Two recent Aidan O'Brien-trained Classic winners lead the way in the Group 1 Coolmore America 'Justify' Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.

Snowfall, the runaway winner of the Cazoo Oaks at Epsom and her stable companion Joan Of Arc, successful in the Prix de Diane Longines at Chantilly, are among a Ballydoyle entry of eight that also includes Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Empress Josephine.

The Joseph O'Brien-trained Thundering Nights beat his father’s Santa Barbara to land the Group 1 Alwasmiyah Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday and both could renew rivalry at Leopardstown as could the Andrew Balding-trained Alcohol Free, Richard Hannon’s Snow Lantern and Aidan O'Brien’s Mother Earth, the first three fillies home in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Johnny Murtagh has entered last year’s winner Champers Elysees and the ever-improving Create Belief while Jessica Harrington’s Alpine Star, the Joseph O'Brien-trained Pretty Gorgeous and the Pascal Bary-trained Tahlie are other notable entries.
