Billesdon Brook could be supplemented for the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday.

Richard Hannon’s filly was a surprise winner of the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket earlier in the month and is now under consideration to complete the Classic double.

Hannon told At The Races: “Billesdon Brook is in great form.

“You’ve got the Irish Guineas, you’ve got the Prix de Diane (French Oaks), you’ve got the Coronation (Stakes at Royal Ascot).

“It’s pretty much all about the supplementary conditions. We’re discussing with the owners, and we’ll see where we go.

“We just need to get the money together!”

Mick Channon is hoping for a bit of rain at the Curragh to aid Dan’s Dream’s chances.

Winner of the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury, she could finish only 10th in the Guineas at Newmarket on quick ground.

“As long as everything goes OK she’ll go,” sad Channon.

“She’s come back well after the Guineas and while we’d love a bit of rain over there, there’s not much we can do about that.

“So as long as everything goes all right between now and then it is full steam ahead.”

The Cityscape filly is part-owned by sporting legends Sir Ian Botham and Sir Gareth Edwards, with all prize-money Dan’s Dream earns going to the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation.
