Royal Ascot heroine can strike for the Irish trainer in key Arc de Triomphe trial at Longchamp on Sunday
One of the unusual features of this Flat season has been the recent Group One drought endured by Aidan O’Brien, whose most recent success at the highest level is now fully two months ago, when Kew Gardens won the Grand Prix de Paris. Ballydoyle’s virus troubles became a familiar topic last month but they now seem to be over, judging by 17 wins in the past fortnight at a strike-rate of 33%.
This weekend brings a hatful of Group One races and, although the final entries are not available for Sunday as I type, O’Brien looks likely to have more than 20 runners in top-class races over the next two days, in Britain, Ireland and France.
