Sydney racing on Epsom Handicap Day kicks off at 12:20pm (AEST) and the bumper nine-race card closes at 5:25pm (AEST).

It is a massive line-up of spring features headlined by a triple shot of Group 1 racing that kicks off with the fillies facing off in Race 5 for the $500,000 Flight Stakes (1600m), where Alizee ($2.90) is tipped as the one to beat at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The meeting’s marquee race is the Group 1 $1 million Epsom Handicap (1600m) scheduled for Race 7 with 11 remaining runners after four official scratchings including the rails-drawn mare Egg Tart.

Updated Epsom Handicap odds have the veteran Happy Clapper ($2.80) as the one to beat in the dwindling line-up after the good second to Winx last start in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m).

Group 1 racing rounds out with the $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m) running as the penultimate event, two scratchings from the mile and a half event leaving 10 gallopers including the firming Chris Waller-trained favourite Life Less Ordinary ($4.20).
