2024 Tattenham Handicap Preview

The finale on day one of the Epsom Derby Festival is this class two handicap that since 2018 has been open to runners aged three or older, before that it was restricted to three-year-olds only. The race is run over a distance of seven furlongs at the Epsom racecourse in June of each year.

Because of the changes to the age restrictions, please be aware of these when looking at the trends as this can have a big impact on them.
