The Intelligent Punter's Guide to the 2014 Epsom Derby



The Epsom Derby, the most famous race in the British flat racing calendar, worth £782,314 to the winner, takes place at 4pm on Saturday.

The annual contest for three-year-olds, run over one mile and four furlongs, has been won down the years by such illustrious names as Hyperion, Mill Reef and the ill-fated wonder-horse Shergar, who trounced his rivals by a record ten lengths back in 1981.

There are 16 runners to choose from. What should the intelligent punter be looking for?

Brilliant .As an occasional, not very intelligent, punter this struck me as both comprehensive and insightful.
Are you going to give any help with the World Cup? Looks like Argentina at a canter to me.

Argentina and Brazil certainly the likeliest winners.
