Caravaggio masters the Curragh to land Phoenix
Aidan O'Brien's Caravaggio cemented his position at the top of the juvenile tree with another imperious performance in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.
Bringing a three-race unbeaten record into the first Group One of the season for two-year-olds, the son of Scat Daddy was the red-hot 1-8 favourite to make it four from four.
The Coventry Stakes winner made his move at the two-furlong pole and Seamus Heffernan never had to get too serious to beat Courage Under Fire by an easy four lengths.
Paddy Power trimmed the winner to 5-4 favourite from 6-4 for the next season's Qipco 2000 Guineas.
