Olympic Glory and Moohaajim are the star names among 14 colts entered for Saturday's Aon Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

The Richard Hannon-trained Olympic Glory won the Prix Jean Luc Lagardere at Longchamp on his final outing last term to supplement a pair of Group Two wins in Britain.

His trainer also has Havana Gold in the race while Marco Botti has two in Moohaajim and Hasopop.

The first-named won the Mill Reef Stakes last year before finishing a narrow second in the Middle Park at the end of his campaign.

Roger Charlton's Dundonnell won the Acomb Stakes and finished a close-up fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf.

However, Charlton also has the Khalid Abdullah-owned colt in Thursday's Craven Stakes and would prefer to run there if the ground is quick enough.

He said: "Dundonnell has been entered in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury on Saturday as an alternative to the Craven Stakes on Thursday in case the ground at Newmarket is still on the slow side.

"My preference at this stage is to run at Newmarket but a final decision may be delayed until Thursday morning if necessary," he told www.rogercharlton.com.

Godolphin's hopes rest with impressive Horris Hill scorer Tawhid, Tattersalls Million winner Ghurair could represent John Gosden while Jim Bolger can pick from Leitir Mor and Move To Strike.

Anna's Pearl, Correspondent, Hiddon Coin, Ribaat and Sir Patrick Moore round out the possibles.
