Dawn Approach is one of six 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, is also be represented by Leitir Mor.

Compatriot Aidan O'Brien has declared The Ferryman and George Vancouver.

The unbeaten Ashdan is an engaging entry from John Gosden's stables, but Dundonnell has been taken out by Roger Charlton.

Funk Soul Brother completes the sextet.
