Five Face Love in The King George

Aidan O'Brien cut his team for the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco S. to two on Thursday, with last year's G1 1000 Guineas and G1 Epsom Oaks and June 16 G1 Prince of Wales's S. heroine Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) joined only by the July 4 G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}). Wayne Lordan takes the ride on the latter, who currently trades as the outsider of the six-strong field to underline the quality of Saturday's renewal. It will be likely stripped of...

Love in Good Order For King George

Dual Classic heroine Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who won the G1 Prince of Wales's S.  at Royal Ascot in June, is in good form in advance of the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. on July 24. The Coolmore partners runner claimed the G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas, G1 Investec Oaks, and G1 Yorkshire Oaks in a three-for-three campaign in 2020. "The plan at the moment is that we're looking at running Love in the King George," trainer Aidan O'Brien said from The Curragh. "Mogul (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) and...

Group 1 Glory At Last For Australia's Broome

Coming closest in five attempts at group 1 success on his latest in the May 23 G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup, Ballydoyle's Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}) finally made it count on Sunday leading with every step under Colin Keane in the G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. Sporting the silks of Masaaki Matsushima, the 5-year-old who had been second to Wonderful Tonight (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}) in the June 19 G2 Hardwicke S. at Royal Ascot since that narrow Curragh reversal was unperturbed by being asked to take up front-running duties. Stretching...

Starman Set to Miss Jubilee

Thursday to Friday at Royal Ascot was like chalk and cheese and now that the meeting has become chopped in two by the unprecedented rainstorm there is only need for mudlarks to apply for Saturday's finale. Just as David Ward's Primo Bacio (Ire) (Awtaad {Ire}) was pulled out of the G1 Coronation S. on Friday, so there must be a major doubt as to whether his Starman (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) will be allowed to take part in Saturday's G1 Diamond Jubilee S. Looking the one to beat before the...

Broome's Brother A New Rising Star At The Curragh

As Derby week heads towards the blue riband itself, Aidan O'Brien launched one who could conceivably be a headline act for the 2022 version in Point Lonsdale (Ire) (Australia {GB}) who proved enormously impressive at The Curragh. Sent off the 7-4 favourite for the card's opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden for colts and geldings over seven furlongs, the full-brother to the stable's multiple group winner Broome (Ire) who cost 575,000gns at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 was quick to dispute the lead with the experienced Barud (GB)...

Love Out of Coronation Cup, Will Wait For Royal Ascot

Dual Classic heroine Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) will no longer take part in the G1 Coral Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs on June 4, according to trainer Aidan O'Brien. A winner of the G1 1000 Guineas, G1 Oaks and G1 Yorkshire Oaks, the blaze-faced chestnut has been benched since August as her intended targets keep having unsuitable ground on the day. She will instead point to the G1 Prince Of Wales's S. at Royal Ascot later this month, as she has not made her seasonal bow yet. "Everything is good...

Tattersalls Gold Cup Glory For Helvic Dream

Beaten three times by Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}) already this term, Tom Hendron and Finbar Cahill's Helvic Dream (Ire) (Power {GB}) had been inching closer each time and chose the big occasion to turn it around as he denied that Ballydoyle rival in a thriller for the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup on Sunday. Benefitting from the heavily rain-eased going at The Curragh, the 4-year-old who emanates from the Noel Meade stable better known for its national hunt runners travelled smoothly on the inside in mid-division throughout the early stages. Filling...

Australia's Broome Extends Tally In the Mooresbridge

Providing Aidan O'Brien with a 12th renewal of The Curragh's G2 Coolmore Sottsass Irish EBF Mooresbridge S. on Monday, Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}) continued his own success story with a third black-type win in 2021. Having taken the Listed Devoy S. at Naas Mar. 28 and the Apr. 17 G3 Alleged S. over this track and 10-furlong trip, the 4-9 favourite was forwardly placed in second by Ryan Moore and ridden to take command approaching the last two furlongs. Pressed by Helvic Dream (Ire) (Power {GB}) from there, he kept...
