Lyric Of Light: Green light for Guineas and will join stablemate Discourse

Sky Bet

Lyric Of Light will join stablemate Discourse in the field for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas after shining in a racecourse gallop on Newmarket's Rowley Mile.

The Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained filly, unbeaten as a juvenile including in the Fillies' Mile, worked over the course and distance of the Classic on Sunday morning.

Ridden by Willie Rovetto, she worked in companion with two stablemates and sprinted five lengths clear two furlongs out.

Her stablemate Discourse, who also completed a racecourse gallop last week, will join her in a fortnight.

"Lyric Of Light did a good piece of work which will have helped her get ready for the Guineas," Al Zarooni told www.godolphin.com.

"I am looking forward to running Lyric Of Light and Discourse in the Guineas but we need a lot of luck."

Al Zarooni won the Classic last year with Blue Bunting.
