Daddy leads O'Brien charge

AIDAN O'BRIEN is responsible for six of the 16 five-day entries for Saturday's Dubai Dewhurst Stakes as he seeks to win the seven-furlong race for a third time.

The Ballydoyle trainer, successful with Rock of Gibraltar (2001) and Beethoven (2009), has a strong team headed by National Stakes victor Power and recent Royal Lodge Stakes winner Daddy Long Legs.

Reply, David Livingston, Nephrite and Tibet complete his list of possible runners at Newmarket.

Power, Reply, Nephrite and George Margarson's Rebellious Guest have also been left in the six-furlong Middle Park Stakes on the same card.

Spiritual Star, trained by Andrew Balding, was the sole supplementary entry at the confirmation stage.

Jim Bolger looks to Parish Hall for success, while Richard Hannon holds Bronterre and Champagne Stakes winner Trumpet Major.

A top-quality entry is completed by Ektihaam, Factory Time, Fencing, Most Improved and Red Duke.
