Odds quoted on the widget are Future Racing/Antepost prices which means that if your selection does not run in the race for whatever reason – you will lose your stake under traditional Antepost rules.
Ahead of the action at Epsom, champion jumps jockey turned TV pundit Ruby Walsh and top trader Frank Hickey looked ahead to the Derby, Oaks and Coronation Cup on the latest edition of Paddy Power’s From The Horse’s Mouth podcast.
You can listen to all their tips and previews below.
Armory might run and he’s looked impressive but Al Aasy looks a different horse this year. It wasn’t the strongest Group 3 he won at Newbury in April and you could have put it down to a weak field, but he did it again in May when carrying a penalty in another Group 3.
We know William Haggas has a really high opinion of him and Al Aasy looks like he’s realising that potential now. As good as some of Aidan O’Brien’s horses are, Al Aasy is going places. He could win a couple of Group 1’s this year.
If Love turned up, it would make it a very interesting race. She skipped the Tattersalls Gold Cup and if she runs, she would cause Al Aasy problems. The whole market would flip if she was declared. I’d be surprised if she didn’t go off favourite if she runs in this race.
For that reason, I’d be taking the punt on Love now because if she runs, she will be shorter on the day.
You’ve got to ask yourself, where does Love go if she doesn’t run in the Coronation Cup? She’s not going to drop back to a mile for the Queen Anne Stakes, she’s not going to run in the Price of Wales’ Stakes. It makes sense to run her at Epsom in little over a week.
