Heading the market for Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore, the Irish trainer is only sending one dart this year so it’s no surprise to see him as the early favourite.
Debuting at the Curragh over 7 furlongs only 17 days ago, he made the perfect start to life despite having to be shoved along after half a mile.
When the penny dropped and he stretched out, he powered clear by 5.5 lengths like a really classy animal.
He’s a full brother to Broome, who came 4th in the 2019 derby and handles soft ground, so has class in his blood. A 575,000 guineas purchase for a stable that have won 3 of the last 5 runnings of this race.
Warrants the utmost respect.
