Clemmie and Happily spearhead Aidan O’Brien’s quest to win the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh for an eighth time.

Happily has already run in one Classic this season, when third in the English equivalent at Newmarket.

A setback in the spring prevented Clemmie from running there and O’Brien has stressed the Cheveley Park winner will come on a good deal for the run. Could It Be Love also represents Ballydoyle.

Charlie Appleby’s Soliloquy, the Nell Gwyn winner who was sixth at Newmarket, is the only British-trained runner.

Lightening Quick will have her first start for Johnny Murtagh and the assistance of Jamie Spencer, while her former trainer Ger Lyons runs the supplemented Who’s Steph.

Chiara Luna, Alghabrah and Alpha Centauri are also among the final 13.
