But punters seeking some juicy each-way value might be advised to look elsewhere.

Saxon Warrior is odds-on with most bookmakers and his skinny price will put off a lot of backers.

So each-way punters looking for a Derby Day longshot might want to consider a few shillings on 20/1 hopeful Knight To Behold.

Richard Kingscote is riding in his first Epsom Derby and will bid to emulate Mickael Barzalona (2011) and Padraig Beggy (2017) by winning the race at his first attempt.

Kingscote gave Knight To Behold an enterprising ride to win the Lingfield Derby Trial and Harry Dunlop’s horse would probably be a much shorter price if he was trained by a more fashionable handler.

A son of the mighty Sea The Stars, Knight To Behold will have to settle a little better than he did at Lingfield but he will definitely get the trip.

The other each-way steal could be the sole northern raider Dee Ex Bee, trained by Mark Johnston and ridden by Silvestre de Sousa.

If De Sousa can get a handy position early in the race, Dee Ex Bee might well outrun his odds of 25/1 and sneak a place for each-way backers.

Dante was the last northern-trained horse to win the Derby in 1945 and it is asking a lot for Dee Ex Bee to repel the favourites but he might be capable of running into a place.

Roaring Lion and Young Rascal are vying for second favouritism in flat racing’s blue riband event and both will appreciate the ground drying out a little.

Young Rascal is owned by Bernard Kantor, who is managing director of the race sponsors Investec and whose dream has always been to win the Derby.

Young Rascal narrowly beat Dee Ex Bee in the Chester Vase but there is a huge difference in their prices with Young Rascal at 7/1 and Dee Ex Bee at 25/1.
