Epsom Derby start time: When does Saturday’s feature race get underway?

The Epsom Derby may be a month late... but the wait is finally over.


It’s going to be a bumper Derby Day at Epsom, even if no racegoers are there to watch because of the pesky global pandemic that continues to blight all of our lives. But, at the belated time of 16.55 on the 4th of July, the 2020 Investec Derby will finally be run.

There’s plenty of other races scheduled for the big day and with everything still a little skew-whiff, we thought we’d better give you the heads up about what time each and every race is starting at Epsom on Saturday.

We’ve got 7 races in total including two Group 1 contests, the 15.40 Investec Oaks and, of course, the Derby at 16.55. The action kicks off at 13.50 and goes throughout the day until the final race at 17.35. Here’s the full card.
