O'Brien has International options

Aidan O'Brien has a host of top-class options for Wednesday's Juddmonte International at York on Wednesday.

The Ballydoyle handler's quartet includes last year's dual Derby winner Camelot, though he has finished behind likely market leader Al Kazeem twice already this season.

O'Brien also has the option of running Queen Anne winner Declaration Of War, Epsom Derby hero Ruler Of The World and one of last year's leading juveniles Kingsbarns, although he is also entered in the Neptune Investment Management Great Voltigeur Stakes on the same day and is yet to run this term.

Roger Charlton's Al Kazeem has been one of the success stories of the season with wins in the Tattersalls Gold Cup, Prince Of Wales's Stakes and Eclipse and he will aim to add another Group One to his growing list of achievements.

Richard Hannon has left in Sussex Stakes winner Toronado, who would be stepping up to 10 furlongs for the first time if he is allowed to take his chance.

Jim Bolger's Irish Derby winner Trading Leather and Sir Michael Stoute's Royal Ascot winner Hillstar are other three-year-olds engaged while James Toller's Rewarded is the final contender.

As expected, French runner Cirrus Des Aigles will not be making the journey over following his defeat last weekend.
