FOUND heads 18 fillies and is one of three runners for Aidan O’Brien in Sunday’s Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas following Friday’s declarations stage.
A 9-4 chance for the Curragh Classic, Found has also been added to the Investec Derby ante-post market, with Ladbrokes introducing her at 10-1 on Thursday, while bet365 offer 12-1.
Stablemates Kissed By Angels and Qualify complete O’Brien’s trio, as the trainer attempts to follow up last year’s win with Marvellous.
Outstanding and Wedding Vow – also trained by O’Brien – and Teosroyal were the three fillies scratched on Friday morning, with Raydara, Pleascach and Devonshire all standing their ground.
A quality field of six was left in for the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup, with Al Kazeem facing Fascinating Rock, Highly Toxic, Parish Hall, Postponed and The Grey Gatsby.
Eddie Lynam elected to keep Sole Power in Ireland this weekend rather than head to Haydock for the betfred.com Temple Stakes, and the sprinter faces eight in the Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes.
Gordon Lord Byron is among his oppostion, and trainer Tom Hogan said: “He had bit of a problem last time he ran in Hong Kong as he tweaked a muscle coming out of the stalls.
“He’s facing a few horses who have a run under their belt but we have to start somewhere.”
