Ballydoyle’s Group One winner Misty For Me heads the 21 entries for Sunday’s Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien’s filly won the Moyglare Stud Stakes before following up in the Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp on Arc day. Her stable have also entered Empowering, Juliet Capulet, Together and Wild Wind. John Oxx has entered Manieree, History Note and Redskin Dancer, while Dermot Weld relies on Midnight Music and Zaminast. Deire Na Sli, Gossamer Seed and Seeharn are others that could feature.

Roderic O’Connor leads the entrants for the Leopardstown 2000 Guineas Trial Stakes, also on Sunday. The colt finished second to Frankel in the Dewhurst Stakes before winning the Criterium International in France on his final outing as a juvenile. He faces stiff competition from Kevin Prendergast’s Dunboyne Express and Mawaakef and the Ballydoyle pair of Exodus and High Ruler. A Word Apart, Cocozza, Imperial Rome and Whipless complete the entries for this race.
