Siskin will face four rivals as he aims to give trainer Ger Lyons a first domestic Group One winner in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Friday.
While Lightning Pearl won the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket for Lyons, he is still waiting for a top-level win on home soil.
In Siskin he appears to have his best chance to date. Unbeaten in three races so far, the Khalid Abdullah-owned juvenile will be a warm order to keep his perfect start going.
the main threat will come from Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle yard, but not through Coventry Stakes winner Arizona, who misses the race.
Instead, O’Brien relies on Monarch Of Egypt, over two lengths behind Siskin in the Railway Stakes, July Stakes winner Royal Lytham and Mount Fuji.
Completing the line-up is John Murphy’s Think Big, who got off the mark at the third time of asking at Down Royal recently.
