The Joseph O'Brien trained maiden winner Patrick Sarsfield has been installed as the 6/1 antepost favourite with sponsors Paddy Power ahead of next week's Irish Lincolnshire Handicap at the Curragh.

The four-year-old, purchased out of Eddie Lynam's yard for £230,000 last July, won his maiden readily at odds of 1/5 over the course and distance at the Curragh in October.

The weights are topped by Broad Street which has moved from Dermot Weld to luke Comer.

There are 44 entries for the event which takes place on Friday June 12 at the Curragh but only 18 horses can run under maximum field restrictions in place for behind closed doors racing.

The Damien English trained Trading Point finished second in the race last year when the race was held in Naas.

The total prize money on offer for next week's race is down from €100,000 in recent years to €75,000.
