Ever since his sparkling victory in the trial at Leopardstown, Bolshoi Ballet has sat atop the Epsom Derby market. After Aidan O'Brien confirmed he would be the sole Ballydoyle representative in this year's Classic, a fresh wave of support has come for Bolshoi Ballet, and he could go off as the even money favourite come the time of the race.

Mohaafeth isn't without supporters and came out of the draw reasonable well, having been placed in stall four. John Leeper has also been supported in recent days, and he'll be ridden by Frankie Dettori.

Hurricane Lane is one of three entries for Charlie Appleby. One Ruler and Adayar will also carry the flag of Godolphin into battle.

Mac Swiney will be for a Classic double, after winning the Irish 2000 Guineas on his last start. The third and final Irish raider in this year's race is Southern Lights, who runs for Joseph O'Brien.

Roger Varian has confirmed Third Realm in the final field. Youth Spirit and Gear Up will also run. Richard Hannon's maiden Mojo Star rounds off the Epsom Derby field.
