Frenetic can live up to her name once more

A horse's name doesn't always turn out to be a fair reflection on them but Frenetic is easily living up to her title ahead of the Group Two Airlie Stud Stakes (3.10) at the Curragh tomorrow. 

Ger Lyons' speedster has been impressive on her two starts as a juvenile and scorched away to take the Listed First Flier Stakes at the Kildare track last month, with the Meath trainer proclaiming her to be 'the fastest' that he trains.

Her biggest danger comes in the shape of the Aidan O'Brien-trained Mother Earth, which had Jessica Harrington's Sussex Garden and Ken Condon's Inner Beauty in arrears when taking a Naas Group Three in great style two weeks ago.

Lyons' Kodiac filly could be Group One quality though, and Colin Keane is tipped to keep her unbeaten streak intact, while the pair also hold strong claims with another filly later in the card as Lemista eyes a stakes hat-trick in the Group Two Kilboy Estate Stakes (4.15).

O'Brien's Lovelier, winner of a Listed contest at Killarney on Monday, should also be the mix, but Harrington's One Voice is preferred with the form of her Group Three Blue Wind Stakes victory working out in her favour.

Keane is also the choice of Simon and Ed Crisford to partner English raider A'Ali in the Group Two Holden Plant Rentals Sapphire Stakes (3.45) after the three-year-old had tongues wagging following a smooth success in a Group Three sprint at Sandown two weeks ago.

Denis Hogan's Make A Challenge will lay down the gauntlet but A'Ali could have too much class.

Elsewhere, an all-chase card at Tipperary tomorrow may see Henry de Bromhead's Benruben belatedly open his account over fences (2.55).
