very hard to do,

He looked like a Derby horse before today, this is a bonus.

Big horse for Tattenham corner. All over the place at the finish there...

Would be great to see. Would love to see a Deep Impact do it as all people remember him for is flopping in the Arc, and he won Japan's triple crown. Brilliant horse, hope his son can pull it off here.

Surely Epsom is a penalty kick .
Report dunlaying May 5, 2018 3:54 PM BST
It has to win The Derby first . Even money for Epsom is too short .

Would be worth an absolute fortune in Japan if he was to retire as an unbeaten triple crown winner.

Agree looks a penalty kick for Epsom, will go off 4/6 on the day.

No reason why it couldn't win the triple crown, Then take in the Arc just for the cherry on top.

Lester almost did it

Won't go for The Leger unless it has little chance in The Arc.
I hope they don't send it back to Japan as the sire line is a very unusual one for Europe. Much needed variety.

Tried it with Camelot didn't they ?

I'd also be surprised if after the Derby they nominate the leger as his next run but at this stage I say they have every option open to them.

The Irish Derby on heavy ground tore the heart and soul out of Camelot -don't think they will make the same mistake with this one.

I'd like to see Saxon Warrior in The Leger, but unlikely, I believe; more chance of running in the Arc, I'd imagine.

Aidan O’Brien has raised the possibility of Saxon Warrior being aimed at the Triple Crown.

An impressive winner of the 2000 Guineas, he will now head to the Investec Derby next month.

If all goes well there it will be off to Doncaster for the oldest Classic of them all, the St Leger, in a quest the Coolmore team so very nearly achieved with Camelot in 2012.

O’Brien watched the race on a computer in a hotel room in America as he was with Mendelssohn in his failed bid in the Kentucky Derby.

“We were watching it from afar but it was unbelievable,” O’Brien told ITV Racing.

“Donnacha (O’Brien) has ridden him in all his work so he knew what he was able to do. He knew the horse better than I did.

“The lads (owners) always had it in their heads he would go for the Guineas and Derby. Donnacha was very happy, too, so I think that is what everybody is thinking next.

“The Triple Crown has to be on our minds, if he wins the Derby that would be the obvious thing to do but I haven’t been told yet.”

O’Brien confirmed that Ryan Moore would be back on board at Epsom in his role as number one rider.
