High Definition to Improve From Dante


Aidan O'Brien | Emma Berry

Erstwhile G1 Cazoo Derby hopeful High Definition (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) has emerged from his third-place run in the G2 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante S. in good order. Trainer Aidan O'Brien is expecting more improvement from the previously unbeaten G2 Beresford S. victor. The colt had turned in unsatisfactory bloodwork earlier this month which had ruled him out of a start in the Lingfield Derby Trial and instead had seen him re-directed to the Knavesmire.

“High Definition is in good form,” said Aidan O'Brien of the Coolmore parterns/Westerberg runner. “He hasn't done much since York. I was very happy. Four days before he wasn't going to run and he'll come forward plenty.

“We always give them 10 days to two weeks to get back into full work and then see where they are. Ryan [Moore] was very happy with him. The pace died a bit in the middle and it might have suited if it had stayed strong.”

O'Brien stablemate and impressive G3 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial S. winner Bolshoi Ballet (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is currently favoured in the G1 Cazoo Derby markets.
