Horse Racing - Racing: O'Brien considering Curragh challenge

Leading Oaks candidate Tuesday could take in a possible bid for extra Classic glory before her date at Epsom in June, with a tilt at the Irish 1,000 Guineas.

That option is being considered by trainer Aidan O'Brien following her fine effort at Newmarket over the weekend, with Tuesday rated at 7/2 for the Oaks.

The daughter of the late Galileo finished a two-length third under Frankie Dettori behind Cachet in the 1,000 Guineas despite her inexperience on the track, having only won her maiden at the end of March.

Tuesday has two possible routes

That encouraging performance saw her remain a top contender for the Oaks, which will take place on June 3rd, but her Ballydoyle trainer could take in another Classic on the way at the Curragh, before she heads to Epsom.

Tuesday could face the likes of late 1,000 Guineas absentee Mise En Scene, Group 1 winner Discoveries and Sandrine - who ran a respectable race to finish fifth at Newmarket on Sunday - before facing the likes of Emily Upjohn, With The Moonlight and Agave in the Oaks.

One star she will not take on at the Curragh beforehand, however, is 1,000 Guineas heroine Cachet, who could potentially tackle the French equivalent before the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

O'Brien and Dettori delighted

O'Brien said: "Tuesday ran very well and we're delighted. She will go further obviously, so it was a good run from her.

"Frankie (Dettori) was happy enough and the ground was quick, but we know she will stay further and he was happy with the run."

He added: "She has made great progress in the last couple of weeks and that is testament to her character and I couldn't be happier with that. It is possible (the Oaks), but she could go to an Irish 1,000 Guineas on the way."
