With five Classic races on show, the main event is no doubt the Derby itself – slap-bang in the middle of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
We are down to the final 18 horses now, after the latest set of scratchings has been revealed.
Last year’s race saw Adayar shoot to victory on odds of 16-1, much to the delight of jockey Adam Kirby and trainer Charlie Appleby.
It was the second time trainer Appleby had won in four years after Masar streaked to victory in 2018.
It had been hoped that Her Majesty the Queen would be at the Derby, but this is now thought not to be the case – instead, she’s likely to spend time with grandson Prince Harry, his wife Meghan Markle and their children, as Lilibet turns one on Saturday June 4.
Epsom Derby 2022 start time
The Epsom Derby 2022 is due to start at 4:30pm on June 4.
The first race on the card is scheduled for 2pm the same afternoon and aces will also be held on Friday June 3.
The main race featuring on Friday is the Oaks, where three-year-old fillies will compete in a Classic race of the same length as the Derby.
While the Derby can be raced by three-year-old fillies it is very rare. Instead, it is usually run by three-year-old colts. Despite this, the Derby has been won by six fillies in the past, although the last one was in 1916.
