Those who thought Sunday's G1 1000 Guineas had produced a shock were made to think again at The Curragh yesterday as Ballydoyle's perennial pacemaker Windsor Palace (Danehill Dancer {Ire}) continued the silly season with a genuine upset G3 Mooresbridge S. at The Curragh. Rated 25 pounds inferior to stable companion and hot favorite St Nicholas Abbey (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}), the 7-year-old had not won since his juvenile campaign and due to his rabbit duties had finished last on three of his prior five starts. He had managed a more promising third when last seen in the G3 Gladness S. over seven furlongs here Apr. 22, but that had been preceded by an unplaced effort, beaten a total of 30 lengths, by the re-opposing Sharestan (Ire) (Shamardal) in the Mar. 25 Irish Lincolnshire H. Enjoying a lead here from Robin Hood (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) as the pair raced in isolation, the blinkered bay took over from that barnmate with 2 1/2 furlongs remaining with Joseph O'Brien still sitting pretty on last year's GI Breeders' Cup Turf hero. Sharestan was asked to narrow the sizeable deficit first by Johnny Murtagh, but he was unable to pick up strongly enough and by the time St Nicholas Abbey was wound up it was all too late.
   "The last thing Joseph wanted to do was murder St Nic on his first run back from Dubai," Aidan O'Brien said of the runner-up, who is bound for Epsom in a bid to defend his crown in the June 2 G1 Coronation Cup.
