Verdict

Aidan O'Brien: "We are delighted with him. He was very green and learnt an awful lot there. His father (Henrythenavigator) and mother (Peeping Fawn) won four Group Ones each, so he is very well bred. He could well go to Royal Ascot. I was afraid he might be a bit babyish, but he got a lovely lead and loves the fast ground."
