Just seven days on from making a striking winning debut, Aidan O’Brien had no concerns about plunging the No Nay Never colt into Group Three company.
Sent off the heavily-backed 1-3 favourite, Donnacha O’Brien knew he was on the best horse and kept things simple.
At the head of affairs he was the last off the bridle before putting the race to bed, after quickening up with a furlong to run.
Just as he did last weekend, the most impressive aspect of his win was the ease with which he put distance between himself and the rest, and he pulled clear to beat Bruce Wayne, who was sixth in the same maiden as the winner.
Paddy Power immediately cut the winner to 7-1 for next year’s 2000 Guineas.
