ST Nicholas Abbey is continuing to progress along the right lines after having undergone two major operations.

The six-times Group One winner fractured a pastern on Aidan O'Brien's Ballydoyle gallops which ended his racing career and developed colic soon after.

"He's had two massive surgeries and it's a credit to everybody he's doing as well as he is," said O'Brien.

"It's so far, so good. Every week that goes by he's getting a shorter price to make it.

"Hopefully everything keeps going well. He's a magic horse."
