Saxon Warrior is among the 14 confirmations for Saturday’s Investec Derby which will again be brought to you by the ITV Racing team.

Saxon Warrior is the star name among 14 confirmations for the Investec Derby, at Epsom, in front of the ITV Racing cameras on Saturday.
The son of Deep Impact is odds-on across the board for the premier Classic.
He extended his unbeaten record to four in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket earlier this month.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien has seven remaining entries in all as he chases a joint-record seventh Derby success.
The other Ballydoyle hopefuls are Delano Roosevelt, Kew Gardens, The Pentagon, Nelson, Rostropovich and Zabriskie.
Dermot Weld’s Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial winner Hazapour is the only other Irish-trained contender.
Meanwhile, Alpha Centauri is set to head to Royal Ascot next for the Coronation Stakes.
It comes following her victory in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday.

It gave trainer Jessica Harrington and Colm O’Donoghue their first Classic success.
Alpha Centauri could step up in distance but the Coronation, again over a mile, is seen as the logical next port of call.
It gives her the chance to go one better than last year at Royal Ascot.
She was drawn on the wrong side of the track when beaten a neck by Different League in the Albany Stakes.
Furthermore, Mick Channon is thinking of giving Dan’s Dream a mid-season break with attention switched towards an autumn campaign.
Channon was forced to full the plug on a crack at the Irish 1,000 Guineas due to a dirty scope.
However, he feels conditions at the Curragh would probably have been too quick for the Fred Darling winner.
She is now likely to be put away in the hope the ground is softer in the second half of the campaign.
