Nick Shiambouros returns with two selections from the Sunday meeting at Epsom...

"He is bred to stay further, and the extra yardage should suit this son of Pour Moi down to the ground"

Back Juanito Chico in the 14:10 at Epsom

14:10 Epsom - Juanito Chico

Juanito Chico is an interesting runner in this competitive nursery.

This gelding put in a much improved effort on his handicap debut when finishing fourth to Rajar at Newbury in July. He proved to be a real handful in the early stages, but kept on really well and finished the race with good energy.

He is bred to stay further, and the extra yardage should suit this son of Pour Moi down to the ground. I think he will go close and is fairly priced at 4.77/2 on the exchange.

Kodiac Khan appears to be the main danger. He won a similar event over this course in good style last month and looks sure to make a bold bid.

16:55 Epsom - Cape Banjo

Cape Banjo should finally open his account in this maiden.

This gelding was caught in the very last stride last time out when finishing second to Pure Fantasy in a handicap at Sandown. He looked the likely winner a furlong from home but emptied close home and had to settle for second.

I think he sets a decent standard and should prove difficult to beat. His current price of 3.1511/5 is just about right.

Squiggley is worth a mention. She hinted at ability when making her debut behind the smart Nathra last September. She obviously faced an impossible task that day, but put in some good work in the closing stages. At present she is trading at 11.010/1 on the exchange and is worth a saver.
