OZONE proved a very disappointing favourite for a Gowran Park nursery on Monday but testing going could easily have been to blame and Joseph O’Brien’s youngster looks worth supporting to bounce back quickly in the 1m contest at 2.35 at Leopardstown.
The son of Camelot had marked himself down as a likely future winner when staying on strongly to take third behind today’s rival Nikeandnemesis on good ground at Navan on his penultimate start, but the writing was on the wall shortly after turning for home last time and he wasn’t given a hard time when his chance had gone.
However, everything looks in place for him to show that form to be all wrong on Saturday’s better ground. Alan Persse, who was on board at Navan, can claim a useful 7lb off bottom weight and the stall one draw should allow him to give his mount a more positive ride this time.
