Aidan O'Brien has major chances in the opening four races and GYPSY KING could be victory number five. The son of Galileo made a promising debut at Navan in October and was an odds-on chance for his next start at Leopardstown but found his stablemate, the much-touted Australia and subsequent winner Fiscal Focus too strong. He's expected to do much better this campaign and still has entries in the Epsom and Irish Derbys. Jocular has been narrowly beaten in both starts over a mile while Fog Of War made a promising start at Gowran and Jim Bolger thought enough of Wexford Town to enter him in a Group 3 on his second start, though he was well beaten. Zafayan is an interesting newcomer who is worth a market check.
