The greatest Flat race on the planet is upon us and Paddy’s assembled a prize panel with lightening quick reactions, fast feet and an ungodly turn of foot. You’d expect nothing less for an English Classic and our masterminds return for day 2 with some more timeless tips.
Separating the wheat from the chaff for every race at Epsom on Saturday are Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Jason Weaver, Frank Hickey and the combined boffins of Timeform. A world-class field, indeed.
There’s no non runners here just a barrage of big calls, including a selection from each for today’s big race, The Epsom Derby at 16:30. Bolshoi Ballet is rightly the big favourite but Ryan Moore’s mount gets the nod from only one of our panel in the main event, with most looking for some value elsewhere.
PUNDITS’ MOST POPULAR PICKS
PATIENT DREAM is tipped up by four or Paddy’s pals in the opener at 14:00 on Saturday. It’s only the maverick Matt Chapman who chances his arm away from Ralph Beckett’s inmate in this test over 1m2f.
POSTED is also proving popular in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at 14:35, with Mick Fitz, The Shark and Matt Chapman backing Jim Crowley’s ride. CENTURY DREAM also has a triumvirate of tippers onside with Timeform, Frank Hickey and MC YeeeHaaa on the Crisford’s charge at over 1m at 15:10.
