Published 02/08/2016


Aidan O'Brien's exciting youngster Caravaggio is among the 10 two-year-olds in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

Ante-post market leader for the 2000 Guineas, the unbeaten winner of Royal Ascot's Coventry Stakes is one six possibles for the Group One over six furlongs hailing from the O'Brien yard.

The others are headed by Derby favourite Churchill, winner of the Chesham Stakes at the Royal meeting and the Group Three Tyros Stakes at Leopardstown.

Courage Under Fire, Edgar Allan Poe, Intelligence Cross and Duchess of Cambridge Stakes scorer Roly Poly complete the Ballydoyle squad.

O'Brien's son Joseph is represented by Ambiguity, while Ger Lyons has left in his Railway Stakes victor Medicine Jack.

The John Murphy-trained Confrontational and Johnny Murtagh's Grand Coalition are also in contention.
