Ante-post favourite English King headlines a final field of 16 declared for the Investec Derby at Epsom on Saturday, with Aidan O'Brien maintaining a strong hand in the race.

Ed Walker's charge booked his place in the Classic line-up with an impressive victory in the Lingfield Derby Trial and will be the mount of Frankie Dettori, as the ever-popular Italian chases a third Derby success, after Authorized (2007) and Golden Horn (2015).

The Andrew Balding-trained Kameko already has one Classic win on his CV after landing the 2000 Guineas last month and he will try to emulate Camelot, who supplemented his Newmarket win with Derby glory back in 2012.

Aidan O'Brien fields a six-strong challenge as he bids for a record eighth Derby success, with only Armory removed from his seven initial entries.

Royal Ascot winner Russian Emperor is the shortest O'Brien contender in the betting, but King Edward VII Stakes fourth Mogul features prominently along with Irish 2,000 Guineas runner-up Vatican City. Mythical, Serpentine and Amhran Na Bhfiann also represent Ballydoyle.

Pyledriver was a surprise winner of the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot and he takes his chance for William Muir, with third-placed Mohican Heights reopposing for David Simcock.

Paul and Oliver Cole's Royal meeting winner Highland Chief features, as does Balding's Khalifa Sat, who was a Listed winner at Goodwood on his reappearance.

The field is completed by Jessica Harrington's Gold Maze, Emissary from Hugo Palmer's yard, the Ralph Beckett-trained Max Vega and Worthily, who won on his only start to date for John Gosden.

Market leaders Love and Frankly Darling head a field of eight for the Oaks.

Love has been the ante-post favourite since her convincing victory in the Qipco 1000 Guineas and she now bids to become the first filly since Minding in 2016 to win both Classics.

Her trainer Aidan O'Brien also saddles Ennistymon and Passion as he seeks a seventh Oaks success.

Ennistymon was second to Frankly Darling in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The latter, a daughter of Frankel, landed that Group Two prize on only her third start. Her trainer John Gosden has won the Oaks three times in the last six years, as has O'Brien.

Gosden has a second string to his bow in Tiempo Vuela, while trainer Roger Varian is also doubly represented - with Gold Wand and Queen Daenerys.

Peter Chapple-Hyam's Bharani Star completes the octet.

The three withdrawals at the 48-hour final declaration stage were the O'Brien-trained Peaceful, who heads to France for the Prix de Diane Longines on Sunday, Dubai Love and Oriental Mystique.
