SIMON NOTT: Epsom Saturday Off Course Report

3:40 – Investec Oaks (Fillies’ Group 1) (Class 1) (3YO only) 1m 4f

The Oaks and the Derby on the same day promised a Saturday afternoon of spirited betting, First up the Oaks which saw plenty of money for the favourite Love including bets we can give you, £24,000 – £20,000, £11,000 -£10000, £6000 – £5000, £15,000 -£12,000 topped up by several grand and two grand bets. There were fortunes in smaller sums which accumulatively made the race an absolute disaster with no chance from a long way out.

Love ridden by jockey Ryan Moore wins the Investec Oaks at Epsom Racecourse.

4:55 – Investec Derby (Group 1) (Class 1) (3YO only) 1m 4f

The Derby on the other hand was a cracking result with Serpentine making all to win at 25/1, that despite Bill Esdaile tipping the winner in the ‘Zoom Room’,

Bets included Mogul £28,000 – £3500, Vatican City £20,000 -£2000 each-way, £16,500 -£1500 each-way, Kameko £6000 – £2000, £6666 -£2000, £8000 – £2000, English King £9000 – £3000 x2 £6666 – £2000, £6666 – £2000 each-way, £4000 – £1000, £3500 – £1000, Highland Chief £16,000 – £1000, Russian Emperor £12,000 – £2000 all of which stayed in the hod.
