Capri among Beresford seventeen
Aidan O'Brien is responsible for nine of the 17 horses still contention for the Juddmonte Beresford Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
Aidan O'Brien: Plenty of Beresford options
The Ballydoyle maestro has saddled a record 15 previous winners of the prestigious juvenile prize, including the last five, and looks set to launch another strong assault.
O'Brien's formidable squad includes the exciting Capri, winner of a Listed event at Tipperary last month, the beautifully-bred course and distance scorer Yucatan and Douglas Macarthur, who was turned over at odds-on at Leopardstown earlier in the month.
Jessica Harrington has interestingly supplemented impressive Listowel scorer Escape Clause, while Firey Speech is respected for Dermot Weld and Moyglare Stud Farm.
There are plenty of familiar names among 18 sprinters in the mix for the Group Three Renaissance Stakes earlier in the afternoon.
Gordon Lord Byron, Sole Power and Toscanini are potential runners for the home team, with Kevin Ryan's Goken and the Henry Candy-trained La Rioja part of the British contingent.
Group Three honours are also up for grabs in the C.L. & M.F. Weld Park Stakes.
Weld's Eziyra is possibly the pick of the Irish-trained contenders, while Charlie Appleby has a couple of major players in Grecian Light and Wuheida.
Stamina will be paramount in the two-mile Sycamore Lodge Equine Hospital Loughbrown Stakes.
Possibles include Royal Ascot heroine Jennies Jewel, the long-absent Forgotten Rules and Noel Meade's recent Listowel winner Snow Falcon.
