No favorite had won the G3 Jersey S. at Royal Ascot since Mozart (Ire) in 2001, but it was a colt from the same stable in the same silks with a similar profile who ended the long wait here. Runner-up to Reckless Abandon (GB) (Exchange Rate) in the G2 Norfolk S. over five furlongs here 12 months ago, Gale Force Ten followed two indifferent starts on testing ground with a third placing in the G1 Middle Park S. over six furlongs to round off his juvenile campaign at Newmarket in October. After returning to win the seven-furlong Listed Patton S. on Dundalk’s Polytrack Apr. 5, the bay was fourth in a blanket finish to the G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains at Longchamp May 12 before going to The Curragh 13 days later to emulate Mozart by finishing second in the G1 Irish 2,000 Guineas. Enjoying a perfect tow early from compatriot Dont Bother Me (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), he was left in front with 2 1/2 furlongs remaining and, despite being headed by Montiridge inside the final eighth, battled back for Joseph O’Brien in the final yards as the stand’s side "winner" Tawhid threw away his chance by veering left. "He’s very tough, but I was praying someone would come to me because he wasn’t doing a stroke in front," his rider explained. " He got a mile very well at the Curragh, so that’s why I didn’t want to get too far back but I got to the front a mile too soon. When he saw the other horse he put his head down and fought. He’s small but he has a big heart." Michael Tabor added, "We were very hopeful that he’d be good enough despite being drawn poorly and he was very game, which is what you would expect of Aidan’s horses. He looked like he was beaten and came again."
