Tom Marquand, who lost the ride on Derby favourite English King to Frankie Dettori, has been booked to ride Khalifa Sat in the Epsom Classic.

Tom Marquand has been fined A$2,000 for embracing Addeybb’s groom after winning Saturday’s Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes in breach of strict coronavirus rules.
