John Gosden is set to fire his two big guns at the Investec Derby after expressing satisfaction with Golden Horn and Jack Hobbs following the Breakfast With The Stars morning at Epsom.

Golden Horn rocketed to the top of ante-post lists for the mile-and-a-half Classic with a brilliant display in the Dante at York earlier this month, beating his stable companion Jack Hobbs into second.

The Clarehaven pair will clash again on 6 June after handling the contours with aplomb, with only unsuitably fast ground likely to prevent the participation of Jack Hobbs.

Golden Horn and Frankie Dettori tracked lead horse Dick Doughtywylie before asserting in the final furlong, while Jack Hobbs, who will carry the blue of Godolphin for the first time next month, comfortably beat his lead horse, Marzocco, in the hands of William Buick.

Gosden said: "I was very happy with them. They relaxed well and moved well down the hill. It was just a breezy piece of work.

"They are young horses and it was a good experience for them to feel their way around the track. It is a peculiar track and it is something that you can't rehearse at home.

"They will do a piece of work at the weekend and then we will be where we want to be with them.

"I think it is an interesting race, even though people have made it a bit one dimensional.

"I am pretty sure that Jack Hobbs will get the trip and Golden Horn will probably get it on account that he is very laid-back.

"That will help him as, if it is a true test, he will need to see out the mile and a half.

"I wanted Frankie to stay with his lead horse on Golden Horn as he is a good lead horse, while I was keen on Jack Hobbs coming away from his lead horse Marzocco, as he is a stayer, and having a look. They were matched up well.

"Golden Horn was asleep, and that temperament is a big plus. If you don't relax early on you won't stay.

"Jack Hobbs is an equally laid-back horse but he was very much on the ball."

Dettori and Buick will be switching mounts on Derby day, having ridden the opposite horses at York.

Dettori said: "The Dante was a telling factor, but don't dismiss Jack Hobbs as he is still a good horse.

"I think a mile and a half is definitely in his compass and he is a much more raw horse than Golden Horn.

"Golden Horn handled the track OK. He is a very laid-back character and he needs a crowd to rev him up. He will be a better horse on the race day."

Buick said: "Jack Hobbs felt very comfortable coming down the hill. We didn't press any buttons but he is still learning about the game.

"Every step which he takes is going forward. The ground was perfect for him out there."

Jockey Andrea Atzeni was delighted with Elm Park after he traversed the famous Epsom turf.

Last season's Racing Post Trophy winner ran a perfectly respectable race when third in the Dante on his seasonal reappearance and connections are anticipating improvement from York.

The Andrew Balding-trained son of Phoenix Reach appeared to have no problems with the notoriously tricky circuit, sitting in the slipstream of lead horse Breakheart rounding Tattenham Corner before quickening up nicely to finish well on top.

Balding said: "I was happy as Andrea was happy.

"The main thing was to let him have a feel for the track. It was not a fact-finding mission.

"He had a hard race in the Dante but, to my surprise, by the Monday morning he was fresh and well.

"You always worry the first run back after a long lay-off may drag them back, but he seems fine."

Found remains in contention following her narrow defeat in Sunday's Irish 1,000 Guineas.

The last filly to run in the mile and-a-half Classic was Cape Verdi, who finished ninth in 1998, with Nobiliary the latest to be placed when second to Grundy in 1975.

Six fillies have won the Derby, although the latest was 99 years ago when Fifinella landed a war-time substitute Derby at Newmarket.

With a number of Aidan O'Brien's Derby prospects falling by the wayside, the Coolmore team are not ruling out letting Found take on the boys after going down by half a length to Pleascach at the Curragh.

Coolmore representative Kevin Buckley said: "The plan is to come to Epsom, probably for the Oaks but possibly for the Derby.

"'We have a good representation in the Oaks with Diamondsandrubies and Together Forever, so we have to look at the Derby for Found."

Other possible Derby contenders for the master of Ballydoyle include Chester Vase winner Hans Holbein, but it appears increasingly likely dual Guineas winner Gleneagles will not be on the team.

"I was taken by Hans Holbein's performance at Chester. He's a big price," said Buckley.

"Aidan maintains he (Gleneagles) is a specialist miler. Being realistic, the St James's Palace (at Royal Ascot) is his likely target.

"Giovanni Canaletto is still being trained with the Derby in mind, but the race may come too soon."
