The going has changed to

in places after a dry night. It was previously Good.
Andrew Cooper, Clerk of the Course at Epsom Downs, said at 9.15am: "It has been dry overnight and I have called the going Good, Good to Firm in places, but it is very much good in the main, with just bits and pieces on the quicker side.
"The weather is overcast at the moment, but is meant to brighten up later. It is again forecast to be dry tonight, with a hot, dry day tomorrow.
"We are bound to consider watering this evening, but whether we will do or not is a decision we won't make until at some point this afternoon, which may be after racing."
