The 2017 Derby at Epsom will be the richest race ever staged in Britain after two horses were added as late entries at a cost of £85,000 each.

The addition of Permian, who was successful in the Dante Stakes at York, and last week’s Goodwood winner Khalidi, means the total purse for the Classic on 3 June will be £1.625m.

The John Gosden-trained Cracksman is the favourite.
