Aidan O’Brien and Richard Hannon dominate entries for the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes and the Betfred Hungerford Stakes

Aidan O’Brien and Richard Hannon are responsible for 15 of the 55 initial entries for the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes on Saturday 20 September.

Dick Whittingham, The Great War and War Envoy were all beaten at Royal Ascot for O’Brien, but could bid for revenge in the Group 2 six-furlong juvenile contest.

The unraced quartet of Father Frost, General Marshall, The Crewmaster and Cradle Mountain make up the rest of the Coolmore challenge as O’Brien bids to win the race for the first time.

Richard Hannon Snr is the joint-leading trainer in the race’s history with four wins and his son has engaged 2000 Guineas ante-post favourite Ivawood, impressive Norfolk Stakes scorer Baitha Alga and the hardy Kool Kompany, beaten just once in six starts.

Also possibles to represent the yard are Beacon, Dougal, Dr No and Holland Park.

The unbeaten Limato, winner of a Listed event over course and distance when last seen, is the promising name from Henry Candy’s yard.

Hamdan Al Maktoum has enjoyed a fantastic season and the owner has Adaay and Mubtaghaa engaged, both trained by William Haggas.

Other Irish interest comes in the shape of Capella Sansevero and Accepted from the Tommy Stack stable.

For the Betfred Hungerford Stakes, which takes place on Saturday 16 August, two of Hannon’s star names, JLT Lockinge Stakes scorer Olympic Glory and QIPCO 2000 Guineas winner Night Of Thunder, are among 36 total entries.

Champion juvenile Toormore, The Queen’s Musical Comedy, Professor, Producer and Day Of Conquest are the handler’s other horses, as Hannon bids to win the race his father took three times.

O’Brien, yet to saddle the winner of the Group 2 seven-furlong contest, has entered Diamond Jubilee runner-up Due Diligence, exciting three-year-old Cougar Mountain, Verrazano, Darwin and the progressive Table Rock.

Last year’s winner Gregorian, who gave John Gosden a record fifth win in the race, Aljamaheer, Glory Awaits, Garswood, Guest Of Honour and Muteela are other notable names.
