The weather may not have been kind of late but despite that, it won’t dampen the spirit this weekend which kicks off at Epsom with the Oaks and Coronation Cup. We have runner by runner previews for all of the five contests on ITV this afternoon on our ITV Racing Tips. So what’s coming up this afternoon?
Great oaks from little acorns grow
Ballydoyle dominate the Oaks field with five of the nine runners but they don’t have the favourite, she comes in the shape of Godolphin’s Wild Illusion. Despite the lack of numbers, it looks a wide open contest with the Musidora, Cheshire Oaks and Lingfield Oaks Trial winners all lining up. Our Investec Oaks Tips can help to guide you through the race, including a 12/1 selection!
John Gosden to crack open the champagne?
The first Group 1 of the day sees Cracksman in action. the four-year-old son of Frankel is already the winner of a pair of Group 1 contests as well as a third place finish in the Derby last year. Connections will be looking for another victory to build towards the Arc in the autumn. Will he be able to justify the short odds? Find out with our Coronation Cup Tips.
