Aidan O'Brien has no fewer than 19 horses among the 92 entries announced today for the £145,000 Dante Stakes at York on May 17.

The Irish trainer won the Group Two contest in 1998 with Saratoga Springs and his team is headed by William Hill's Vodafone Derby favourite Aristotle, winner of the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster in October.

Other notable Ballydoyle entries include Ciro, who was awarded the Grand Criterium at Longchamp last season, and Giant's Causeway, who landed the Prix de la Salamandre at the same course.

Godolphin are also strongly represented in the event with 14 entries.

The Dubai operation's possibles include Bachir and Inchlonaig, second and fourth behind China Visit in the UAE Derby at Nad Al Sheba on Saturday, and the highly-regarded Dubai Two Thousand, a 20-1 chance for the Derby with Hills.

Henry Cecil, six times a winner of the race between 1979 and 1993, has 10 representatives, including Beat Hollow, another 20-1 hope for the Epsom classic.

The most notable absentee from the race is Barry Hills's Sagitta 2000 Guineas favourite Distant Music.
