Magician in Mooresbridge mix

Magician is one of eight horses to stand their ground for Monday's High Chaparral EBF Mooresbridge Stakes at the Curragh.

Aidan O'Brien's Breeders' Cup and Irish 2,000 Guineas winner disappointed on his return when only sixth behind Gentildonna in the Sheema Classic at Meydan but could go in search of compensation in this Group Three over a mile and a quarter.

Stablemate Hall Of Mirrors is also in the reckoning, although he missed his entire three-year-old campaign and has not been seen since winning at Gowran back in October 2012.

Jim Bolger holds a strong hand with Parish Hall, Loch Garman, Paene Magnus and Leitir Mor, while John Oxx's Qewy and the Andrew Oliver-trained Jazz Girl complete the possibles.

O'Brien has won the race for the last four seasons, sending out Fame And Glory, So You Think, Windsor Palace and Camelot since 2010.
