Various shots of the 1942 Derby. Brief shots of the crowd. Quick shot of King George VI's horse 'Big Game'. The horses make their way to the starting line and the race begins. Cutaways to the crowd show some spectators in uniform. 'Watling Street' ridden by Wragg comes from the outside to win the race by a neck and break the course record too.
