The Epsom Derby is one of the most anticipated races on the flat season calendar and trainer John Gosden will be hoping to make his presence felt in the betfred.com Derby Trial Stakes at Lingfield.
Three-year-old Christopher Marlowe has won all three of his career starts and performed impressively on his last outing at Epsom, beating Future Empire by four lengths. He has a higher rating than his challengers in the race and deserves his short price spot as favourite.
Ridden by Frankie Dettori, Christopher Marlowe is priced 1.53
New Providence to Prove Worth
The Betfred Membership ‘Play Your Way’ Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes was won last year by high-priced Emerald Star and Hugo Palmer trained New Providence will hope to have the same impact.
The three-year-old finished a narrow second last time out to Osaliaat Newmarket and will hope to go one better by getting back to winning ways.
Ridden by Ryan Moore, New Providence is our best bet priced 7.00.
