looked in good order and bounced back from his poor showing in the Guineas, looking every bit the hugely exciting prospect he'd seemed when winning the Superlative and Dewhurst at 2 yrs, his forward move early in the straight so eyecatching, while his strong finish showing that he relished the extra distance, and that despite having taken a grip for so long, likely to take the beating in the best middle-distance races in Britain/Ireland for the rest of the campaign, though the Travers Stakes was suggested as a target (given he's by a US Triple Crown winner, no surprise connections might seek a win in a top dirt race, the Breeders' Cup Classic later in the year another option); held up, took strong hold, short of room briefly before straight, effort soon after, rapid headway 3f out, led over 2f out, in command soon after and kept on well inside final 1f despite edging up the camber (took plenty of pulling up after line); he leaves the impression he can go to another level in terms of form in the right circumstances.

who sweated up at the start and gave trouble going into stalls, lost his unbeaten record but ran a fine race, doing well considering he helped force the pace, just running out of steam late on, though with loads of stamina in his pedigree and a substantial physique, a programme involving the Irish Derby and St Leger seems likely; close up, travelled well, led entering straight, ridden 3f out, headed over 2f out, no extra final 1f; open to further improvement.

A Derby field lacking 3 of the most significant trial winners, the Dante winner Economics, who would have needed to be supplemented, the sidelined Arabian Crown and the ill-fated Hidden Law, as well as any of the first few home in the 2000 Guineas, though for the second year running the favourite in the Newmarket classic returned from a poor run there to land the spoils, in doing so City of Troy giving his trainer Aidan O'Brien a tenth win in the Blue Riband of the turf, and potentially the most significant for the breed since his first, Galileo, who has now featured as the sire or damsire of O'Brien's last 6 Derby winners; City of Troy had been a really good 2-y-o and he beat a pair of notable trial winners this spring, the field fairly well strung out behind them, which suggests the form overall is up to standard for the race, the fifth the only real concern, though he, like all bar 2 of the runners, was stepping up to around 1½m for the first time, improvement clearly not out of the question; the winner's stable companions ensured the race was well run, the performance of the third probably worth marking up, the race itself a particularly clean one, with only very minor incidents of trouble in running, and that despite Voyage losing his rider at the start and running loose in front of the field for much of the way.

CITY OF TROY (USA) looked in good order and bounced back from his poor showing in the Guineas, looking every bit the hugely exciting prospect he'd seemed when winning the Superlative and Dewhurst at 2 yrs, his forward move early in the straight so eyecatching, while his strong finish showing that he relished the extra distance, and that despite having taken a grip for so long, likely to take the beating in the best middle-distance races in Britain/Ireland for the rest of the campaign, though the Travers Stakes was suggested as a target (given he's by a US Triple Crown winner, no surprise connections might seek a win in a top dirt race, the Breeders' Cup Classic later in the year another option); held up, took strong hold, short of room briefly before straight, effort soon after, rapid headway 3f out, led over 2f out, in command soon after and kept on well inside final 1f despite edging up the camber (took plenty of pulling up after line); he leaves the impression he can go to another level in terms of form in the right circumstances.

AMBIENTE FRIENDLY (IRE) sweating beforehand, was the pick on this year's form alone and fully confirmed that, just no match for an outstanding 2-y-o returning to the top of his game, impressing with the way he went though the race but unable to find the same turn of foot as the winner, slightly caught behind the loose horse once City of Troy shot by; in touch, tanked along, smooth headway early in straight, every chance over 2f out, shaken up, left behind by winner, kept on well final 1f, made no impression on winner; he's in the Edward VII and might try and emulate last year's runner-up King of Steel who went on to win that race.
