Whale Insight for the Epsom Derby

For those looking for some tips for picking the top-notch horse in this year’s Epsom Derby, here is what we are going with. Starting it off comes Japan, Broome, and Too Darn Hot. These picks hold some of the strongest odds to the better looking for a more comfortable decision. Our underdog selections bearing the best return is Mount Everest, Magna Grecia, and Circus Maximus.Japan is our top pick merely because the three-year-old bay colt has appeared in three races and has come up victorious in two, the prediction is that number three will come in Surrey. Broome comes not too far behind because the colt is in phenomenal shape, after winning at P.W McGrath Memorial Ballysax Stakes. Mount Everest draws attention as a contending underdog due to a recent close ending with a top horse, Colt, at Naas. Mount Everest has shown potential, and this derby is the time to prove it. Look for these young colts to outperform the expected this June at Epsom Downs.
