The most prestigious prize of the Flat season in Britain is galloping into sight.

The Derby at Epsom is the crown jewel of the five Classic races as the leading three-year-old colts and fillies are tested over 1m4f on the world-famous racecourse’s undulating track.

Sir Michael Stoute’s Desert Crown was the emphatic winner of last year’s renewal and the latest crop of contenders will duke it out for the £850,650 prize this summer.

You can run the rule over our antepost Derby odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
