One of the greatest spectacles in the horse racing calendar - the Epsom Derby sits alongside the Grand National and the Cheltenham Gold Cup as one of the biggest days of either the flat or jumps seasons.
Officially known as the Investec Derby, it is a Group One contest open to three-year-old colts, which is run over the tricky contours at Epsom Downs Racecourse of a distance of a mile-and-a-half.
Britain's richest horse race, a great national sporting event, and the most prestigious of the five Classics, is similar to the Cheltenham Gold Cup in being otherwise referred to as the "Blue Riband" of the turf.
Last year, Masar faired best in the conditions at hand, delivering a first success in the race for Charlie Appleby and Godolphin, fending off the challenges of Dee Ex Bee and Roaring Lion, the latter who went onto become the Longines Champion Three-Year-Old.
This season, Too Darn Hot is already a short-priced favourite for the event after an immaculate two-year-old campaign for John Gosden, but Aiden O'Brien and Coolmore will have something to say about that, with the likes of Anthony Van Dyck, Japan and Norway all looking threatening.
The Epsom Derby meeting will be held on Saturday 1st June 2019.
