**NOTE that only the winning jockey was recorded in the Racing Calendar. However, Jem Robinson rode all of Mr Rush's Derby runners, unless claimed by Lord Jersey, and partnered the 'Colt by Selim' at Newmarket's Craven Meeting to win a 100 Guineas Sweepstake, so it is reasonable to assume that he partnered the same horse in the Derby.
