Cayenne Pepper and Epsom Oaks runner up Ennistymon are set to clash in Saturday's Juddmonte Irish Oaks at the Curragh.

The Jessica Harrington-trained Cayenne Pepper is the pre-race favourite after a strong showing in the Pretty Polly Stakes last month.

Ennistymon leads a four-strong challenge for the champion trainer Aidan O'Brien with Snow, Laburnum and Passion also among this entries. O'Brien's son Joseph saddling New York Girl.

The Ger Lyons-trained pair of Yaxeni and Even So feature among the fillies who will face the starter in the 12-furlong  Classic.

Seven two-year-olds will contest the Group 2 GAIN Railway Stakes with Merchants Quay, Law Of Indices, Lucky Vega and To Glory among the contenders.

The Joseph O’Brien-trained pair of Master Of Reality and Twilight Payment feature among the six runners in the Comer Group International Curragh Cup with the Aidan O’Brien-trained Memorabilis, Camphor, trained by Jessica Harrington and the Luke Comer-trained pair of Cypress Creek and Giuseppe Garibaldi also contesting the race.

Classic and Group 1 winner Romanised is one of seven runners and a leading fancy in the Paddy Power Minstrel Stakes, with Aidan O’Brien’s Lancaster House among the opposition as Ken Condon’s charge looks to win the Group 2 race for the second successive year.
