The Irish Derby at the Curragh at the end of June is likely to be the next target for the Aidan O’Brien trained Anthony Van Dyck.
After winning the Derby at Epsom on Saturday, O’Brien said: “It’s a dream come true. To win this race is so tough every year – that’s why we run so many horses. We just try to keep them sound to compete in these races. The Derby is the ultimate test.
“Anthony Van Dyck was a solid horse and he had very good form last year. We always thought he was going to be a middle-distance horse.
“He will have no problem dropping back to a mile and a quarter, and he handles fast ground.”
