The past performances will EVENTUALLY show up on this page but I find it's not updated daily, seems whoever handles it only looks at it every 2-3 days.  Since the Derby is on Saturday the free PP's should be there no later than Thursday. Just keep checking until you see Saturday June 5 in there.  Oh yes the Epsom Oaks card is on Friday June 4.

Final field of 12 for the Derby.Bolshoi Ballet is the only Aiden entry.I agree with you on Hurricane Lane.With no rabbits entered by Aiden,the early pace might not be too quick,which should help Hurricane Lane.I am not a huge Ryan Moore fan but Bolshoi should crack the top 3.I will also use One Ruler

Glad to see that O'Brien's entries were pared down.  

Hurricane Lane is holding at 9-1 over on OddChecker.  That's a good price for that horse.  I would still take him at 5-1.

I don't get why Mac Swiney is getting so much play, stretching out and if his in/out career pattern holds, due for a clunker.  Maybe the punters are betting Dettori?

I think I'll keep it simple & back Hurricane for the win at 5-1 or higher.  Otherwise, I'll just watch.

Of course, the chalk would be no surprise.  

Good luck, Ger.

There is an interesting article in Bloodhorse about “the speed gene”.Sounds a little like dosage and it seems to be why Bolger thinks the distance will suit Mac Swiney.Ground could be a little quick for him

The Oaks looks to be a great race as well.I like Zeyaadah in there.Looks like too much too soon for Santa Barbara.Divinely has been taking money in the last week but Willow might end up being the strongest of Aiden’s.

Best of luck with your bets Steve

Does look like a nice edition of the race.

I think your pick is live & offering some value.

Saffron Beach is interesting to me.  Another stretchout on a 3rd back effort with competitive RPR.

I would need the full 11-1 or higher to put a flyer down on her.  20-1 would be better!  :)

I think she could finish third.Could get a little weary in the last furlong but worth a shot,especially if the price drifts up

Galileo top and bottom.

 

I knew Galileo’s offspring had been really successful in this race in recent years and thought I would check out some recent winners’ pedigrees.  The last 10 winners all came from the Northern Dancer sireline, 5 via Galileo, 3 from a different Sadlers Wells, and 2 from Green Desert (Danzig), but only with a RAN in the bmsireline.  You have to go back 11 years to find a winner not from the ND line and guess who is in the bmsireline?  Sadlers Wells lol.
