Derby on TV: ITV Racing schedule and channel guide for 2023 Epsom Derby Festival

Paddy's pals have got you covered!

Epsom Derby on TV


Epsom is the setting for the next two Classics on the British racing calendar – and you can catch the Oaks and the Derby on the telly box courtesy of Paddy’s pals at ITV Racing.

Ed Chamberlin and the rest of the gang will bring you live coverage of 13 races during two days of quality action at Epsom as the leading three-year-old colts and fillies bid for their place in the history books in the feature contests.

It looks set to be a battle between Savethelastdance and Soul Sister in the Oaks on Friday before a wide-open renewal of the Derby on Saturday, which has been moved to an earlier start time to accommodate the FA Cup final.

In addition to the live coverage on the track, there will also be an hour-long edition of The Opening Show on Derby day to build the hype for the big race.

You’ll recognise some faces on the ITV Racing team as our columnists Matt Chapman and Jason Weaver are set to offer their expert eye and betting advice during the two-day fiesta.

The latest Epsom horse racing odds can be found on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise the TV schedule for the two-day meeting at Epsom is below.
