Epsom Derby Day gets underway at 13:40pm with the Investec Handicap, formally known as the Vincent O'Brien Stakes. Run over one mile and two furlongs, this race was won last year by Pasaka Boy at odds of 25/1 for trainer Jonathan Portman.
The Listed Woodcote Stakes is second up. This six furlong sprint is a tough one to win with 3/1 chance Thunder Strike scoring here twelve months ago. The draw is vital in this ultra competitive race.
The Coronation Cup is third up and is a hotly contested Group 1 race for some of the older horses. The race was won for the third consecutive year in 2013 by favourite St Nicholas Abbey.
One of the biggest betting heats of the two day Derby meeting is the Investec 'Dash', off at 15:15pm. This five furlong sprint is a real thriller and was won in 2013 by 5/1 shot Duke Of Firenze ridden by Ryan Moore.
The highlight of the two day meeting is the Derby itself, as they come out of the gates at 16:00pm on Saturday 7th June. The race is the fourth Classic of the flat racing season and is run over one mile and four furlongs. Last year the race was won by 7/1 chance Ruler Of The World, giving trainer Aiden O'Brien a second consecutive win in the race and fourth in total.
It's a bit like after the Lord Major's show, but the Surefooted Stakes is the penultimate race of the meeting. This one mile, two fulong handicap contest was won in 2013 by Sheikhzayedroad trained by David Simcock.
Last but not least, is the Investec Handicap, formally known as the Distinctive Stakes. A six furlong handicap that rounds off the Epsom Derby meeting. Last year the race went to the 25/1 chance Arctic Feeling.
