**NOTE that only the jockeys of the first two were recorded in the Racing Calendar. However, each of the other jockeys have been listed as 'best guesses' given that they regularly rode for the owner that season and rode the Derby horse in their previous races. In the case of Cephalus, Jem Robinson partnered the colt to victory at Newmarket's Second Spring Meeting (1824) and in the Epsom Gold Cup (1824), so it is reasonable to assume he partnered the colt in the Derby.
