Recommended Bets

Back El Astronaute @ 5.24/1 in the 15:15 at Epsom
Lay Maverick Wave @ 3.814/5 in the 15:50 at Epsom
Back General Alexander each-way @ 11.010/1 in the 16:30 at Ripon

For our first selection, we head To Epsom for a positive in the 15:15 Handicap over 5f. Selection El Astronaute has seen steady support this morning backed from 7.413/2 in to 5.24/1, and in this competitive field with many with chances, the money tends be an important indicator. He caught the eye with two runner-up finishes back in May and we're happy to follow the money today.

We remain at Epsom for our negative in the 15:50 Conditions Stakes over 1m 2f. Selection Maverick Wave has been steadily drifting from 3.02/1 out to 3.814/5. He was disappointing in listed company at Ascot last time out when finishing 12th, and he's up against solid performer Fire Fighting today who was not embarrassed in a stronger Listed race at Windsor last Saturday when finishing fifth.

Over to Ripon for this afternoon's each-way selection in the 16:30 Handicap over 6f. General Alexander has proved popular with punters and is now trading at 11.010/1 from 18.5 earlier in the day. A course and distance winner here in May, if he puts in anywhere near his best work he will take the race and on this basis he looks great value in the each-way market.
