Aidan O’Brien has the choice of running either of his leading contenders for next year’s Stan James 1000 Guineas in the Ballygallon Stud Debutante Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

You’resothrilling, winner of the Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket on her latest start, and the unbeaten and once-raced Listen are the top two in the betting for the 2008 Classic.

They are also entered in the Group One Independent Waterford Wedgwood Phoenix Stakes on the same card at the Curragh, but it is probable they will not take each other on at this stage.

Jim Bolger is responsible for five of the 13 entries – Suantrai, Solas Na Greine, Saoirse Abu, Prima Luce and Allicansayis Wow – while Tommy Stack could run either Triskel and Ariege.

The unbeaten Sharleez for John Oxx and the Aga Khan may be another of interest.
