Leitir Mor will race at Leopardstown

Tom Peacock

JIM Bolger plans to give Dewhurst Stakes runner-up Leitir Mor his 13th run of the season at Leopardstown on Saturday.

The ultra-experienced two-year-old, who has led his stablemate and next year's 2000 Guineas favourite Dawn Approach in work, was the chestnut's pacemaker at Newmarket a fortnight ago and held on to second place after carrying out his duties to perfection.

Placed in two other Group Ones, as well as winning the Group Three Round Tower Stakes, the son of Holy Roman Emperor is pencilled in for this weekend's JRA Killavullan Stakes at the same grade.

"The plan is for Leitir Mor to run, and he is very well," said Bolger today.
