Phoenix Of Spain was a surprise winner of the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas, defeating Too Darn Hot for Charlie Hills and Jamie Spencer.
The Classic had been billed as a showdown between 6-4 joint-favourites Magna Grecia, winner of the 2,000 Guineas, and Too Darn Hot, who was rerouted to the race after being beaten in the Dante Stakes at York, which serves as a primary trial for the Investec Derby.
But instead Phoenix Of Spain, a 16-1 shot, cut out most of the running under Spencer and, despite Frankie Dettori travelling well into the race on Too Darn Hot, the pair had no answer to the winner through the final furlong.
Third went to Decrypt, with 2,000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia in trouble a fair way from home.
Kieran Cotter sent out his second two-year-old winner of the season with Daughter In Law showing blistering speed to take the opening Foran Equine Irish EBF Auction Maiden under Nathan Crosse.
Daughter In Law went hard and fast and had her rivals in trouble from a long way out. Her easy win earned her a quote of 50-1 for the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot, which will come under strong consideration, according to Cotter.
