Back Scotland @ 5.85/1 Epsom 14.45

Lay Dark Amber @ 5.04/1 Epsom 17.00

Back True That @ 6.611/2 Musselburgh 17.15


We start the day at Epsom for our first positive in the 14.45 Conditions Stakes, where there has been strong support for Scotland from 9.37 in to 5.85/1. Andrew Balding's colt could well be on his way to better things after coming placed at Sandown earlier this month, travelling well during the race. This 105,000gns 2-year-old by Monsun has an entry in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy and the strong market support suggests he'll be heading there next month with this race under his belt.

Staying at Epsom for our negative of the day in the 17.00 1m2f Maiden, where Dark Amber has drifted from 4.57/2 out to 5.04/1. This 3-year-old filly has shown she has ability in her only start so far, coming second at Sandown last month over 1m. However, Brendon Powell's charge was tiring near the finish, suggested today's extra two furlongs may not suit, and with strong opposition in the shape of Song And Dance Man, who has shown form over todays trip, Dark Amber looks worth opposing today.

We finish the day at Musselburgh where there's been steady support for True That, into 6.611/2 from a high of 10.519/2, in the 5f Apprentice Handicap at 17.15. Dandy Nicholls's 3-year-old is having his first run in a handicap after three maiden runs showing no real form over 6 and 7f. Today's race sees a drop in class and also a drop in trip. The money suggests this gelding by Captain Marvelous can gain his first success against today's exposed looking opposition.
