Stan James Bonus Code for 2012 Epsom Derby Day


 There's a lot to like about this Saturday's card at Epsom with a pair of Group 1 contests and a listed race set to unfold on what many expect to be a dramatic series of races. AP O'Brien comes in with a stack of talented selections, not the least of which is odds-on Derby favourite Camelot who seeks his second classic on the bounce.


Parish Hall was the notable recent withdrawal but punters will still find the likes of Bonfire, Astrology and Imperial Monarch. Any contender who can get the best of Camelot will certainly reward punters with a good price but it appears as though up to four other O'Brien-trained entries could wind up appearing in this one.

John Gosden saddles Thought Worthy for this contest and he could certainly emerge as a spoiler heading into the final few days of ante post action. The only real blemish on his record was a second place finish to Imperial Monach at Sandown in late April. He followed that up with a listed score over Frankel's brother Noble Mission.

Thought Worthy looks likely to improve third start off the freshening and you have to admire the ambition of connections with the spacing between his races. They clearly feel this colt is ready to fire.

Dubai World Cup champion Monterosso reppears for the first time since his dramatic moment at Meydan to tackle the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup. He'll be dealing with a number of established older horses in St Nicholas Abbey, Treasure Beach, Beaten Up and Masked Marvel.

Last year's St Leger Winner Masked Marvel didn't really fire in his first effort this year and the four-year-old son of Montjeu performed badly on debut last year but came back to win by three lengths in his next outing. He could be one to watch to outrun his odds at the very least.

A listed contest for two-year-olds is also quite appealing and there are a few coming into this one boasting undefeated records. Several step up off a maiden score while a couple of them boast some high-quality connections. This is definitely going to be a good stage to flash some signs of quality ahead of next year's three-year-old campaigns. Expect it to be a bit of a lottery but Pixilated could improve at what will be a significant price.
