Aidan: Two to make Millions

Aidan O'Brien is keen to take a hand in the Tattersalls Millions Irish Champion Stakes, with three stable stars still under consideration.

The Ballydoyle handler has been out of luck in the 10-furlong heat for the last couple of years but he has five previous wins to his credit, including back-to-back victories with Dylan Thomas in 2006 and 2007.

That means he is tied with the great Vincent O'Brien as leading trainer in the race.

Fame And Glory has already bagged two Group One wins this term and returned to action with a win at the Curragh last time, while Rip Van Winkle won the Juddmonte International at York last week.

His trio of leading hopes for the September 4 showpiece at Leopardstown is completed by Irish Derby hero Cape Blanco, who was a distant second behind Harbinger at Ascot on his latest outing.

"This race has provided racing with great champions over the years. It is a race we always eagerly look forward to at Ballydoyle," said O'Brien.

"We are actively considering between Fame And Glory, Cape Blanco and Rip Van Winkle.

"It is highly likely that two of the three will most definitely run."

Richard Hannon's King Torus, a hugely impressive winner of the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, could head to France for his next start.

Also triumphant in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket, the Robert Ogden-owned juvenile looks set for a trip to Longchamp for the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on Arc weekend.

Coincidentally, his sire Oratorio won the French race in 2004.

"King Torus is entered in both the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket and the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster, but we slightly favour going to Paris for a race which his father, Oratorio, won in 2004," said Hannon.

"King Torus has just got better and better and we were all impressed how well he stretched out when taking the Vintage Stakes by six lengths at Glorious Goodwood.

"He also won the Superlative at Newmarket's July meeting, so he has two Group twos in the bag and deserves a crack at a big one," he said.

James Given is relishing the prospect of taking on red-hot St Leger favourite Rewilding with Dandino in the Ladbrokes-sponsored Classic at Doncaster.

The Dansili colt, owned by Elite Racing Club, has progressed from winning a Redcar maiden in April, through the handicap ranks, to finishing second in the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

Given decided to sidestep the Great Voltigeur at York, a decision he feels was vindicated by the way in which Rewilding strolled to victory.

"He's in very good . He came out of the Gordon Stakes very, very well," said Given.

"I'm pleased we missed the York race.

"We left him in it as an option but it was never really likely, it was just in case anything went wrong with the other horses.

"We would have had to get into a battle with Rewilding, but we'll save that for September 11 on Town Moor."
