In depth

Verdict

MEDAL OF HONOUR is well exposed but spent the early part of his career chasing home decent performers and didn't run badly in a Group 3 at Leopardstown before finding a lucrative sales race too hot at Doncaster. He's given another chance though Aidan O'Brien's pair El Greco and Prepare For Battle are newcomers to note, especially the latter, a $400,000 son of Declaration Of War. Leaderboard made a promising debut at the Curragh and should be ready for this along with Joust and Platinum Warrior, who have also gone well on the same track.
