Aidan O'Brien dominates the line-up for Saturday's boylesports.com Vincent O'Brien National Stakes, with Zoffany leading a four-strong assault.

The Dansili colt has bounced back from Royal Ascot disappointment by claiming Listed and Group Three events at Leopardstown before striking at the highest level in the Phoenix Stakes last time.

Zoffany is set to be joined by Futurity Stakes third, fourth and fifth Samuel Morse, High Ruler and Rudolf Valentino.

Futurity winner Pathfork represents Jessica Harrington as he bids to add to his Group Two success.

Jim Bolger's Glor Na Mara, runner-up in the Phoenix and Futurity, will be trying to bounce back following another narrow defeat last time.

Godolphin field Washington Singer winner Janood, while Michael Halford's Casamento and Dermot Weld's A Word Apart complete the list of contenders.
