Friday horse racing tips: Epsom Downs, Oaks, Friday 31 05 19

Get money back as a free bet up to £10 on the Oaks and the Derby at Epsom this weekend. Here are Tom Sutton's top tips to get you started.


We’ll start off with the Mile Handicap where I think William Haggas’ NICKLAUS  has a good each-way shout.

The four-year-old had a strong season last year with four wins from his final five and was also a decent third behind Vale Of Kent in the Qatar Handicap at Goodwood.

James Doyle was on board when he won last time out at Yarmouth and I think he can go well here.


The Coronation Cup is up next and, despite some big stars in this field, I’m going to take a chance on SALOUEN .

He always put in a real good effort in these Group 1s and was finally rewarded with his first win since September 2016 following a superb display at Ascot over What About Carlo and Barsanti.

The five-year-old almost pulled off a huge upset here last year, but was just denied by Cracksman in the closing stages.

He’s already come up against the likes of Enable, Poet’s Word and Waldgeist, so won’t be intimidated here, and, if Oisin Murphy can get him out in front, he will take some catching.


This is a really tough Oaks to call, but I think there’s more to come from FRANKELINA .

A tidy win over 1m 3f on debut at Yarmouth and was then followed by a dead-heat second to Nausha in the Group 3 Musidora Stakes.

I think the step up in trip should suit and, with our money back offer on the race, this looks a tempting price.


The final tip comes from the Surrey Stakes where I’m backing our newest Betway ambassador, Andrew Balding, to secure the win with HAPPY POWER , who he rates as his best chance of the day.

Three wins and two thirds from a possible six is a good start for the colt, with his most impressive display a five-length victory at Newbury in April.

He was a little bit off the pace in a Listed race at Haydock at the start of May but, with Silvestre De Sousa returning to saddle, he is another that looks a decent price.
