2014 Investec Oaks at Epsom

Tomorrow afternoon at 16:00 the eyes of the racing world will be firmly fixed on Epsom.

At that time the 2014 Investec Oaks (In Memory of Sir Henry Cecil) will be off, and as ever the Oaks offers a choice lineup.

It's important to remember that this is often a strong race for horses who haven't shown much at this level previously, if at all.

Several recent winners had barely raced at Group Three level, and none of the last ten winners had run further than ten furlongs prior to their Oaks victory.

The message to take away from this is that fillies improve very rapidly, especially with the level of training and encouragement you can be sure all the Oaks entrants are getting as we speak.

Nonetheless, it'shard to look past the already established claim of Taghrooda, a classy filly who took an excellent victory at Newmarket five weeks ago.

Her form has been patchy since, but she stays well and with the ground unlikely to be soft, we definitely think she's worth a punt.

The best odds we could find were over at Stan James, who are currently offering 4/1 for the win.

Coming back to the theme of improving fillies, we think Madame Chiang is one worth watching.

She won in the Musidora last month, her second ever run after her maiden win at Yarmouth. Based on those two results she's one to watch.

It's a bit of a worry that she often relaxes her pace before the finish, which may bite her hard at Epsom, but she's definitely going to stay the distance.

We'd recommend a trip to Ladbrokes, who have her at a very decent 14/1.

Finally, our outside tip is Inchila.

She was only fourth last time out but she showed plenty of stamina, which will certainly be tested at Epsom.

She ran extremely well for most of that race and although we don't want to tempt fate, she is likely the best outside chance of a win in the Oaks lineup.

The best place to be to back her is at BoyleSports, who have her at 66/1.

Of course, at those odds, you can equally back her each way and still potentially be in with a tidy profit.

Sunday Racing Preview - Nottingham

We've got a fairly limited card for Sunday's racing, but of the four events taking place there's still plenty to enjoy.

Looking through the lists we've homed in on one race in particular, the 15:45 Racing UK Anywhere Handicap which, despite the name, is definitely taking place in Nottingham.

The firm favourite is a little-raced sprinter called Foxy Forever.

On the face of it it's a little hard to understand why everyone is backing a horse they've only seen four times in its life.

On the flip side, we can understand the allure. Foxy Forever is clearly a horse who is tricky to prepare for a race, and the fact that he's been entered at all means Michael Wigham must be confident of a result.

Given the recent success coming from his stable, and the evidence that Foxy can definitely run when he wants to, there's a good case to be made for backing him.

We're still a bit cold on him because of the lack of showings, but plenty of others are happy to look past that which is why you can find him as short as 6/4 in some places.

If you want to back him, though, we found him still out at 2/1 over at Coral.

Elsewhere in the running, we're a little more tempted by Peace Seeker.

He's won over this distance twice before although not at this track, seeming to prefer the turf of Yarmouth.

Nonetheless he's shown form just about everywhere he's raced, and he's likely to feature well here.

The big issue might be his extra weight. He's carrying 5lbs over his last race thanks to his victory, and the field here is arguably a higher class overall.

That makes it a tough call, but he's one of the strongest horses in the field and we found him offered by SkyBet at 15/2.

Those are the kind of odds we can't ignore!

Finally, we think Taurus Twins is worth a flutter.

Although his latest showing didn't impress, he's won three times already this year, and he has previous form in sprints at this track.

That poor run yesterday my well have been no more than a brief blip, and if that's the case we'd feel foolish not picking him up over at William Hill.

Their odds are some way longer than most bookies, and you can back him for the win there at a very decent 10/1.
