A total of 19 colts have been declared for the first English Classic of the season in Saturday's Qipco 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket, headed by ante-post favourite Gleneagles, who is one of two Aidan O'Brien-trained runners along with Ol' Man River.

Richard Hannon has declared four in the race with Greenham second and third Estidhkaar and Ivawood set to be joined by Craven winner and third Kool Kompany and Moheet.

Varian will still have a runner in the race in the shape of Intilaaq as will Godolphin who field the Andre Fabre-trained Territories.

There will also be a second French-trained runner as Freddy Head sends Ride Like The Wind to Newmarket following his Prix Djebel success.

Andrew Balding will be represented by Elm Park while Maftool's absence allows James Doyle to maintain his association on Home Of  The Brave, having won the European Free Handicap aboard Hugo Palmer's charge earlier this month.

Mark Prescott runs Celestial Path with Bossy Guest, Capella Sansevero, Code Red, Dutch Connection, Glenalmond, Hail The Hero and Room Key completing the line-up.
