Gloria Hunniford visits the Epsom Downs to bring you all the colour and excitement of one of the major sporting events of the year.
The Derby is an elusive prize; so elusive that neither England's top trainer, Henry Cecil , nor Champion Jockey, Steve Cauthen , have ever had a winner. Perhaps their luck will change today with Slip Anchor. Or will Shadeed, son of the great Nijinski, follow up his Guineas win? Join Gloria for the answers and the best of Radio 2 music.
