Epsom Derby 4.30

2 Delano Rosevelt @ 14/1 + 3 Hazapour @ 10/1 - Skybet to 4th place (prices taken to 3rd place and mailed out at 7.30pm Friday).

I think we saw in The Oaks that proven stamina is vital. I don't think it will be as soft on Saturday but still "dead holding" ground.

I cant be backing Saxon Warrior at near "evens". We tipped it in the 2000 Guineas and also the 50/1 runner up and I think that probably best sums up the form of that race e.g not convinced.

I think Roaring Lion who we also tipped in the 2000G will tur the form with Saxon Warrior but I prefer the most stamina laden profiles of HAZAPOUR and DELANO ROSEVELT. Both have form in poor Going, both have looked likely to improve for a step up to 12 Furlongs and both have stamina to justify in pedigrees. I think Young Rascal and Dee Ex Bee will be next best.
