    Reducing this clip's date range, the grandstand seen in this footage was then a new structure, first used in 1927. I think the date range should be reduced to 1927-32.

    "Could be from Derby?" - certainly the footage doesn't match the footage of The Derby from 1927, 28 or 29. Perhaps it's a support race?
