Adelaide strikes for O'Brien

Adelaide continued Aidan O'Brien's remarkable record in the Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh as he became the trainer's ninth winner in the last 11 runnings of the Group Three contest.

Second on his comeback in the Prix Hocquart, Adelaide followed his front-running stablemate Mekong River and started to get down to business in the last couple of furlongs.

Boqa threw down his own challenge, but the 4-6 favourite, who has Investec Derby and King Edward VII Stakes entries, powered away under Joseph O'Brien to finish three lengths in front of Mekong River.

The winning handler, who took the prize last season with subsequent St Leger hero Leading Light, said: "We were worried about the soft ground for him as he's a lovely moving horse.

"He's done everything we've asked of him so far, and he could go to Ascot for the King Edward, or there's a chance he could go for the French Derby next weekend, but that could come too soon.

"The problem with the French Derby is if you're drawn one it is very difficult over a mile and a quarter at Chantilly."

O'Brien completed a three-timer following his Irish Guineas triumph with Wonderfully when 5-4 favourite Table Mountain obliged in the concluding Newstalk EBF Maiden, again with the trainer's son Joseph in the plate, though he did not look an easy ride as he wandered about under pressure.
