16 declared to run in Irish 1000 Guineas

Again installed as 5/2 favourite by the sponsors.

Curragh Racing

The David Wachman trained performer is one of 16 fillies declared for the Group 1 race.  English 1000 Guineas runner up Cuis Ghaire is 4/1, while Super Sleuth, third in same race, is 9/2.  The Mick Channon trained Lahaleeb is 8/1, Dance Pass 12/1,  while Chintz and Luminous Eyes are 14/1 while it is 20/1 bar. Five will go to post for the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup also on Sunday including multiple Group 1 winner Lush Lashes, together with Famous Name, Casual Conquest and the Aidan OBrien trained Thewayyouare.

Delegator continues to be favourite for the Irish 2000 Guineas on Saturday, Leon Blanche, Head of Public Relations, commented,

At the moment, Mastercraftsman is the 2nd favourite at 9/4 but that price is coming under pressure all the time. Many punters are putting their faith in Aiden OBrien winning his 9th Irish Classic in a row. I envisage Mastercraftsman being at least 2/1 joint favourite by tomorrow morning if not slight favourite ahead of Delegator.
