Aidan O'Brien sextet in Trophy frame at Doncaster

Published 17/10/2016


Aidan O'Brien has six horses left in the Racing Post Trophy as he seeks to win the Group One for two-year-olds for an eighth time at Doncaster on Saturday.

Capri, who completed a hat-trick with victory in the Group Two Beresford Stakes at the Curragh last month, heads the Ballydoyle trainer's team.

His other entries, after 17 remained in the Town Moor showpiece at the five-day confirmation stage, are Douglas Macarthur, Finn McCool, Sir John Lavery, The Anvil and Yucatan.

The other Irish-trained possible is Ger Lyons' Leopardstown maiden winner Brutal, owned by Qatar Racing.

The home contingent is led by Sylvester Kirk's Salouen, who was runner-up in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, William Haggas' Champagne Stakes scorer Rivet and the Mark Johnston-trained son of Frankel, Frankuus, who landed a Group Three at Chantilly earlier this month.

Simon Crisford is double-handed with Century Dream and Rodainni, with the list completed by Bay Of Poets, City Of Joy, Contrapposto, Sir Dancealot and Raheen House.
