Captain's Blog - Monday 27th August

I will be heading to Epsom shortly to present 's coverage from there this afternoon. I suspect my contribution to the afternoon will be minimal, which will please many, as we have two jumps meetings and two flat meetings to fit in during the afternoon.

Chris Dixon will be my guest and he will have all angles covered as ever and hopefully a few win for us to feast on this afternoon. Completing the team I give you Ollie Bell, who will be in charge in the studio. If you are not too busy this afternoon I would urge you to tune in.

My selection today is Rockinante in the 3.40 at Epsom. This horse has been dropped in grade today to try and get his career back on track. He is stepping up in trip which is a slight concern, but he meets a modest group here and is sure to be given a proper ride by Richard Hughes. By a proper ride I mean one that's patient. Not one of those so-called kick on two out enterprising rides, but rather a sit chilly and get there inside the final furlong, distributing the horses energy properly. There will be plenty of pace in the race courtesy of the hard pulling Mehdi, who is stepping up in trip, this will enable Hughes to get Rockinante settled and then produce him when it matters.

I always enjoy a trip to my old stomping ground at Epsom, there is sure to be a big crowd and a decent atmosphere. if you cannot make it join us this afternoon. I will be back tomorrow with a blog looking back at York, but for now for a bank holiday Monday, enough is enough.

All the best.

Today's Selection

3.40 Epsom: Rockinante
