Dawn Approach is one of 15 possible runners in the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.

The Jim Bolger-trained youngster is unbeaten in five starts, including in the Vincent O'Brien Stakes at the Curragh last month, and is currently ante-post favourite for next year's 2000 Guineas.

Bolger, who has won four of the last six Dewhursts, could also be represented by Leitir Mor.

Compatriot Aidan O'Brien typically has a strong hand, with Cristoforo Colombo, Lines Of Battle and The Ferryman three of eight horses confirmed by Ballydoyle.

Dundonnell, the vanquished Champagne Stakes favourite, is still in the mix for the Roger Charlton team, with the unbeaten Ashdan an engaging entry from John Gosden's stables in the same Khalid Abdullah colours.

Havana Gold, who has won four races this season and was second in a big sales event at the weekend, could take his chance alongside No Jet Lag and Funk Soul Brother.
