Weekend Sport Preview — 2 June: Horse Racing, Tennis, F1 and Golf

Frankie Dettori at the Epsom Derby


Planned on making this a productive weekend? You might want to reassess. Here's your guide to the pick of the sport coming up, including The Epsom Derby, French Open, F1 and PGA Golf...

The Epsom Derby

How to watch: live coverage starts at 12.30pm on ITV1

Saturday will be circled in the calendars of horse-racing fans all over the country as the biggest event of the British Flat racing season, the Epsom Derby, takes place. 6/1 shot Arrest, Frankie Dettori's last Derby ride, will be a popular choice with the punters, while Military Order and Auguste Rodin will also be well-backed. At 40/1, the unbeaten Artistic Star looks a promising each-way bet.

Tennis: The French Open

How to watch: All matches are live on Eurosport and Discovery+

Having put French noses out of joint by beating local star Lucas Pouille in the second round, Britain's Cameron Norrie will achieve a career-best run at Roland Garros if he can overcome his third-round opponent, Lorenzo Musetti, on Friday. Ranked 18 in the world, just five places below Norrie, the Italian will no doubt be a tricky test. Elsewhere, two-time winner Novak Djokovic faces Spain's Davidovich Fokina, who upset the Serb at an ATP Masters event in Monaco last year, while world no.1 Carlos Alcaraz continues his title bid against Canada's Denis Shapovalov. 

In the women's draw, defending champion Iga Swiatek is on a hot run of form, having cruised through her opening matches. She's expected to be in action on Saturday along with Top-10 seeds Ons Jabeur of Tunisia and Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina.

F1: Spanish Grand Prix

How to watch: the race starts at 2pm, Sunday on Sky Sports F1

Fernando Alonso had to settle for second at last week's Monaco Grand Prix after his Aston Martin team made a pit-stop blunder, choosing to fit dry-medium tyres instead of more grippy intermediates when the rain came down on lap 54. Timing data shows the veteran could have prevented Max Verstappen from winning his fourth race of the season. But this weekend is the perfect opportunity for Alonso to right that particular wrong, as the Spanish Grand Prix takes place in front of his home fans. There would hardly be a more popular winner.

Golf: The Memorial Tournament

How to watch: there's live coverage on Sky Sports Golf across the weekend

With September's Ryder Cup coming into focus, more than individual glory is at stake for some of the world's best golfers at Ohio's Muirfield Village Gold Club this weekend. Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy will be the first names on the European teamsheet and both will fancy their chances here — especially Rahm, who won the tournament in 2020. Norway's Viktor Hovland, who finished second at the PGA Championship a fortnight ago, is another one to watch, as is England's Tyrrell Hatton, who's earned top 20 finishes in his last four tournaments. 

When it comes to the Americans, two-time Memorial Tournament winner Patrick Cantlay will take some beating on this course, while reigning champion Billy Horschel and world no.1 Scottie Scheffler will also attract plenty of interest.
