Horse Racing Tips For Epsom Racecourse

Today's betting tips for races taking place at Epsom Racecourse. Includes the latest weather & going reports, course maps, contact & address details and more.

Epsom Racecourse is located in Surrey and best known for hosting the Epsom Derby and The Oaks.

The course has a capacity of 130,000 which is mainly due to people being able to view the races from the Epsom Downs Hill which is a free area around the centre of the racecourse that is not ticketed and popular with people who bring along picnics to enjoy a day out at the races.

Epsom Racecourse

Epsom Racecourse can be quite testing due to the sharp descents and stiff uphill climbs.

It is left-handed and somewhat unusual in that it is a ‘U’ shape rather than an oval or circle that is more commonly seen.

As well as the ‘U’ shaped course, there is a five-furlong straight course that is predominantly downhill and the fastest of its kind in the world.

Epsom Feature Races

The highlight of the racing calendar at Epsom is the Epsom Derby which is run on the first Saturday in June. It is the most prestigious of the five Classics that include the 2,000 Guineas Stakes and the 1,000 Guineas Stakes at Newmarket, the St Leger Stakes at Doncaster and The Oaks which is also at Epsom. It is also Britain’s richest flat horse race.

Lester Piggott is the leading jockey in the Derby having achieved nine victories between 1954 and 1983.

The Oaks is another major race that is held at Epsom in late May/early June. It is the second-oldest of the five Classics only to the St Leger and attracts huge crowds on the day.
