Epsom 3.05 (Great Metropolitan) tips - Agent makes serious appeal with champion jockey booked

Silvestre De Sousa

Derby Trial fancy Claudio Monteverdi is not much of a price, admittedly, but the day’s other two selections are and the Ali Stronge-trained AGENT GIBBS is a very tasty 12/1 in the Great Metropolitan Handicap over an extended 1m4f (3.05pm). That trip looks ideal for the four-year-old who found 1m6f stretching his stamina at Wolverhampton last time, having been given his usual positive ride, and would have needed the run (his first since last October) besides. He should come on plenty for it.

A progressive handicapper last season when he won four times in a period of a little over two months, he has the scope to keep on improving this term and this is very much his trip, with his handicap record over 1m2f-1m4f reading 1111 (4-4). Even more eye-catching is the booking of Silvestre De Sousa to ride as the Brazilian is 2-2 on him and 100% on all the stable runners.
