When is the Derby 2024? Epsom date, start time, runners and betting



The Derby at Epsom is the biggest race of the Flat season in Britain as the leading middle-distance three-year-olds bid to win the stallion-making contest.

It is the fourth Classic on the British calendar and typically features a big field of runners slugging it out over 12 furlongs on Epsom’s iconic and testing track.

Auguste Rodin justified the hype in last season’s renewal to reel in subsequent Group 1 winner King Of Steel in a thrilling finish. A new year means a new name will be added to the illustrious honours list.

You can run the rule over our Derby odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

City Of Troy

Derby 2024 betting

Derby odds are on and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

City Of Troy is the favourite with Paddy Power for the Derby after an unbeaten juvenile campaign before flopping in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Ambiente Friendly is next in the early betting after an impressive victory in the Lingfield Derby Trial Stakes.

Los Angeles is also prominent in our antepost market after landing the Leopardstown Derby Trial Stakes on seasonal reappearance.

*Odds quoted on the widget are Future Racing / Antepost prices which means that if your selection does not run in the race for whatever reason – you will lose your stake under traditional Antepost rules
