Aiden O'Brien sends three runners to the Group Two Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown on Saturday in the form of Capulet, Diego Velazquez and Democracy. The latter arrives at this contest as the least fancied of the O'Brien trio, which seems to be justified, having followed a debut win at Curragh with finishes of sixth, seventh, seventh and fourth since that success. Those runs have come at a variety of levels, but he has failed to make his mark in both grouped and listed contests.
He feels like an unlikely victor here. Christophe Soumillon will do the steering.
