Drama may take direct Royal route

Ger Lyons could be tempted to send Endless Drama straight to Royal Ascot.

Although the Lope De Vega colt holds an entry in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh later this month, the County Meath handler may bypass the mile Classic in favour of heading directly to the St James's Palace Stakes.

After winning a Naas maiden on his debut in October, Endless Drama has since finished second in the Leopardstown 2,000 Guineas Trial and, most recently, in the Tetrarch Stakes at the Curragh.

Lyons said: "I'm not sure which way we will go - he hasn't won a Listed race yet.

"He's been in good form since the Curragh. At the minute, he's in the Guineas, but he could go straight for the St James's Palace at Royal Ascot.

"We will have to have a good think about it."
