A FIELD of 15 has been declared for Saturday's Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, Louisville. Holy Bull, owned and trained by 74-year-old Jimmy Croll and to be ridden by Mike Smith, is quoted as the 8-5 favourite.

Brocco, owned by James Bond film producer Cubby Broccoli and drawn in stall 10, is 3-1.

Holy Bull is drawn in No 4. Croll said he had wanted No 5 because it was his lucky number, but he was happy with No 4, where his horse will have a clear shot at the lead in the mile-and-a-quarter race.
