O'Brien dominates National Stakes

Ballydoyle look to be doing everything they can to win Saturday’s Ladbrokes.com Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at Leopardstown by providing 12 of the possible 18 runners at this stage.

Vincent O’Brien, who died earlier this year, has the name run in his honour, and the man now in charge at his old stables, Aidan O’Brien, could run several of his top juveniles.

Among the 12 are Alfred Nobel, Cape Blanco and Viscount Nelson, who have all shown winning form.

Only one of the other six is from Britain, the Godolphin representative Poet’s Voice, third in the Acomb Stakes last time.

Chabal, an impressive winner on debut for Jim Bolger last Saturday, is also engaged alongside Kingsfort, Stunning View, Senior and Free Judgement.
