Our panel looks ahead to the Epsom Classics

Chris McGrath is joined by Nancy Sexton and Charlie Gordon-Watson

Epsom racecourse stages the Derby on Saturday

With the Investec Oaks and Investec Derby fast approaching, our panel of Chris McGrath, Nancy Sexton and Charlie Gordon-Watson ran the rule over the leading contenders on Tuesday.

After reviewing her pedigree, all agreed that 1,000 Guineas second Rhododendron deserves to be hot favourite for Friday's Classic.

Gordon-Watson meanwhile recalled picking out Natavia as a foal, his client doubling his money when Juddmonte paid 600,000gns for her as a yearling.

The Derby, in contrast, looks a wide open race - so much so that both Nancy and Chris both liked the look of a 25-1 outsider.
