Ruler of the World has taken longer than his half-brother Duke of Marmalade (Ire) to create an impact on the track, but he looked as if he was ready to make up for lost time with this power-packed display on Chester’s "Roodeye". Well-supported coming into this Derby trial on the back of a 10-furlong debut win in a maiden at The Curragh Apr. 7, the bay sported cheekpieces and tracked Mister Impatience early with Ryan Moore asking him to extend approaching the home turn. In front at the top of the 1 1/2-furlong straight, he hit top gear soon after and drew clear for an emphatic fourth renewal for Ballydoyle since 2007. "He did it nicely and the race worked out well for him, as he got a nice lead," his rider said. "He’s still a bit green, but once I grabbed hold of him he lengthened really well. He’ll learn a lot and going round here will have done him good." Part-owner Paul Smith added, "Aidan thinks quite a lot of him. He’s been working well at home, but we thought he might be a little bit green and a little bit babyish. I think with the tight, turning track and the crowd, it was a good choice and it paid dividends."
