It certainly isn't every day of the week that two horses with the same name compete against each other in the same race, but that unusual scenario is thrown up in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden (4.50) at Gowran Park tomorrow.

Confusion is set to reign at the Kilkenny track, as well as in betting shops across the country, as two fillies named Sierra Nevada compete against each other with one trained by Jessica Harrington and the other in the hands of Charles O'Brien.
