ABC GUIDES TO THE DERBY AND OAKS: It’s Derby week and every punter wants to beat the Epsom favourite. Daqman will examine all the runners – same again for the Oaks – and set you up for hot picking, as he does on a winning daily basis.


DARNATION! O’BRIEN BEATEN AGAIN

BALLYDOYLE saddled fallen angels again yesterday, as Aidan O’Brien’s Auguste Rodin was beaten in the Tattersalls Gold Cup and his 1,000 Guineas hope, Opera Singer, was muted in consecutive races on Ireland’s Classic track, the Curragh.

Star of a glittering double in Europe was a Yorkshire trainer on a day his country gave way all the top-line action to Ireland, France and Germany.

In the space of 45 minutes, Karl Burke landed both the German and Irish 1,000 Guineas with, firstly, Darnation stopping a Stan Moore outsider, the 11-2 Daqman bet, Queues Likely, in a one-two for English raiders.

Then Fallen Angel made virtually all the running at the Curragh to give him a Guineas double in a season which has produced 40 winners already in England alone for the man from Middleham Moor.

Danny Tudhope was the winning jockey on Fallen Angel whole, at Dusseldorf, connections wisely retained Afrie De Vries to catch Billy Loughnane on Queues Likely, whose front-running tactics had won the Stan Moore filly her trial for the race at Cologne.

What now for O’Brien’s City Of Troy, currently leading 74 acceptors for the Epsom Derby and likely favourite at this week’s final declaration stage?

What to expect from his first and second favourites for Friday’s Oaks, Ylang Ylang and Rubies Are Red?

CLOCKMAKER TICKS THE BOXES

⭕ 3.10 Yarmouth Bank Holiday racing usually means two things and we have ticks in both boxes today.

✅ Plenty of racing
✅ Soft ground

It’s soft ground at Yarmouth this afternoon but it’s not a bad holiday card and many will be sweet on the chances of Theory Of Tides to follow up on his Nottingham debut win.

He ran green that day and the penny only dropped late on. He was much more value than his official half length winning margin and should certainly be suited by the step up in trip and shouldn’t be inconvenienced by the softer ground.

However, as always with novice events, the quandary is whether he can give the weight away as a previous winner.

By course standards this looks an above average contest with rivals from David Simcock and the Crisford’s helping to keep Theory Of Tide’s price north on evens on Betdaq Betting Exchange .

Clockmaker (Simcock) is a serious challenger based on an excellent debut effort at Newbury when second to the ill-fated Hidden Law at Newbury.

He was readily brushed aside (five and a half lengths) by the impressive Appleby winner who sadly and tragically was fatally injured after winning the Group 3 Chester Vase on his next start.

Clockmaker’s Newbury form came in a class 2 race and this is two levels lower – I think he is a good bet to go one better in receipt of weight from the favourite and will nap him accordingly for a WIN 30 return.

Steel Tiger (Crisfords) was second here on debut, he will improve but this looks tougher.


MYSTERY SOLVED

⭕ 4.50 Yarmouth A fairly run of the mill handicap over seven furlongs closes the card with three defectors only making it marginally easier to solve.

Dion Baker runs under a 5lb penalty after a narrow win last week on Brighton in a poor race on different ground. He is surely opposable at the top of the market?

Like many in the race Beylerbeyi has run poorly when there has been give in the ground.

I’ll take a Bank Holiday flyer with Mystery Monarch who is still unexposed, the Eve Johnson Houghton stable are going well and also won this same race last year.

He ran well on good to soft at Leicester in 2021 and hasn’t been beaten far in two all-weather starts this season.

The morning offers of around 6.5 looks more than fair for a WIN 20 return.

⭕ 5.20 Leicester This looks an easy opportunity for Allonsy to get off the mark after going down by a short head when favourite at Windsor last time out.

She’s up 3lb but had the rest of the field behind fairly well strung out and is preferred to College Choir who also has Windsor form but doesn’t look quite as strong.

What are points? Points facilitate a staking plan, which is the secret to creating profit. One point is whatever you choose: a pound, a euro, or whatever ….

Start with a bank and decide how much you can afford to lose over a period of time, and determine the size of your bets accordingly. Daqman makes this variation every day.
