WATCH UNRIVALLED COVERAGE OF THE INVESTEC DERBY FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND

Thursday 1 June 2017

You can look forward to three exciting days of action coming up on Racing UK. The top-quality racing is headlined by the Investec Derby Festival which takes place on Friday and Saturday.

We are live on-air from 1pm on Friday with live coverage from Epsom Downs as the two-day Investec Derby Festival begins. You can enjoy all seven races, including the Group 1 pair of the Investec Oaks and the Investec Coronation Cup live on Racing UK in stunning HD. Rhododendron is an odds-on favourite after following Winter home in the 1000 Guineas last month. Away from the Downs we are also live from Catterick and Market Rasen, with six races from Goodwood in the evening.

Saturday's line-up begins with an extended Mark Your Card from 10am and is followed by live racing from Epsom Downs, Catterick and Market Rasen. The Investec Derby is Saturday's main event and is set to feature 19 runners, one short of its maximum field. John Gosden's Cracksman is one of the market leaders after winning the Investec Derby Trial at the course in April and beating Permian in the process. Permian has won both his outings since that race, including the Group 2 Betfred Dante.

Sunday's action starts with a trip to Sha Tin followed by an afternoon of racing from both Perth and Chantilly, which stages the Prix du Jockey Club, also known as the French Derby.
