Australia: Found life a little easier than the nation's cricket team at Lord's

Australia got off the mark at the second attempt with victory in the Darley European Breeders Fund Maiden at the Curragh.

Second first time out after missing the break and losing lengths at the start, Aidan O'Brien's beautifully-bred Galileo son of Ouija Board had flown home to just get touched off.

Again a little tardy from the gates, he was moved up by Joseph O'Brien to track the front-running Billboard.

Asked to quicken over two furlongs out, the 3/10 favourite looked like going easily clear but in the end was driven out to beat Dermot Weld's newcomer Carla Bianca by three-quarters of a length.

The winning trainer said: "He is still very babyish. He was slow away again and he seems to go asleep in the stalls. We will take our time with him. He could be anything as the penny hasn't really dropped with him yet. He has a lot of talent."
