Epsom Placepot: Monday August 31

There are a few interesting handicaps at Epsom on Monday, and that is where we head for the Placepot attempt.

"Kastini handles these conditions and remains on a handy mark based on some of his earlier form..."

13:55- With favourite Rashash unproven on soft ground, it could be worth taking him on Potternello, whose sole win came with Silvestre de Sousa on-board, and he looks set to go well with the soon-to-be champion back in the saddle after a respectable second at Bath last time out.

14:30- Von Blucher sets the standard here on his debut second at Sandown, and was better than the result last time at Newmarket after being bumped a furlong out and losing his momentum, he is worth siding with for a place in what looks a moderate maiden.

15:05- Elusivity has a good record here and took a step back in the right direction on this sort of ground at Newbury, and although he remains vulnerable for win purposes, he could reach the places once again. Captain Dunne has been a credit to connections this season, recording three wins so far, and returning to the venue of his 2011 Epsom 'Dash' win, he also holds strong place claims.

15:40- There is little to split 2013 winner Fattsota and Collaboration in the market or on Ratings, and it is worth including both for Placepot purposes here, although the fact Fattsota should get an easy lead may prove decisive.

16:15- Dakota City has put in two solid efforts since being fitted with a visor on the all-weather, and he will be a danger to all here if carrying that form on to turf. Bold Runner has been consistent on the Flat this season, placing on his last three starts, and he looks set to give his running here again.

16:45- The hat-trick seeking Passover has done his winning on vastly different ground than this, and looks to be one to take on in our last leg. Kastini handles these conditions and remains on a handy mark based on some of his earlier form, he will be hard to beat if in the same mood today and looks the one to be with.

Recommendations:
13:55- 4
14:30- 9
15:05- 4,8
15:40- 2,3
16:15- 8,9
16:45- 2
= 8 lines
