Like the Derby, the Oaks is run over a distance of 1 mile 4 furlongs and 10 yards, and it always attracts a strong field of thoroughbred Oaks runners. Sponsored by Investec the race offers a generous purse of over £375,000. All runners in the Epsom Oaks are required to carry 9 stone in extra weight.

The Epsom Oak was conceived of and planned by the Earl of Derby and was first run in 1779. The Epsom Oaks is named after the Earl of Derby’s residence at Carshalton, which is some four miles away from the course. The first race was won by one of the Earl’s own horses – Bridget, See Epsom Oaks History for more.

To get a good idea of who has performed well in the lead up to the Oaks take a look at our Oaks Trial Races section, which lists the top three runners in each of the major trials.

It is vitally important that you also look at who they raced in the trial as this will put into context how well a particular horse ran.

Epsom Oaks Form Guide

Attempting to pick out the winner of the Epsom Oaks is a very tough process due to the nature of the wide open field. There are numerous factors to take into consideration and then of course there is the element of luck that can play a major part in the race. The various trials leading up to the big race give a small indication to which horses are performing to a high level and peaking at the right time.

However, many trainers like to keep the progress of their fillies quiet and therefore opt not to run in any of the tials, which adds more confusion and to an already complex matter. In our Epsom Derby Form review we analyse the horses aiming to make an impact at the Oaks and how their various preparations are going.
