Racing UKs runner-by-runner Investec Derby guide‏

Friday 3 June 2016

After weeks of anticipation - it's here!  The Investec Derby Festival begins on Friday on Racing UK with the Group 3 Investec Diomed Stakes and the Investec Oaks. Will Aidan O’Brien’s 1,000 Guineas star, Minding, bounce back from defeat in the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas last time out to land the fillies’ Classic?

 The final two races from Epsom Downs are exclusive to Racing UK, so tune in for a total of 22 exclusive races from Epsom, Catterick, Goodwood and Market Rasen throughout the day.

The weekend’s showpiece, the Investec Derby, takes place on Saturday. The race is set to be an open affair with a field of 16 lining up. Four horses were supplemented for the race at a cost of £75,000 each, including leading fancy Wings Of Desire. Look out for the Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes on the supporting card.

You can also see a seven-race card from Musselburgh on Saturday, live and exclusive on Racing UK.

We round off the weekend’s racing both sides of the border on Sunday, with Flat cards from both Goodwood and Perth, bringing the total of exclusive races on the channel to a whopping 46 so, sit back, relax and enjoy Derby weekend on Racing UK.
