Marengo among 35 possibles for Post Trophy
AIDAN O'BRIEN is responsible for over a third of the 35 acceptors for the Racing Post Trophy with Beresford Stakes winner Battle Of Marengo among the 13 Ballydoyle possibles for Doncaster.
A general 16-1 chance for next year's Investec Derby, Battle Of Marengo is joined by the likes of stablemates Eye Of The Storm and Finn McCool for a race that also attracted Richard Hannon-trained duo Olympic Glory and Havana Gold.
Fellow Classic contenders Telescope, the impressive Newmarket maiden winner trained by Sir Michael Stoute, and Champagne Stakes runner-up Dundonnell also stand their ground for the Group 1 juvenile contest on October 27.
The O'Brien-trained ante-post Derby favourite Mars was a notable absentee alongside 2,000 Guineas favourite Dawn Approach, who is an odds-on shot for Saturday's Dubai Dewhurst Stakes.
O'Brien has won the race twice in the last three season courtesy of St Nicholas Abbey in 2009 and Camelot last year.
