'Steph' can spoil party and strike for Lyons

If the English equivalent is anything to go by, there could be a shock in tomorrow's Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas (4.10) at the Curragh and Ger Lyons may be the man to provide it.

Aidan O'Brien bids to become the most successful trainer in the race's history with an eighth success and Newmarket third Happily - upset by 66/1 shot Billesdon Brook - spearheads his quartet.

The dual Group One scorer deserves respect but hovering around odds of 11/8 doesn't represent value and the progressive Who's Steph - winner of the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial earlier this month - is an interesting contender at a decent price for Lyons.

It could be a bittersweet day for the Meath handler, however, as Lightening Quick makes her first appearance for Johnny Murtagh after moving from Lyons' stable following his parting of ways with Qatar Racing and she holds a chance under Jamie Spencer.

Clemmie - ruled out of the Newmarket Classic after a slight setback having been a strong favourite - is most likely the best horse in the race but with O'Brien stressing that the Cheveley Park winner will improve a great deal for the run, Who's Steph is the one to keep on the right side of.

The other Group One sees a small but select field of five tackle the Tattersalls Gold Cup (2.25) and it looks set to be an intriguing duel between O'Brien's Cliffs Of Moher and Roger Varian's Defoe with preference for the progressive English raider.
