Wings added to Derby field

Dante Stakes winner Wings Of Desire was one of four horses supplemented for Saturday's Investec Derby at the confirmation stage.

John Gosden's charge emerged as genuine contender for Derby honours when landing the York contest by a neck earlier this month, but connections had to pay the £75,000 supplementary fee to add him to the field for the blue riband.

The Godolphin-owned Cloth Of Stars, the Richard Hannon-trained Humphrey Bogart and Red Verdon from Ed Dunlop's yard were also added to the field on Monday.

In total 18 colts remain engaged in the race with Aidan O'Brien responsible for seven of the entries.

O'Brien's string is headed by Chester Vase winner US Army Ranger with Beacon Rock, Bravery, Deauville, Idaho, Port Douglas and Shogun also entered by the Ballydoyle handler.

Jim Bolger's Moonlight Magic and the Dermot Weld-trained Harzand could also make the trip from Ireland, while Sir Michael Stoute could be double-handed after Ulysses and Lingfield Derby Trial third Across The Stars stood their ground.

2000 Guineas runner-up Massaat remains engaged for Owen Burrows with David Simock's Algometer and the Karl Burke-trained Biodynamic completing the possible field.

Meanwhile, Found and Postponed remain on course to meet in the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Cup on the same card.

Found had been expected to miss the race after finishing second in the Tattersalls Gold Cup but Aidan O'Brien is happy with the filly's condition and is considering sending her to Epsom.

"Found came out of the Curragh well, and we are looking at the Coronation Cup," said O'Brien

St Leger winner Simple Verse and Juddmonte International scorer Arabian Queen have also stood their ground alongside Master Carpenter, Star Storm and The Corsican.

As well as the hot favourite Postponed, trainer Roger Varian could saddle Ajman Bridge and Roseburgm while Luca Cumani could be represented by Second Step.
