O'Brien Selects Duo For Champion Stakes
Meanwhile, Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O'Brien will enter Saturday's Gr1 Irish Champion Stakes armed with a two-pronged attack in the shape of hugely exciting Declaration Of War and Kingsbarns. While there may be little surprise at the selection of the War Front colt following his ultra-impressive Gr1 Judmonte Stakes win less than two weeks ago, Kingsbarns has been tossed into the deep end against a highly competitive field. Undefeated when claiming last October's Gr1 Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster, the son of Galileo has not raced since then. He is currently at $7, with Declaration Of War the reigning $3.25 favourite.
