JUSTIFIER (IRE) (c, 2, Free Eagle {Ire}–Pale Orchid {Ire}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}), the 9-2 second favourite for this debut, travelled easily behind the leading trio throughout the early stages. Staying on to overhaul Potala Palace (GB) (Dansili {GB}) inside the last 100 yards, the chestnut had a length to spare over that rival at the line. In doing so, he becomes the first winner for his first-season sire (by High Chaparral {Ire}) who stands at the Irish National Stud for a fee of €12,500. The useful sprinting dam, who has a yearling filly by Mehmas (Ire), is out of the G1 Moyglare Stud S. scorer Chelsea Rose (Ire) (Desert King {Ire}) who in turn produced last year's G1 St Leger and G1 Grand Prix de Paris hero Kew Gardens (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and the G3 Prix de Ris-Orangis winner and G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest runner-up Thawaany (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}). Sales history: €60,000 Ylg '18 GOFOR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $12,170. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
