Leopardstown entry for O'Connor

Roderic O'Connor could make his return to action in the Leopardstown 2,000 Guineas Trial Stakes on Sunday.

Aidan O'Brien's colt got closest to Frankel in the Dewhurst last autumn before a successful raid to France which saw him secure the Group One Criterium International at Saint-Cloud.

Among the potential opposition is Kevin Prendergast's Anglesey Stakes winner Dunboyne Express, who went on to finish fifth in the Racing Post Trophy behind Casamento.

Prendergast also has Mawaakef in the mix, with Exodus and High Ruler adding strength to O'Brien's hand.

A Word Apart, Cocozza, Imperial Rome and Whipless complete the list of possibles.
