Jet Setting inflicted a shock defeat on Minding in the Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Minding was a red-hot 4-11 favourite following her runaway victory in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket three weeks ago.

Jet Setting (9-1), trained by Adrian Keatley, was back in ninth at Newmarket, but emphatically reversed the form under Shane Foley to claim Classic glory by a head, with Now Or Never 10 lengths back in third.

The winner was supplemented for the race on Monday at a cost of €30,000.

"It's a dream come true," said Foley.

"She's a tough little filly and the ground came right for her - she ran a blinder at Newmarket but it was too fast for her

"Soft ground and a stiff mile was ideal for her."
