The son of Galileo was last seen in competitive action when running out a one and a half length winner of the British equivalent at Epsom.

The market leader is bidding to become Aidan O'Brien's eleventh winner in the race and just the second horse in the last 10 years to complete the Derby double.

Stablemates Battle Of Marengo and Count Of Limonade were taken out of the race on Thursday morning.

Libertarian who finished second to Ruler of The World at Epsom is next best in the market at around 7-2 while Galileo Rock, who finished a half-length back in third, is a general 7-1 chance alongside recent Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum purchase, Sugar Boy.

Trading Leather, Little White Cloud, Festive Cheer, Cap Orushes and Ralston Road complete the field.
