Fifteen runners and riders lined up at Epsom this afternoon for the Tompkins and May Amateur Derby in only its second year of running as a true amateur Derby open to all amateur gentlemen riders which provided a vintage race.

Many congratulations to Phil Collington and Lucinda Featherstone on their great victory with Maybe I Wont.  Phil, along with the other eventual placed horses, played a waiting game and tracked the front runners until turning for home.

Pictured (top) rounding Tattenham Corner, Phil (on the outside in maroon and white) bides his time to come with a run and storm clear in the last few strides to win, giving trainer Lucinda Featherstone a memorable 1-2 with stablemate¬†Arashi 2nd ridden by her son Jonathon, and King’s Masque and Robert Williams in 3rd.
