North Yorkshire trainer David O'Meara has supplemented Lord Of The Land for the Qatar Racing Club Phoenix Sprint Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The five-year-old, who was trained in France by Andre Fabre until this season, has gradually been getting his act together and was a good fifth to The Tin Man in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury on his latest start.

O'Meara has left in his July Cup runner-up Suedois at the confirmation stage after which 14 stood their ground. However, he is expected to run in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville on the same afternoon.

Richard Fahey's Eastern Impact and Aclaim from Martyn Meade's stable are the other British-trained runners left in the six-furlong Group Three contest.

Tom Hogan's evergreen veteran Gordon Lord Byron may go for a hat-trick after returning to form with wins at Tipperary and the Curragh on his last two outings.

Eddie Lynam has left in Moviesta and Fort Del Oro, while Aidan O'Brien can select from Cougar Mountain, The Happy Prince, Classic disappointment Air Force Blue and Air Vice Marshal.

The list is completed by Flight Risk, Jamesie and Toscanini.
