race of the afternoon on Friday from Epsom Downs is the Woodcote Conditions Stakes over 6f and we have picked out two runners that can hit the frame.
The first is the Hugo Palmer trained Balon D'Or who has been seen twice to date and holds some credible form on softer conditions and if improving for quicker ground is a serious player in this.
A winner at Musselburgh on debut over 5f when beating a next time out winner in Sergeant Wilko, with the third and fourth since franking the form aswell, he then went up in class at Chester.
Having been drawn in the car park in stall 11 he flew out and finished a narrow second behind the two talented horses for Middleham Park in Ziggy's Phoenix and Ziggy's Dream.
The way he challenged from that draw draw at Chester was eye-catching and getting extra furlong should bring more improvement.
