J: Dylan Browne McMonagle

Has Group 2 entries, plus Irish Derby but not the Derby; by Galileo out of a Cheveley Park second; close third behind two stablemates in a 7f Curragh maiden (soft to heavy) last October; 11-10, looked better the further he went in maiden at Dundalk (10.5f, AW) six weeks ago, winning by nearly 5l; that was useful form and this late foal still has his best days ahead of him.
