    John Gosden's Roaring Lion shows Derby class with impressive victory at York

    Roaring Lion is 6-1 second favourite for the Investec Derby after tearing apart the Betfred Dante Stakes field at York but trainer John Gosden has yet to commit to running the colt at Epsom on June 2.Gosden had previously seemed to favour the 10-furlong French Derby at Chantilly on June 3, which is sponsored by the grey colt's owner Sheik Fahad.But Epsom might be hard to resist and his mind might be changed after Oisin Murphy's mount cut through his rivals before drawing four and a half lengths clear of resolute galloper Mildenberger. Roaring Lion, ridden by Oisin Murphy, triumphed ...

    Robin Goodfellow's racing tips: Best bets for Thursday, May 17

    The Qipco 2,000 Guineas form is placed under the microscope today when Roaring Lion bids to land the Dante Stakes.John Gosden’s three-year-old is a mercurial customer and although he posted a fine run to take fifth in the Newmarket Classic he is yet to convince with his attitude.In contrast, WELLS FARHH GO (York, 3.30) displayed great tenacity to land a strong renewal of the Acomb Stakes last August, overhauling the talented James Garfield in the shadows of the post to retain his unbeaten record.  Sportsmail's Robin Goodfellow provides his tips ahead of five race meetings on ThursdayTrainer Tim Easterby has ...

    Harry Angel tipped to cane Ascot rivals after comeback victory in Duke Of York Stakes

    Harry Angel blew away his opponents in the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes to tee up an attempt at cracking his Ascot hoodoo next month.The Clive Cox-trained speedster was rated the best six-furlong horse in the world last year. Every race he has contested away from Ascot, he has won.But the Godolphin-owned son of Dark Angel has been beaten in all four races he has contested at the Berkshire course. Harry Angel blew away his opponents in the Duke of York Clipper Logistics StakesThat track question mark probably explains why Adam Kirby's mount can still be backed at 5-2 ...

    Robin Goodfellow's racing tips: Best bets for Saturday, May 12

    Sabador (Ascot, nap, 4.00) can put a nightmare passage at last summer’s Royal meeting behind him with a huge performance in Saturday’s Victoria Cup.Memories of the selection’s run in the Britannia Handicap are still painfully vivid for this correspondent, as Ed Walker’s talented grey found himself shuffled to the back of the nearside pack early on, despite a smart break.In fairness to rider PJ McDonald, Sabador can be keen early on and needs settling. However, the duo saw less daylight than Dracula as the pace quickened, leaving their passage blocked from halfway. Ed Walker's talented grey Sabador can get back ...

    Saxon Warrior justified his favourite tag in the 2,000 Guineas... he simply ran away from us

    You can never say the Investec Derby is all over bar the shouting at this still early stage of the build-up but I was very impressed with 2,000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior at Newmarket.The unique challenge of Epsom's 12 undulating furlongs can throw up some strange results and some horses struggle to cope with the track but it is understandable why bookmakers make Aidan O'Brien's colt Even money favourite for the race at Epsom on June 2.Saxon Warrior's length and a half win from Tip Two Win reminded me a bit of Sea The Stars, who in 2009 used the ...
