RETURNING GLORY (2.50) can overcome top weight for Saeed Bin Suroor at Ripon.

The three-year-old has been a bit disappointing but his third to Glorious Army at Newbury last time was given a boost of sorts on Saturday when runner-up Carp Kid scored at Windsor. Returning Glory finished only a head behind Carp Kid at Newbury giving him a stone and this doesn’t look a particularly strong event.

On a busy Bank Holiday Monday the amateur riders’ Derby at Epsom can be often overlooked, with C’est No Mour bidding to repeat last year’s victory under Simon Walker. It looks a tougher renewal this year, with Jamie Codd coming over from Ireland to take the ride on John Quinn’s JE SUIS CHARLIE (3.40).

My selection can be a tricky customer but is capable on his day, especially when encountering a little juice underfoot. His fifth to Jeremiah in stronger event at Thirsk wasn’t a bad effort. Peter Chapple-Hyam has also booked a top Irish rider for Medalla De Oro, up 4lb since chasing home Maifalki at Haydock.

BATHSHEBA BAY (4.50) dug deep to win at Windsor a fortnight ago and he handled an easy surface when chasing home Dee Ex Bee at the 2017 Qatar Goodwood festival.

Locally-trained CORAZON ESPINADO (5.25) had a neck to spare over Cuban Heels when they clashed over course and distance in April. They are weighted to dead-heat but Corazon Espinado ran quite well in defeat 12 days ago and gets the nod.

At Chepstow, BANKSY’S ART (6.05) encounters a soft surface for the first time since finishing second to Victory Chime in a 17-runner contest at Goodwood in May. The handicapper has dropped Miock Channon’s gelding a couple of pounds and Scott McCullagh takes off a further 7lb.

    ETERNAL DESTINY 4.20 chep. 11/2. For me one of the biggest eye catching rides of the season. Looks a well handicapped horse. Could well have got really close to the winner which has cone out and won very easily since! Its surely worth few quid.

    KILFINICHIN BAY 5/1 3.50 cart

    2-2 at at the track off marks of 109 and 125 so off 115 today should be manageable.
    Both times Dicky Johnson was doing the steering and he travels up for just this one ride today.

        No worries didn’t fancy much over here. So nice trip across the pond brings money to our pockets ;)

        Apologies for sir billy Wright a lot of people unhappy at Chepstow today because of ground problems! Not that I’m blaming conditions for horses loss but we will see next time out, it read good to soft ;/ and it’s a bog.
