A decisive performance from the winner in a contest where not a lot was destined to be learned.
LATROBE made all, travelled well the whole way and did his best work inside the final furlong to win by a good margin. He stays 1m4f well, acts on the ground, and if anything he was further in command at the post than at any other point in the race. As an Irish Derby trial, his Gallinule run was more informative, how well he stayed this trip was the most informative aspect of this run.
Tornado Watch is a decent handicap hurdler at a middling level. He was held up off the pace and was more or less ridden to be second. Those in front of him fell by the wayside in the last couple of furlongs and he stayed on. A 1m6f conditions race or maiden could suit him, perhaps at Leopardstown in the coming weeks.
Baliyad chased the winner most of the way, came off the bridle before the straight and tired late on. He is one that's likely to improve but is more likely to win a handicap. Galway could well be on the cards.
Jack The Wire faded from two furlongs out and was well beaten.
Mulligan Choice kept going at one pace, might not have stayed, and showed a modicum of promise. [Justin O'Hanlon]
QUOTES: Latrobe was entitled to go and do that. He'll go on to the Irish Derby now all being well. I think 1m4f is his trip and he might even get further in time - Joseph O'Brien, trainer.https://www.racingpost.com/results/178/curragh/2018-06-09/704477/analysis
