Verdict

The progressive Galileo gelding, GALILEAN could take some stopping following a facile victory at the third time of asking at the Fairyhouse Easter festival last month. The five-year-old, trained by Joseph O'Brien can take the prize at the expense of the Henry De Bromhead-trained Judgement Day on first start for five months. Lethal Steps in the colours of Cheveley Park Stud and Flindt can battle for the minors.
