Epsom Derby Tips

Yesterday Nick got Volume placed in the Oaks, hopefully you got the 20/1 that was available all week because come race time she was backed from 16/1 into 9/1.

Intimal shortened from 10's in the morning to 8/1 and Madame Chiang from 16's into 9/1.

BTW I've just been looking through the various tips I get each morning and I see that Hawkeye have tipped a 50/1 and a 66/1 shot at Epsom this afternoon 😮

Today we'll recap Nick's Derby selections.

Geoffrey Chaucer is second favourite having been backed in from 12s to around 7s (Now 11/1). He was unlucky in the Leopardstown trial and was eased down into 3rd after being squeezed for room.

That was over 1m 2f and he appears versatile ground-wise. I think the money coming for him is significant and I’d be delighted to see Ryan Moore (Ryan rides) on board. The 8/1 with PaddyPower looks a solid bet and with only 3 runs under his belt there is surely more to come.

Of the remainder, Aiden O’Brien’s Orchestra is interesting after overcoming greenness to win the Chester Vase over the exact same trip as the Derby. After just 3 runs he is open to plenty of improvement and he showed that day that a mile and a half is within his reach.
