Epsom is an awkward and undulating track that has scuppered the chances of many a Derby hope over the years. Some horses respond particularly well to it’s challenges and we’ve found two such horses on Friday. Wolverhampton has a Tapeta surface and a relatively short finishing straight which certainly doesn’t suit every horse. There is one runner at the Midlands track on Friday with an excellent course record. We’ve combined these three horses into a juicy treble.

Count Otto (6-4, Betfair) certainly knows his way around and has had six starts here at Epsom. He’s a two-time course and distance winner with two seconds to his name as well. The last of those came on his penultimate start, off just a 4lb lower mark. Amanda Perrett’s charge is fine form, having won his last two and he’s entitled to make a bold bid for a hat-trick here.
Lady Percival (11-2, Betfair) has failed to finish outside of the first three in five starts at Wolverhampton. This includes three wins and two of those have come over this 1m6f trip. Hughie Morrison’s mare does have a substantial absence to overcome but she might not be fully exposed yet. Her record speaks for itself and she should go well if fit enough for the task.
Redredrobin (5-2, Betfair) has been in the form of her life this season. Malcolm Saunders’ charge has won five times in eight starts since April. She has won her last two over course and distance and will also be attempting to complete a hat-trick. Those two victories give her a perfect record here at Epsom and she’s likely to run her race once again, off a 3lb higher mark.
