The Ballydoyle Investec Derby contenders are pleasing connections ahead of next week's Classic.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien has five possibles, including Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Roderic O'Connor, Leopardstown Derby Trial victor Recital and Dante runner-up Seville.

They all are reported to be going well, although no final decision on the team for Epsom has yet been made.

"The work of our Epsom Derby hopefuls Roderic O'Connor, Recital, Seville, Treasure Beach and Memphis Tennessee is all going well so far," O'Brien's wife Annemarie said on her Twitter account.

"However it is possible that one of them could be re-routed to Chantilly on Sunday week."
