Anthony Van Dyck, the Investec Derby winner, and Broome, who finished fourth in the Epsom Classic, lead the team for Aidan O’Brien's in his bid for a 13th Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby win at the Curragh on Saturday - he has 20 of the 47 left in at the moment. King Edward VII Stakes winner Japan (3rd in the Derby) has other targets next month.
Speaking on Sunday, O’Brien said: “Anthony Van Dyck came out of Epsom well and is in good form. The plan is to run him and Broome and possibly a couple of others in the Irish Derby. Japan definitely won’t be running at the Curragh. We’ll wait a bit before making a plan for him. We have the option of either the Grand Prix de Paris or the King George Vl and Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes."
