No doubting value of Ambivalent buy.

Ambivalent 2.40 Epsom Buy at 9 on index With far less rain forecast now the chances are the ground is going to be on the fast side of good and that arguably makes Cirrus Des Aigles slightly more vulnerable.

In any case, Ambivalent appears to be underrated as she's super tough and loves fast ground despite winning the Group 2 Middleton Stakes on good to soft last time.

She set a steady pace at York and might be able to do so here, but she is versatile as far as tactics are concerned and came from off the pace when third in the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March, finishing just half a length behind Cirrus Des Aigles.

There will be no damage done if she finishes third and this race is more open than the market suggests.

Kingston Hill 4.00 Epsom Sell in match bet at 0.5 with Geoffrey Chaucer Given the way the ground was riding yesterday it's quite asurprise Kingston Hill is favourite in this match bet.

All his best form as a juvenile came on a deep surface and he appeared rushed off his feet in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket, which makes you wonder whether he'll have the pace to get a good position early.

It's also worth pointing out he has what is statistically one of the worst draws in stall two (just two winners this century in 1m4f contests featuring more than ten runners).

Geoffrey Chaucer may have won the Derrinstown on his return but for interference and, as that was his first run of the season and only third in all, he should come on a ton for it and be a big player for Ryan Moore.
