Air Force Blue Heads Dewhurst Entries
Sunday's impressive National Stakes winner Air Force Blue heads 13 entries from the Aidan O'Brien stable in the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket on 10 October, reports Sky Sports. The son of War Front was promoted to favouritism for next year's 2000 Guineas following his emphatic 3-length victory over Herald The Dawn at the Curragh. O'Brien has assembled a very strong Dewhurst team that also includes Royal Ascot winners Washington DC and Waterloo Bridge and the unbeaten Gr3 winner Deauville. Unbeaten Godolphin colt Emotionless, a stunning winner of the Gr2 Champagne Stakes at Doncaster on Saturday, is the sole entry from Charlie Appleby's yard, while John Gosden has seven representatives including the brilliant Shalaa, last start winner of the Gr1 Prix Morny at Deauville.
