Epsom Derby Tips from Tom Lee
We have Tom Lee from Channel 4 Racing and RTE working with us this week and he will be putting up his selections for both days at Epsom right here for punters wanting to take advantage of. A more in depth analysis of the racing on Saturday from Tom Lee can be garnered from his full Horse Racing Tips column.
- Storm The Stars - each-way in the Derby Betting
Tom says of Storm The Stars 'He ran well in defeat when not entirely comfortable on the track when second to the re-opposing Hans Holbein in the Chester Vase, but enjoyed an inch perfect preparation for this when making all in Goodwood’s listed Cocked Hat Stakes 15 days ago.'
Derby Pointers and Trends
The Epsom Derby rarely produces a real shock as the main contenders have established themselves in the Epsom Derby ante post betting prior to the race. It is well worth noting that there have been five favourites winning the Derby since the year 2000 so punters wanting to get on the favourite should feel fairly confident of their money. In that time the biggest priced winner of the race was Sindaar in 2000 who won for John Oxx at 7/1. In 2009 we saw the brilliant Sea The Stars win as favourite at odds of 11/4 which of course now look like fantastic odds bearing in mind what he achieved the rest of the season.
There are also a few Derby Trainers well worth keeping an eye on this year who have won the race in recent years. Sir Michael Stoute won back-to-back Derby's in 2003 and 2004 with Kris Kin and North Light and of course Workforce winning in 2010. Aiden O'Brien likewise won back-to-back Derby's in 2001 and 2002 with Galileo and High Chaparral, he will be looking for another win this season with the likes of Camelot going for Ballydoyle.
