   Despite completing the difficult feat of winning the 2,000 Guineas and Epsom and Irish Derbies last term, Camelot stayed in the shadow of the peerless Frankel (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), and by the time he had finished on a sour note by losing out on a Triple Crown in the G1 St. Leger and making no impact in Paris in the G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, there was a definite feeling of anti-climax. With the Juddmonte giant at stud, it is safe to say that aside from Cirrus des Aigles (Fr) (Even Top {Ire}) Camelot is the most high-profile older horse in training this year, and he stayed true to the early part of the script with a straightforward score on this return. Switched off in last early as stable companion Triumphant was sent into a clear lead, the handsome bay was angled wide for his closing effort by Joseph O’Brien in early stretch. Showing all the speed he had demonstrated on his finest days last term, he was able to make up four lengths in the space of a furlong and get to the lead approaching the eighth pole before asserting under a hand ride. Aidan O’Brien was understandably delighted. "He had colic surgery over the winter and it was a very worrying time, so you are never sure first time back," he said. "He came back to us in super shape and you couldn’t believe he had had such major surgery. He retains his speed and Joseph said he will improve a lot, fitness-wise. The plan is to come back here for the [May 26] G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and then the G1 Prince of Wales’s S. [at Royal Ascot June 19] if all is well, but we’ll take it one at a time."
