Epsom Handicap Field

The 2020 Epsom Handicap field will take to the Royal Randwick track on Saturday October 3, 2020 during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival on the same day as the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) for the Caulfield Cup types and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) for three-year-old fillies.

The 2020 Epsom Handicap nominations close in early September and attract the season’s best milers.

Following the nominations the official 2020 Epsom Handicap field is released the Tuesday of race week along with the all-important Epsom Handicap barrier draw.

2020 Epsom Handicap Final Field

The Epsom Handicap 2020 Final Field & Barrier Draw will be available for punters below once announced by Racing NSW .

The 2020 Epsom Handicap field features a quality line-up of milers including the defending champion Kolding (20) drawn wide in his bid at back-to-back wins in the event for the first time since Desert War (2004-05).

Scratchings Update: #1 Kolding (20) has come out in favour of a Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) run at the same meet. The Epsom field is down to 19 with the only emergency – #21e Just Thinkin’ also withdrawn. Waller later also withdrew #15 Reloaded (7) from the event, but still saddles-up the favourite Star Of The Seas from the inside alley.

Update: #18 Savacool (16) has also been scratched from the Epsom by Team Waller with the stable confirming the mare is in foal.
