Aidan O’Brien ‘overjoyed’ as top stayer Kyprios triumphs at Navan

The horse, under jockey Ryan Moore, achieved victory with a nice tow into the race from his front-running stablemate Queenstown. Gradually pulling away inside the last furlong, he scored by three and a quarter lengths, with Yashin coming in third by a further two and a half lengths. The winner remains the 5-2 favorite with Paddy Power for the Gold Cup at Ascot, showing potential for more to come. Trainer Aidan O’Brien expressed satisfaction with the race and outlined the horse’s performance and potential for improvement.

Another horse, a son of Wootton Bassett with a 1.25m guineas price tag, also impressed under jockey Moore, getting on top inside the final furlong and stretching clear impressively to secure victory. Stable representative Chris Armstrong emphasized the horse’s exciting potential, especially in the last furlong of the race, and hinted at the possibility of a run at Ascot. In the Group 3 Salsabil Stakes, Ezeliya, ridden by Chris Hayes, showed a very willing attitude inside the final furlong to edge out the unbeaten Purple Lily by half a length. Trainer Weld expressed optimism about the filly’s potential and future plans, indicating that she holds entries in the Epsom and Curragh Oaks and emphasizing the importance of better ground for her.

The team plans to review her performance and make a decision in the coming weeks. The son of Bungle Inthejungle, with the Commonwealth Cup as his mid-season goal, achieved a good performance despite early challenges. Trainer Jessica Harrington praised the horse’s performance and potential, expressing confidence in his ability to meet his targets.
