Saxon Warrior and The Pentagon head Trophy challenge for O'Brien

Thu 26 Oct 2017

Aidan O'Brien will field four of the 12 runners in Saturday's Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster as he seeks a record-breaking 26th victory at the highest level this year.

The Pentagon, Saxon Warrior, Seahenge and Coat Of Arms are the chosen quartet and if one manages to win, their place in history will be assured as the horse who helped O'Brien surpass Bobby Frankel's Group/Grade One tally.

Despite Saxon Warrior and The Pentagon dominating the betting for next year's Derby, the two-year-old bringing the best form into the race is Jim Bolger's National Stakes winner Verbal Dexterity, who was forced to miss the Dewhurst after scoping dirty. Bolger also runs Theobald.

Heading up the home team is John Gosden's unbeaten Roaring Lion, who will aim to cap an amazing autumn for the trainer.

Charlie Appleby supplemented the once-raced Loxley earlier in the week but has decided against running Masar.

The Martyn Meade-trained Chilean, Sir Michael Stoute's Gabr, David Elsworth's Merlin Magic and Alfa Maguire from Bryan Smart's yard complete the list.
