With a history dating back to 1780, the roll of honour for the Classic is studded with the names of the greatest horses to have graced the English turf.

The Investec Derby Festival also features the Investec Oaks and the Investec Coronation, also run over the Derby course of one mile, four furlongs and 10 yards, for fillies and older horses respectively.

The unbeaten Saxon Warrior heads the 14 three-year-old colts confirmed for the world's greatest Flat race, which is run over a mile and a half.

He is set to be the first odds-on favourite for the Classic since Camelot, also trained by Aidan O'Brien, won the 2012 Investec Derby at 8/13.

He finished sixth of eight in the Investec Blue Riband Trial over 10 furlongs on April 25, beaten less than five lengths, and kept on to gain third behind Qatar Racing's winner Roaring Lion (John Gosden/Oisin Murphy, 11/2) in the Dante Stakes over an extended 10 furlongs at York on May 17.
