Aidan O'Brien and Godolphin and were keeping plenty of options when the latest acceptance stage for the Sagitta 2000 Guineas was published today.

Between them they have a representation of 10, five horses each, in the 41 horses remaining in the #300,000 race at Newmarket on Saturday week.

O'Brien, a winner of the race previously with King of Kings, is responsible for Giant's Causeway, the ante-post favourite, as well as Bach, Bernstein, Monashee Mountain and Royal Kingdom.

Godolphin, bidding to add to the victories of Mark of Esteem and Island Sands, have Bachir, Broche, China Visit Fath, Glad Master and Zoning.

But China Visit is only in the race as a precaution as he is set to tackle the Kentucky Derby.

Richard Hannon is another with a strong hand, he has last week's Newmarket winners Cape Town and Umistim as well as Kingsdon and Mana-Mou Bay.

David Elsworth and Barry Hills could both be double-handed, the former with Alfini and Scarteen Fox and the latter with Distant Music and Scarteen Fox.

Petrushka is among 35 horses remaining at the latest acceptance stage for the Sagitta 1000 Guineas on Sunday week.

The teams of Godolphin and O'Brien are only slightly weaker than the colts' equivalent with four entries apiece.

Trainer Mick Channon, still seeking his first Classic victory, has a possible three-pronged attack with his main hope Seazun being backed up by Areydha and Miletrian.
