Gleneagles spearheads Guineas field

Aidan O'Brien's Newmarket hero Gleneagles heads a field of 11 declared for the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Saturday.

The son of Galileo, who bids to join an illustrious band of colts to complete the Guineas double, has been allotted stall two and will again be ridden by Ryan Moore.

O'Brien also saddles Smuggler's Cove (Seamie Heffernan) and The Warrior (Joseph O'Brien) as he attempts to land the prize for a record 10th time.

Ivawood, who finished third behind Gleneagles at Newmarket, renews rivalry.

Richard Hannon's speedy colt is joined by stable companion Lexington Times.

There is a third British challenger in the Roger Varian-trained Dewhurst winner Belardo, who disappointed on his seasonal debut in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury last month.

Ger Lyons is double-handed with Convergence and Endless Drama, with the list completed by Carbon Dating, Mohaayed and Tombelaine.
