Find out who will take on Magical in Sunday's Tattersalls Gold Cup
Star mare Magical may have bypassed her Ascot rematch with Enable this Saturday, but the fabulous five-time Group 1 winner will still bid to light up this weekend's action at the Curragh when she takes on five rivals in Sunday's Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup (2.55).
Paddy Power makes last year's seven-length winner a 1-3 chance to repeat the feat under jockey Wayne Lordan.
Stablemate Sir Dragonet, who earlier this week also featured among six Aidan O'Brien-trained entries for tomorrow's King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes, will join Magical at the Kildare venue on Sunday.
His presence in the six-strong line-up means there will be a rematch of the Dubai Duty Free-backed Alleged Stakes with the Joseph O'Brien-trained Buckhurst, who produced a smart display to get the better of last year's beaten Investec Derby favourite four weeks ago.
This year's Derby-winning rider Emmet McNamara will partner Sir Dragonet, while Declan McDonogh steps in for the ride on Buckhurst.
The Ballydoyle triple-threat is completed by Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas fourth Armory, who missed the Epsom and Chantilly Classics having not passed his final tests at declaration time earlier this month. Padraig Beggy will take the ride.
Comer Group International Irish St. Leger heroine Search For A Song, the mount of Oisin Orr, will bid to get back on track after slipping on a bend and departing the Munster Oaks field early on at Cork three weeks ago.
Jessica Harrington's Leo De Fury, an impressive winner of the Group 2 Mooresbridge Stakes last month, steps up to Group 1 company for the first time and will be partnered by the in-form Shane Foley.

Billesdon Brook in action on ITV4
Richard Hannon will be hoping narrow Falmouth Stakes runner-up Billesdon Brook can register her first victory of the season as she drops in class and faces ten rivals in the Group 3 Betfred Valiant Fillies' Stakes (3.05) at Ascot.
The 2018 1,000 Guineas winner will face stern competition though, not least from the undefeated Miss O Connor, who won all four starts last season for William Haggas.
The Group 3 Princess Margaret Betfred Stakes (3.40) pits a group of seven talented juvenile fillies against one another, with several boasting impressive Royal Ascot form.
Caroline Dale was third in what is working out to be a red-hot Queen Mary and she will take on Isabella Giles, who is unbeaten in two starts for trainer Clive Cox.
