With HRH the Queen starting the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations at the Epsom Downs she may have something more to cheer before the off of the big race. Set to Music for Bell and Hughes stands an excellent chance of providing a royal winner in 3.10 at Haydock. A hour later we are certain to see Her Majesty celebrating another classic win for the O’Briens with Camelot.
Crockford’s Dead Cert – Camelot (The Derby, Epsom)
Camelot will become legendary this afternoon in a race win that will be remembered for years. However, there will be better value on offer with Mickdaam each way.
Crockford’s Whisper – Bear Behind (3.15 Epsom)
Dascombe has been targetting this race with the pacey 3yo. He has an excellent draw but may be beaten to first place by a more experienced horse perhaps a previous course winner. He presents good each way value though.
Crockford’s gambles around the courses:
Epsom – Oxford Charley (1.35 e/w), Euxton Hall (2.05), Masked Marvel (2.40 e/w), Bear Behind (3.15 e/w), Camelot and Mickdaam (The Derby).
Beverley – Ingleby Star (4.30 e/w)
Haydock – Pistol (1.40), Montaff (2.10 e/w), Red Jazz (2.35) and Set to Music (3.10)
