The Jim Bolger-trained Dawn Approach is one of 15 possible runners in Saturday's Dubai Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket.

The 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.

Aidan O'Brien 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.

Reckless Abandon is the star name among 12 confirmations for the Middle Park Stakes on the same card.

Clive Cox's Doncaster maiden winner won the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot and a Group Two at Maisons-Laffitte before opening his account at Group One level in the Prix Morny at Deauville.

Reckless Abandon is likely to face a strong challenge as he aims to end his juvenile campaign with his unbeaten record intact.

The Marco Botti-trained Moohaajim was fifth behind Reckless Abandon in the Morny, having met trouble in running, and has since landed the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury. He is set to reoppose this weekend.

Kevin Ryan could saddle Blaine, last seen winning the Gimcrack Stakes at York, and Hototo.

As one would expect, Aidan O'Brien has a strong entry, with Cristoforo Colombo, Gale Force Ten, George Vancouver and Parliament Square in the mix, while Jim Bolger could be represented by Wexford Opera.

Heavy Metal, Master Of War and Taayel complete the entries.
