Anthony Van Dyck
Rating:
Form:111239-1 (T: A P O'Brien/ J: S Heffernan) Age: 3 Weight: 9st
Put up a host of decent efforts in Group company last season, but propelled into Derby picture with a taking win in the Lingfield Derby Trial. Will relish the trip at Epsom, and has to be one of the primary shots fired from the O'Brien gun. Drawn 7.

Circus Maximus
Rating:
Form:5134-1 (T: A P O'Brien/ J: F Dettori) Age: 3 Weight: 9st
Fourth in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity at Doncaster last season, but impressed when winning the Dee Stakes at Chester on his first start this campaign. One of the less talked about Aidan O'Brien runners, but has the qualities to figure in a Derby. Drawn 5.

Madhmoon
Rating:
Form:11-24 (T: K Prendergast/ J: C Hayes) Age: 3 Weight: 9st
Beat Broome in a Group 2 juvenile contest last season, but has failed to get his head in front this season. Fourth in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, this Dawn Approach colt will relish the step up in trip and has to be respected, but may find it a little hot this company. Drawn 6.

Rating:
Form:711-4 (T: A P O'Brien/ J: W Lordan) Age: 3 Weight: 9st
Won the Group 2 Beresford Stakes as a two-year-old, but failed to land a blow when fourth to Telecaster in the Dante. Is better than that York run, so isn't one you can write off easily for the O'Brien yard. Drawn 11.

Line Of Duty
Rating:
Form:22111-7 (T: C Appleby/ J: J Doyle) Age: 3 Weight: 9st
A fine two-year-old campaign ended with victory in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf, but he has failed to kick on this season. Beaten 11 lengths by Telecaster in the Dante, so has it all to do to turn that form around in the Investec Derby. Drawn 1.

Humanitarian
Rating:

A winner at Salisbury on his sole start this season, this son of Noble Mission could shape into a smart performer, but this Group 1 level should prove too much for him. Drawn 9.

Rating:
Form:56143-23 (T: A P O'Brien/ J: P Beggy) Age: 3 Weight: 9st 3lbs
Has finished behind Broome in both the Ballysax and Derrinstown this season, so will need to improve significantly to turn the form around with his stablemate, and it's hard to see him do that here. Drawn 4.
