‘We were delighted with him.

We felt he had made very good progress since Ascot,’ said O’Brien.

‘We knew we had to step up from Ascot, but we felt that his work was very good and we were looking forward to seeing him run.

‘ He added: ‘I think the lads will decide that [where he goes next], but he would have the option of the Nunthorpe.

‘We’ll see how he comes out of this race first.’
