Aidan O’Brien expressed his delighted as Camelot came through his only public workout ahead of his bid for Triple Crown glory at Doncaster on September 15th.
The son of Montjeu, who has landed the English 2000 Guineas and both the Epsom and Curragh Derby so far this season worked alongside two stable mates, Chamonix and Fame And Glory over 1m 4f at Leopardstown on Thursday afternoon.
Settled at the back of the work, Camelot and Joseph O’Brien quickened impressively over the last few furlongs to come right away from Fame And Glory in a piece of work that left O’Brien suitably impressed.
“They went a nice solid bit of work, it was an even-building pace. You’d have to be very happy with him. He’s done very well physically, he’s made like a miler and you can see that he has a bit of a tummy on him.
Camelot will try and become the first horse since the great Nijinsky to land the English Triple Crown of 2000 Guineas, Derby and St. Leger, a feat that has not been achieved since 1970.
