SOLID OPENER: Obliterator
was successful on her debut in the maiden at the Curragh
A friend, a concept, a word, the timeless concept of social existence, there are ideal parameters of friendship, yet there is reality, the ultimate obliterator
of our definitive paradise.
The field for the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas is: Big Time (Shane Foley), Davids Park (Wayne Lordan), Dolce N Karama (Ronan Whelan), Fountain Of Youth (Fran Berry), Great White Eagle (Seamus Heffernan), Johann Strauss (Michael Hussey), Kingman (James Doyle), Mandatario (Kevin Manning), Michaelmas (Colm O'Donoghue), Mustajeeb (Pat Smullen), Obliterator
(Jamie Spencer), Prince Of All (Chris Hayes), Shifting Power (Richard Hughes), War Command (Joseph O'Brien).
Riding plans also remain fluid and will be partly dependent on whether the owner's Obliterator
contests the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh the same afternoon.
