Gosden's Crossed Baton can pass trial test at Epsom

Crossed Baton: showed his tenacity when winning at Kempton last time
1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Crossed Baton (2.45 Epsom, nap)

John Gosden has a fine record in this Derby trial and is fancied to extend his good run with this son of Dansili, who put up a most resilient performance to score on his return at Kempton last month. The three-year-old has since impressed on the Al Bahathri.

Others to follow
Epsom 2.10 Compas Scoobie, 3.20 Royal Line, 3.55 Dubai Horizon, 4.25 Mokhles, 5.00 Delsheer.
Catterick 3.00 Talaaqy, 4.35 Two Seas.
Lingfield 4.50 Light Relief, 5.55 Tawaafoq, 6.55 My Target, 7.25 Emblazoned, 7.55 Speculator

Lambourn: James Burn

Shabbah (3.20 Epsom, nap)
 
Has more to offer over 1m4f and well regarded by trainer Joe Tuite, who clearly means business booking Ryan Moore, who will know the five-year-old well from his days at Sir Michael Stoute's.

Others to follow
Catterick 4.35 Royal.
Epsom 2.45 Simpson, 3.55 Contango, 5.00 Cuban Heel.
Lingfield 4.50 Kath's Lustre, 5.20 Black Sails, 6.25 Caspar The Cub, 6.55 Chevallier, 7.25 Bin Daahir.
Taunton 5.45 Don't Ask, 6.15 Charlie Papa Lima, 6.45 Tangoed.

North: Colin Russell

Dee Ex Bee (2.45 Epsom, nap)
 
Smart juvenile who won two of his five races including a conditions events over 1m½f on this track. This step up in trip is sure to suit, and with the ground no problem, is fancied to make a winning reappearance.
 
Others to follow
Catterick 1.50 Dapper Man, 2.25 Sir Derrick, 3.30 Bit Of A Quirke, 4.05 Wishing Well, 4.35 Rickyroadboy, 5.10 Magical Effect, 5.40 Someone Exciting.

Perth 1.30 Lovely Schtuff, 2.00 Princess Mononoke, 2.35 Knockrobin, 3.10 Chidswell, 3.45 Late Date, 4.15 Rainy City, 4.45 Morning With Ivan.

West Country: Andrew King

Cockney Wren (5.15 Taunton, nap)
 
Not been seen since a short-priced favourite when beaten at Ludlow back in November. Has undergone wind surgery since and expected to go well.
 
Others to follow
Taunton 5.45 Darcy Ward, 6.15 Darloa, 6.45 Lubatic, 7.10 Anndarrow 7.40 Redmond 8.10 Southfield Torr.

Racing Post Ratings: Steve Mason

Bennachie (7.40 Taunton, nap)

Well treated on the best of his old form and should be hard to beat off the same mark as when scoring in good fashion at Plumpton last week.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Christopher Wood (5.00 Epsom)
 
Finished an encouraging second on his seasonal return at Newmarket six days ago and may deservedly go one better.

Longshot: Ed Quigley

Demi Sang (6.40 Punchestown)

Things didn't go to plan at Cheltenham last time out, but remains unexposed and should have more to offer in a wide-open race.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Next Destination (4.55 Punchestown)

The step up to three miles should suit Next Destination who finished off well when third in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham last month. Already a Grade 1 winner over two and a half miles, he gets the vote to score for Paul Townend and Willie Mullins.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

Robin Dickin's last four chasers to head to Taunton have all won. Bally Lagan, responsible for a couple of those wins, tries to keep that streak going in the 7.40.
