In Ireland overnight, unbeaten European Champion juvenile & dual Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Teofilo (Galileo-Speirbhean, by Danehill) added a group success when his colt Light Heavy (Teofilo-Siamsa, by Quest For Fame) scored by a neck in the €95,000 (A$118,000) Gr2 Derby trial Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs at Leopardstown. Light Heavy (ridden by Kevin Manning for trainer Jim Bolger) defeated fellow colts Tower Rock (Dylan Thomas-Monevassia, by Mr Prospector) & Wrote (High Chaparral-Desert Classic, by Green Desert). Light Heavy (a Bolger home-bred) took his record to 3 wins (also including April's Gr3 Ballysax Stakes over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown) & a runner-up from 4 starts for €107,325 (A$133,000) earnings.
