The first of the Irish classics takes place at The Curragh this afternoon with the 2000 Guineas over one mile at 3.20. Nine runners chase a first prize of €290,000. Aidan O Brien relies on just Ivy League while the favourite is the English entry Native Trail trained by Charlie Appleby. Native Trail lost nothing in defeat finishing a close up second in the Newmarket Guineas and while he should win on that form there is little or no value in his price of 4/11.

Mosala who rarely runs a bad race and Annexation are the Butlerstown trainer's runners in the 4.30.
