Think you know everything there is to know about the Derby? Test your knowledge of the great race with our Epsom Derby quiz!

One of the highlights of the British sporting calendar, the Derby takes place on Saturday, all be it under unusual circumstances.

On a normal year, spectators would be packed into the grandstands with thousands more gathering for free on the infield, trying their best to get a glimpse of the action. But the 241st running of the Derby will be staged behind-closed-doors and a month later than scheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Although the day will feel a bit different with no crowds, we’re just glad that it gets to go ahead! And to mark the occasion, we thought we would test your knowledge of the Derby with a quiz…

Britain’s most valuable race with a prize pot of more than £1.5m, the Derby has an equally rich history spanning over 200 years, so don’t be surprised if you come unstuck. Let us know how you get on by tweeting us @BetConnect!
