Minding gets Guineas go ahead


Minding will take her chance in Sunday's Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas following Ballydoyle's defection from the Curragh Classic.

A brilliant winner at Newmarket at the start of the month, Minding had been expected to swerve the race but she was declared on Friday morning with Ballydoyle ruled out by trainer Aidan O'Brien.

"We've decided to declare Minding for the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas but Ballydoyle's blood picture wasn't 100 per cent right this morning and she won't be declared," O'Brien told the Racing Post.

Minding heads the 14 fillies declared for the Classic and she will be joined in the field by stable companion's Coolmore, Californiadreaming and Pretty Perfect.

Jim Bolger will saddle Turret Rocks alongside the Dermot Weld-trained Tanaza and Now Or Never from Michael O'Callaghan's yard.

Anamba will take her chance for Michael Halford with Cool Thunder the sole representative for Kevin Prendergast.

Ashadihan from Kevin Ryan's and Czabo for Mick Channon are the only British representatives in the field, while Adrian Keatley's Jet Setting has stood her ground after being supplemented earlier in the week.

Diamond Fields and Radiantly complete the line-up.

Elsewhere, eight runners have been declared for the Tattersalls Gold Cup on the same card.

Breeders' Cup Turf winner Found heads the list of runners and will renew rivalry with Fascinating Rock following their clash in the Mooresbridge Stakes earlier this month.

The Grey Gatsby bids to make amends after finishing fourth when sent off the favourite 12 months ago, while Roger Charlton will send over Time Test.

Success Days, The Steward, Bocca Baciata and Hot Sauce will also line-up in the Group 1.
