TODAY'S LUCKY 15
LORD CAPRIO 2.40 – Hexham 11/4 – LORD CAPRIO has a solid C&D record and added to his tally at Sedgefield in November. He looks well to go one better than last time which was a creditable second again over C&D 18 days ago.
MODERN NEWS 3.10 EPSOM 11/8 – MODERN NEWS won four of his first six career starts and arrives here chasing a hat-trick of wins for Charlie Appleby. Seventh in the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster on his return from Meydan where he’d finished third in a Listed race he has since struck back-to-back victories at Newbury and Windsor latest, beating Tempus readily by four lengths.
That performance arguably sets the standard and the Shamardal gelding has previous course form to call upon having finished runner-up here a couple of seasons ago. He’s still lightly raced and William Buick seemingly prefers him over the other Godolphin runner; a big run wouldn’t be a surprise and he can get back to winning ways here.
SINGING BANJOY 3.35 – Tramore 7/2 – SINGING BANJO ran well in 2 cross-country events last month and back handicapping from a favourable mark, he's an obvious choice against some suspect opposition.
NATIONS PRIDE 4.30 EPSOM 6/1 – NATIONS PRIDE can land back-to-back Epsom Derby victories for Godolphin and the Teofilo colt ought to relish this extra distance. Already 4-5 in his career with two wins on the all-weather and two on turf which include a valuable race at Meydan he stepped up back on these shores to rout opposition in a Listed contest at Newmarket, beating Hoo Ya Mal by seven lengths and barely breaking sweat.
That runner-up boasted some solid previous form, finishing third in the Craven and the performance hinted at even better to come given how impressive the Godolphin runner was in that romp where he took up the running two furlongs out before easily coming clear.
Ground conditions ought to hold no fears and he should have little issues with the longer trip which can bring about further improvement so every chance he can strike again and extend his winning run while giving Godolphin another Classic success.

THEGREATESTSHOWMAN 3.45 EPSOM 14/1 each way –
THEGREATESTSHOWMAN might prove the answer to a very tricky puzzle given he boasts some course and distance form and Amy Murphy’s charge arrives in decent heart after a couple of good runs this term.
A winner on the all-weather at Wolverhampton last October the Equiano gelding showed the benefit of his return to action to chase home Mokaatil over course and distance in April, beaten just over one length and giving the winner 2lbs after jockey claims. He’s better off at the weights with that rival and he posted another good run when last seen at Newmarket, not beaten far behind a subsequent winner while also having a next-time winner behind him.
Despite holding his form quite well at present he’s dropped to his last winning mark – albeit from the all-weather – but he’s shown he can be competitive from higher and he’s run well on soft ground in the past. Assuming his high draw doesn’t prove too much of a negative then he can make his presence felt
