Ger Lyon’s is yet to saddle a Classic winner during his career, but he has high-hopes for Siskin, who will carry the tag of favouritism into the Irish 2000 Guineas on Friday. 

Siskin racked up four victories on the bounce at two, claiming a hard-fought win in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes on his last start, Following that Group One win, Lyon’s travelled over to Newmarket with Siskin, but was dismayed to see his colt play up in the stalls ahead of the Middle Park Stakes, and Colin Keane’s mount had to be withdrawn from the race.

Unibet make Siskin their 15/8 favourite to win Saturday’s rescheduled running of the Irish 2000 Guineas. But Lyon’s favourite is likely to face stiff competition from one Aidan O’Brien.

Fresh off yet another Classic victory at Newmarket over the weekend, O’Brien looks set to fire a whole quiver of arrows at Friday’s feature event. Armory placed in three Group Ones during the autumn, and he sits closest to Siskin in the current market. Third is stablemate Vatican City, despite the fact he was handed a rating of just 93 following victory on the all-weather track at Dundalk in October.

Innisfree and Mogul haven’t run since finishing second and fourth respectively in the Vertem Futurity Trophy at Newcastle. The form of that Group One was boosted when winner, Kameko scored in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, and both are sure to garner support. 

Royal Lytham crossed the line just a length behind Siskin in the Phoenix Stakes, and could take another crack at the market leader. Lope Y Fernandes and Fort Myers, both pattern race winners in their own right, have also been handed entry into Friday’s Irish 2000 Guineas.

The Aga Khan looks set to have a couple of runners in Friday’s feature, with both Shekham and Sinawann set to carry those famous silks into battle. Joseph O’Brien’s Crosshurricanefire could defend his unbeaten record in the Irish 2000 Guineas, with Fiscal Rules and Free Solo other likely runners on day one of the Irish Guineas Festival.
