The UK's richest evening racing meeting Matchbook Brigadier Gerard Evening returns to Sandown Park on May 24, writes Ziad Chaudry.

The highlight of this six-race card, which will be televised live on ITV4 for the very first time, is Group 3 graded Matchbook Brigadier Gerald Stakes which was won last year by Michael Stoute-trained Autocratic.

The evening also featured another Group 3 race the Henry II Stakes, which is widely regarded as a key trial for next month's Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, where Big Orange and Frankie Dettori cruised to a dominating victory twelve months ago.

Heron Stakes and National Stakes are the other listed races on May 24.

The first race commences at 6pm. Tickets are available by calling 0344 579 3012 or online at, otherwise pay at the gate.
