Recent winner Say is among the Matron line-up

Elusive Kate has not been declared for the Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on Saturday.

John Gosden's four-times Group One scorer had been in the frame to travel to Ireland, but connections have instead chosen to abort the mission.

A strong 12-runner field has still been declared for the Group One over a mile.

French raider Kenhope is arguably the most interesting horse in the line-up. The three-year-old filly finished second to Sky Lantern in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, after which she claimed third spot behind Elusive Kate in the Prix Rothschild in July.

Aidan O'Brien saddles three runners in recent Curragh scorer Say, Just Pretending and Magical Dream, while Jim Bolger will be represented by Scintillula.

Fiesolana, trained by Willie McCreery, was supplemented for the Matron on Monday after she won the Fairy Bridge Stakes at Tipperary.

Lady Cecil sends Chigun to Ireland from her stables in Newmarket. The four-year-old filly was successful in a Group Three at the Curragh in May.

Caponata reverts to a mile after she finished second in the Royal Whip Stakes at the Curragh last month, with Wannabe Better set for a brisk return to action after she struck in Listed company at Killarney a week and a half ago.

The popular Lily's Angel has her first start in a Group One since May 2012, with La Collina still in the hat for the Kevin Prendergast team.

One Spirit was fifth behind Say in the Group Three Dance Design Stakes last week and also tries her luck at the top table.
