    Epsom, Surrey

    High angle shot of the stand and the crowds milling around the race course. The competitors are seen in the paddock on parade and walking up to the start. It's a clean start as they are off. The camera tracks the race from very high up on the new stand. There is one short sequence at the track side as they take a bend and shots from the side as they cross the finish line. The winner makes his way to the winner's enclosure.
