Verdict

Aidan O'Brien: "He's a lazy horse. He doesn't mind going along in front and there's always plenty there when you want it. He has plenty of pace and he's able to get a position. He's a very straightforward Montjeu - he can get a position early, travel along and he can be tough at the end. He's lazy, that's why he wears the cheekpieces. It helps him from being too lazy early on. He's a possible for Ascot or the Irish Derby. He wouldn't mind 10 furlongs, a mile and a half or even two miles - I don't think it matters to him."
