But with nine runners and a one-horse book, there is potentially great value to be had if you fancy an each-way bet.
Richard Fahey is clearly thrilled just to have a Derby runner but Mickdaam won’t be there to make up the numbers. He ticks a lot of boxes: he will stay, is as tough as teak and should handle the Epsom contours as he is a well balanced horse. Fahey admits he probably won’t beat Camelot but at 33/1 at the time of writing he stands out as strong each-way value.
Other pointers for tomorrow include:
Hajras (1.35pm Epsom): Progressive and looks well handicapped.
Mohedian Lady (Haydock 3.10pm): Has been working well and should step up on reappearance.
Tatlisu (1.55pm Musselburgh): Should book his Royal Ascot ticket.
Commitment (3.30pm Muselburgh): Carries plenty of stable confidence.
Deepest Blue (2pm Beverley): Worth an each-way look after an improved run last time.
This blog is taking a short break for a few days, so the best of Derby Day luck to all!
