Touting The Derby

The Tout’s tips for The Investec Derby on Epsom Downs

 

The best test of speed and stamina that exists for the modern thoroughbred takes place on Friday and Saturday this week on the downs at Epsom.

On Friday, it is the girls’ chance to shine and here we go for a real sparkler in the shape of Diamondsandrubies trained by Aiden O’Brien. She was the winner of her trial at Chester in impressive style and given the race is wide open this year, this filly has a very clear chance at the rewarding odds of 9/1.

 

On Saturday, the colts take centre stage and here The Tout has total confidence that Golden Horn will sail to victory as the favourite at a very fair price of 2/1. We also favour our tip from one month ago and that is Jack Hobbs to run into second place for an incredible one-two for the experienced trainer John Gosden.

 

Enjoy this wonderful race. The Tout has already upended a bottle of Leovill Barton to make the afternoon even better.
