Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup Heads Strong Supporting Card

There is a strong supporting card at Epsom Downs on Investec Derby Day, Saturday, June 2, headed by the £300,000 Group One Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (2.40pm) which takes place over the same mile and a half course as the Investec Derby for four-year-olds and upwards.

A total of nine confirmations go forward today for the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (sponsored by Investec) headed by last year’s winner St Nicholas Abbey. St Leger hero Masked Marvel, Dubai World Cup victor Monterosso, last year’s Investec Derby runner-up Treasure Beach and recent Yorkshire Cup scorer Red Cadeaux are all engaged and a cracking contest is in prospect.

Investec Derby Day is the first event of the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations and Her Majesty The Queen will be presenting the trophy to the winning connections of the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (sponsored by Investec).

The Tim Easterby-trained pair of Captain Dunne and Confessional head the 37 entries going forward for the £75,000 Investec Specialist Bank ‘Dash’ (3.15pm), run over the fastest five furlongs in the world. The pair fought out the finish in 2011, with Captain Dunne prevailing by a neck.



The going at Epsom Downs is currently:

Derby Course - Good, Good to Firm in places

5f Course - Good to Firm, Good in Places

The outlook is for conditions to stay warm up to Wednesday. There is a chance of showers on Monday evening and on Tuesday evening. Cooler, cloudier conditions with possible showers could follow thereafter.

Friday and Saturday are currently forecast to be dry.

Six millimetres of water were applied to the Hill on Monday.
