14:35 Epsom - Roman Mist

15:10 Epsom - Modern News

15:45 Epsom - Live In The Dream

14:35 Epsom - Roman Mist

Was very good at Kempton when winning the Snowdrop Fillies' Stakes, and looked good over a one mile trip in the last two races at that track. She won her last race closest to this distance in Wolverhampton back in August but that was a Class 4.

I think Roman Mist is going to be way too big for this race.

15:10 Epsom - Modern News

I'm going with the market favourite Modern News to get the win. Went over to Meydan a couple of months ago and looked a bit tired on his return at Doncaster, but since then has been brilliant.

Couple of wins, back-to-back, including the Royal Windsor Stakes last time around. Charlie Appleby is going to be very confident with all his runners this weekend, but this may be one he thinks is most likely to win.

15:45 Epsom - Live In The Dream

Live In The Dream and Live In The Moment are running for the Adam West yard run in The Dash, but Live In The Dream has been a bit of star for this yard and has a brilliant chance. This race is wide open, but Live In The Dream should score.
