No Drama for Lyons despite defeat

Ger Lyons retains all his faith in Endless Drama despite the giant colt being turned over at the Curragh on Monday.

Having looked in control on entering the final furlong, the Lope De Vega colt was worn down close home by Dermot Weld's Tombelaine in the Tetrarch Stakes

A crack at the Irish 2,000 Guineas is still on the cards, although Lyons admits it will be difficult to beat Gleneagles given his dominance at Newmarket last Saturday.

"The first two have pulled clear and he's still on track (for the Irish 2,000 Guineas). If Gleneagles turns up we might as well all stay at home, but I'm going to give him one shot at it," said Lyons.

"He'll be better on better ground.

"He's such a big, gross horse and he'll come on again for it.

"I wanted to be like Pat (Smullen) and come last to challenge. The only negative is that he didn't win."
