G'DAY FOR ADELAIDE.

NEWSBOY 1-2-3

1 ADELAIDE

2 SNOW SKY

3 MINER'S LAMP

ADELAIDE has already shown himself to be a useful middle-distance performer - and there is the promise of more to come.

A son of Galileo, like his Derby-winning stablemate, Australia, Adelaide got his career off to the perfect beginning with a fluent Leopardstown maiden victory last October.

Aidan O'Brien elected to re-introduce my selection in the Group 2 Prix Hocquart at Longchamp in May, and Adelaide was anything but discredited in coming home half a length second to Free Port Lux.

But he was back in the winner's enclosure a fortnight later after comfortably landing the odds with a three-length score from stablemate Meekong River in the Group 3 Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh.

He looks the type with further improvement up his sleeve, and, with a mile and a half expected to suit - on both pedigree and run style - Adelaide is fancied for a winning return to Group 2 company.

Derby sixth Western Hymn, Sir Michael Stoute's (above) Derby Trial winner Snow Sky and Godolphin's progressive Miner's Lamp look most likely to chase him home.
