Caravaggio makes his eagerly-awaited reappearance

He holds a host of big-race entries, ranging from the Irish 2,000 Guineas to the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, for which he is currently ante-post favourite at around 4-1.

O’Brien is also represented by Pedestal, who has an even longer absence to overcome.


His last race came at Royal Ascot where he was third in the Windsor Castle Stakes.

Leading the opposition is Jessica Harrington’s Khukri, who got his 2017 campaign off to a flying start with victory in the Listed Power Stakes at Navan four weeks ago.

Is the QIPCO 2000 Guineas a good pointer towards a Derby winner?

Harrington also saddles Tinder, with the line-up completed by Mister Trader, Mr Scarlet, Psychedelic Funk, Gorane and Virtudes.
