Four-time Group 1 winner Paddington (GB) (Siyouni {Fr}) continues to thrive ahead of the Aug. 23 G1 Juddmonte International at York, Aidan O'Brien confirmed on Saturday.

The consistent Coolmore runner is six-for-seven and has won the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas, G1 St James's Palace S., the G1 Eclipse and the G1 Sussex S. in succession.

“He's good and everything is good so far with him. The Juddmonte is still the plan,” said O'Brien.

Ballydoyle's master trainer also had an update on G1 Derby and G1 Irish Derby hero Auguste Rodin (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}), who ran too poorly to be true in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth S. at Ascot last out. The G1 Royal Bahrain Irish Champion S. at Leopardstown during Irish Champions Weekend in September is next for the 2022 G1 Vertem Futurity Trophy s. victor.

He added, “He's good and he's on the Leopardstown programme at the moment. He's done two or three pieces and everything has been lovely so far.”
