Joseph O’Brien – Churchill Will Not Be Beaten
4:20 Royal Ascot
My father and I are really looking to the week ahead, it’s hugely important to us.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Churchill and I don’t think he can be beaten here. I haven’t seen any chinks in his armour. I’m hoping Winter puts on a good show also!

Now You’re Talking runs in the Queen Mary Stakes on Day Two of Royal Ascot. She’s in good form and hopefully she runs very well. She had a good run in the Curragh on soft ground and the ground here will suit her better, we’re looking forward to the race. It’s a very competitive race and we’d be wary of Wesley Ward!
True Blue Moon runs in the Norfolk Stakes. He’s in great form and we’re looking forward to seeing what he produces for us! We’re not 100% sure if Intricately will go to the Coronation Stakes on Friday, she’s also entered into the Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh on July 2nd.
It was a busy week for Band Of Outlaws. We were disappointed with the loss at Roscommon but Donnacha’s leather broke and he did well to finish the race. At Limerick he won nice and snug and we think he’s a great colt.
Immortal Bridge also won at Downpatrick and he won nicely. I suppose he was in front for a long time and he was a bit lonely but it was a good win and he’d entitled to step up in grade now.
