The race meeting at Epsom is a typical behind the scenes view by Knighton-Hammond. His main focus for the composition is the modes of transport and accommodation in the form of colourful caravans and a car in the foreground. As one moves into the picture towards the race circuit there is a heightened feeling of anticipation as the spectators await the horses and jockeys at the finishing post. The artist goes to the trouble of even painting in the discarded rubbish in the immediate foreground. The picture overall is colourful and lively.
