Anthony Van Dyck and Quorto are among 16 potential runners in the Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
Aidan O’Brien’s Anthony Van Dyck has won three of his four starts to date, but was only workmanlike in winning the Futurity Stakes last time out and subsequently lost his position at the head of the Derby betting to Too Darn Hot.
O’Brien could also run Van Beethoven, Land Force, Cape Of Good Hope, Christmas, Broome, Cardini, Mohawk and Sydney Opera House.
Quorto, trained by Charlie Appleby, is unbeaten in two starts and was a very impressive winner of the Superlative Stakes in July.
Godolphin also bought Dark Vision after his easy win at Goodwood and he also holds an entry.
Kevin Prendergast’s Madhmoon created a big impression on his debut and could step up to Group One class while Jessica Harrington has left in Klute.
The Fozzy Stack pair of Highland Fortune and Wargrave along with Jim Bolger’s Copia Verborum complete the list.
