Epsom - (Back-in-the-Saddle-Again): "The horse's name means touchpaper in Arabic, haha!" a Godolphin stablehand commented today as the Newmarket yard prepared to win its first ever Epsom Derby.

The booking of former champion jockey Kieren Fallon sees the son of Medaglia d'Oro cut to 20/1 for the Blue Ribband classic with stable companion Rewilding, ridden by Frankie Dettori, at sixes.

"Kieren's got it all wrapped up with the Godolphin second string," a Racing Host editorial explained.

"The 'vanity ride' sees Fallon's past career mistakes of cocaine use and race fixing left well behind."

Today's field of fourteen is seen by critics as a pathetic one with only one Group One winner - 9/4 favorite Jan Vermeer - having won a significant six-figure sum.

The booking of jockey Michael Hills on 33/1 chance Ted Spread could be the main danger this afternoon.
