Dream among Navan entries

Magical Dream in winning action

Magical Dream is one of three possible runners for Aidan O'Brien in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Salsabil Stakes at Navan on Sunday.

The daughter of Galileo won twice from five juvenile appearances, finishing off her campaign with a fine victory in the seven-furlong Group Three CL Weld Park Stakes at the Curragh in late September.

She will step up to a mile and a quarter for the first time if she does return to action in this weekend's Listed contest.

O'Brien has also entered Half Moon and Just Pretending, both of whom were well held in solitary maiden starts last year.

The in-form Jim Bolger could saddle Rehn's Nest, winner of the Park Express Stakes at the Curragh last month, as well as impressive Gowran scorer We'll Go Walking.

Dermot Weld's Salhooda and the Tommy Stack-trained Alive Alive Oh are other interesting contenders among 10 entries.

The concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Race on the same card promises to be a fascinating affair.

O'Brien has five possible runners, headed by Eye Of The Storm, a good third in last year's Autumn Stakes at Newmarket.

The Ballydoyle handler could also be represented by Leading Light, Magician, Nevis and Ruler Of The World.

Bolger has Einsteins Folly and Sun On The Run in the mix, while Patrick Prendergast's Canary Row and Galileo Rock from David Wachman's yard are other notable possibles.
