Verdict

Agreement didn't show much on his debut at Dundalk in September and with Joseph O'Brien choosing the dual Derby entry VICTORY SONG it's assumed he will be the Ballydoyle first string. A son of Galileo and a half-brother to the Oaks runner-up Wonder Of Wonders, he'll have to take this doing handstands to justify his classic entries. Bunreacht was expected to finish in front of stablemate We'll Go Walking at Gowran but ran poorly and is best watched but Dubai Deer has steadily improved and this longer trip should bring out the best in him. Jan Van Eyck may have to wait for a handicap before finally getting off the mark.
