Horse Racing From Home Podcast: Epsom Derby Special!

Epsom will host this year's Derby and Oaks behind closed doors.
Epsom will host this year's Derby and Oaks behind closed doors.

Join Nick Seddon for the latest edition of the HorseRacing From Home Podcast, which looks ahead to this year’s Epsom Derby and Oaks.

Nick is joined by our resident tipster Chris Baker to preview the 2020 Epsom Derby, and he gives his views on each of the 17-runner field for this year’s classic.

The market is headed by English King at the time of writing, and Chris gives his views on the controversial decision to replace Tom Marquand with Frankie Dettori, before touching on the Aidan O’Brien battalion, which includes Vatican City, Russian Emperor and Mogul.

We also take a look at this year’s Epsom Oaks, in which the Aidan O’Brien-trained Love will be aiming to become the first filly since Minding in 2016 to follow up at Epsom after winning the Guineas. She’s an even money favourite, though last month’s Ribblesdale Stakes winner Frankly Darling is a well-fancied second favourite for John Gosden and Frankie Dettori.

There’s also some top-class racing on Sunday, which is headlined by the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse. The star attraction is the superstar mare Enable, who will be aiming to win this race for the second year running. We take a look at her opposition, and touch on just how much of an ask it will be for the six-year-old to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe for a third time in the autumn.
