An alarmingly rushed Derby Day form study and write up comes from a sun drenched Magaluf in Spain. The very best of my brain cells have been killed or tormented by a flurry of San Miguel pints, but the passion for racing still encourages me to look, at the very least, for value on this illustrious day.
The only race though I have a potential investment in, comes courtesy of the Epsom Dash. My brain tells me that any further involvement in the days racing could prove costly! Hopefully when back on English soil, we can regain the winning momentum and continue on our surge for profit.
3.15 - Epsom Dash Handicap (Class 2)
This often goes to an experienced type who is drawn above stall 8. It is the fastest 5f track in the country and is a severe test of speed, on the downhill slope. The Ed De Giles trained LIVING IT LARGE is aptly named considering my current location, but this was a horse I saw as a potential player before I arrived in Spain.
An ultra quick start and prominent race ride should see him go close, but a career best will be required to win this off a mark of 89. He has the potential and hopefully the current 25-1 odds can be proven to be good value each way.
