Thursday saw not the ideal build up to the big Classic race of the year at Epsom Downs as the Draw details were released wrongly to the public for the Epsom Derby and compared to many other top Group 1 contests, where the horse starts off the 1 mile 4f contest is crucial at the tricky track.

The error was made by racing's administrators Weatherby's as information was generated at 10:30am following the final declaration stage for Saturday's feature contest.

The actual draw took place at 11am at in a ceremony Epsom racecourse giving the true draw allocations to the 13 runners but this lead to confusion in the racing world with the public not knowing what to believe.

A number off different website using the official feed put it out across their brands before the initial mistake was put right, some of these sites are known for being reliable which makes the mix up even more of a nightmare for punters.

(Credit Racing Post) A spokesman for Weatherbys said: "The draw is an automated process which is generated in parallel with final declarations being processed. 

"This automated draw should have been suppressed for the Derby as a random ballot for this race was taking place on course under the supervision of a BHA official."

As mentioned before Epsom racecourse is known as not being the most straight forward of tracks and for the horses drawn in the lower numbered stalls it is normally seen as a disadvantage and has a clear effect on how the betting shapes up before the Classic.

Although, Ladbrokes' head of PR Nicola McGeady said: "The draw didn't cause much drama in the office or affect the betting. As it was rectified so quickly, we didn't have the chance to make any significant changes to the betting."

In the Epsom Derby, which is Britain's most prestigious flat race during the season, it has never seen a horse win form stall 2 where the bright Telecaster for trainer Hughie Morrison will come out of on Saturday.

The higher numbers are seen as the best place to be but funnily enough not for stall 11 as there has never been a winner from this position.
