Epsom – Derby & Oaks Day 2020

In another oddity that the lockdown period has thrown up, the Epsom Derby and Oaks will this year be run on the same day – rather than across the usual two day meeting. Although some of the supporting races have been lost, Epsom have done a fantastic job at squeezing in the two classics into one card, supported by the Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes and Listed Surrey Stakes. I have four selections across the Epsom card, as well as one selection from Naas – who it must be said also stages a good card on Saturday.

The rest of the day’s action is also competitive, and I have four selections across the card.
