McDonnell's Bar June Fest Silver Stakes (Listed) | 3yo+ | 1m2f | ATR 

The occasion will pale in comparison to their Irish 1,000 Guineas triumph with Alpha Centauri last month but Jessica Harrington and Colm O'Donoghue are hoping this Listed event will give I'm So Fancy her day in the sun.

Although the four-year-old daughter of Rajj has only one win – a maiden at Navan as a juvenile – to her credit, she has been placed at Group 3 and Listed level.

Harrington said: "I'm So Fancy has earned some black type but we'd love to get some big black type for her.

"We're running her as often as we can to achieve that and she ran well last time when third in the Victor McCalmont Memorial at Gowran Park.

"She goes on any ground and is in very good form. If she wins tomorrow that will be job done."

Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning landed the race with Glamorous Approach a year ago and are represented by Theobald, who brings Classic form having finished seventh behind Romanised in the Irish 2,000 Guineas two weeks ago.

The son of Teofilo was a dual winner last season and also placed twice at Group 3 level.

Aidan O'Brien, who is represented by Sizzling and Easter Lily, said: "We were expecting more than they've shown so far this year and we're just hoping they will improve and maybe pick up some black type."

Sizzling beat only one home in the Gallinule Stakes over course and distance on her most recent start last month, while Easter Lily failed to reach the first four in three attempts this year.

Ger Lyons is represented by Mustajeer, who finished fourth in the Group 2 Mooresbridge Stakes over this trip at Naas on his first start of the campaign last month, and eight-year-old Tennessee Wildcat, a five-time winner making a quick reappearance after finishing fourth in the Listed Glencairn Stakes at Leopardstown on Thursday.
