Aidan O'Brien expects to saddle four runners in the Investec Derby - but Dee Stakes winner Rostropovich won't be among them.
Saxon Warrior is Sky Bet's 10/11 favourite for the premier Classic following his decisive success in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.
Kew Gardens (33/1), who filled the runner-up spot in the Lingfield Derby Trial on Saturday, has also been earmarked to run in the Derby.
O'Brien said: "I'd imagine those four will run and we'll see if anything else goes with them. I suppose the two horses in the trial yon Sunday, the second and the third, and I suppose the horse from Lingfield. He would be number four then, and if something else runs, I don't know. That's what I would be thinking."
Rostropovich looked a likely Derby contender when running out an impressive winner of last week's Dee Stakes at Chester.
O'Brien added: "I thought that maybe the horse from Chester might go to the French Derby and something might go with him. They've all been progressing from their trials. Even the horses (in the trials on Sunday), we were happy that they had progressed from their first runs."
