Minding left in Matron Stakes

Minding still has two options at Leopardstown on Saturday after being left in the Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes.

Minding: Still has two options

The six-times Group One winner, trained by Aidan O'Brien, has also stood her ground in the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes on the same card.

Connections are leaning towards taking on the colts in the mile-and-a quarter showpiece, but are keeping their options open.

O'Brien has two other possibles for the Matron in Alice Springs and Somehow after 12 remained in the mile contest for fillies and mares.

Jet Setting, who defeated Minding in the Irish 1000 Guineas, could bid for more Group One success while the French are well represented with Jean-Claude Rouget's Coronation Stakes winner Qemah and Francis Graffard's Volta.

The extremely progressive Persuasive, trained by John Gosden, could get her chance at the top level after going through the ranks in style with a perfect record of five out of five.

Kevin Ryan's Ashadihan and Hawksmoor, trained by Hugo Palmer, are the two other British-trained representatives.

The dozen confirmations are made up by Creggs Pipes, Devonshire and Now Or Never.
