18:20 (Epsom) Giselles Defence

A Joe Leavy claim negates the small rise in weights Giselles Defence received for finishing second when tackling this trip at Leicester recently.

Appears to hold solid claims in the opening Betfred 'Bet Builder' Apprentice Handicap.

Daisy Roots was a good runner-up at Brighton two starts ago and must be considered on just her third outing over this distance.

Mrembo went well both starts at this venue and is nicely weighted, while Silver Nightfall could feature if ready making stable debut.


19:25 (Epsom) Mr Wagyu


Mr Wagyu hit the bar on Derby day and a return trip to Epsom for the Betfred Nifty 50 Handicap can yield compensation.

John and Sean Quinn’s admirable performer has been running consistently well so far this term, not beaten too far in any of his four starts, with his short-head Epsom defeat a particular highlight.

He has placed on each of his three Epsom starts so clearly enjoys the particular test the track poses, and his subsequent Ripon third was another good attempt. Back on the famous Downs off a reduced mark of 92, Mr Wagyu can his presence felt once more.


20:00 (Epsom) Alpen Power

Alpen Power can enjoy his moment in the spotlight in the Betfred “Pickyourpunt” Handicap.

Charlie Johnston’s three-year-old has endured some mixed fortunes so far this term, with three placed efforts interspersed with a couple of disappointing runs on ground that had a bit of cut.

His best efforts have been on the all-weather but he is on a fair mark and has a fine rider booked in Billy Loughnane.


21:00 (Epsom) Marlay Park

Course specialist Marlay Park is a four-time track and trip winner and was a good fourth in a more competitive handicap here on reappearance.

May bounce back from a below-par effort at Lingfield now revisiting this venue in the Betfred Passionate About Sport Handicap.

Justcallmepete ran well finishing fourth at York last time. Might go close off a 1lb lower mark.

Tropez Power remains a longstanding maiden on turf he cannot be ruled out after finishing third over 1m at Haydock off this mark last time.


Epsom tips in full:

EPSOM: 6.20 Giselles Defence, 6.50 Hot Cash, 7.25 Mr Wagyu, 8.00 Alpen Power, 8.30 The Conqueror, 9.00 Marlay Park
