Australia will not run in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby on June 28 if the ground is testing.

Aidan O'Brien commented in the past that Camelot, his 2012 Derby winner, was never the same after winning the Curragh Classic in very soft conditions.

Australia's jockey Joseph O'Brien is keen to ride him over 10 furlongs in the future and warned his appearance at the Curragh is ground dependent.

"He's a very good horse, it all went pretty much to plan on the day," O'Brien told At The Races.

"He has a great temperament, he lobbed down to the start, left the gate and never picked up the bridle all the way. He was lovely and relaxed.

"I'd love to ride him back at a mile and a quarter and he is something to look forward to.

"The ground would have to be very nice for us to run him in the Irish Derby, we definitely wouldn't risk him on slow ground so the ground would have to be very nice."
