The Great War, hugely impressive in two starts to date, could put his reputation on the line in Saturday's Cold Move EBF Marble Hill Stakes at the Curragh.

Aidan O'Brien's youngster, by sire-of-the-moment War Front, has notched effortless victories at Tipperary and the Curragh already this season and could be part of O'Brien's Royal Ascot team if he comes through this latest test.

O'Brien has also entered another War Front colt, War Envoy, who won on his debut in taking fashion at Naas. The Ballydoyle team also have Timbuktu and Dick Whittington in the frame.

Ger Lyons has also entered two smart youngsters in Cappella Sanservero and Dandyleekie, with both unbeaten to date and also under Ascot consideration.

Blackbriar, Coto, Primo Uomo, Sexy Legs and Sors make up the 11 entries.
