Ebanoran coming back in trip

Ebanoran will drop back in trip after his ninth to Australia in the Investec Derby at Epsom.

The John Oxx-trained Oasis Dream colt was having just his fourth career start, coming on the back of being demoted to second in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown.

His main rival that day, Fascinating Rock, finished one place in front of him on the Downs.

Hopes had been high that despite being by a sprinter, the Aga Khan-owned three-year-old would benefit from the stamina influence on his dam's side, but Oxx felt that had not been the case.

He said: "He just didn't stay, but you have to run to find out.

"He'll probably run at the Curragh on Derby weekend in the International Stakes, a Group Three over 10 furlongs."
