Aidan O’Brien has landed nine Group 1 contests so far this season, including the 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby, Irish Derby and Grand Prix de Paris, and here he updates Kevin Blake of attheraces.com with big-race targets for his stable stars who will be representing him at the major meetings throughout the remainder of the season.
Rated 119, he won the Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp and the St Leger at Doncaster last year. He finished a close second in the Coronation Cup at Epsom on his most recent start.
He has had a break since his last run and is on the way back. He’ll go away to work shortly. He’ll be one that could go straight to the Irish St Leger without a run between now and then.
