Another talented son of Galileo, the Aidan O'Brien trained Orchestra holds off the John Gosden trained/Princess Haya of Jordan owned Romsdal by a nose to win the G3 Chester Vase over 12-1/2f on pretty testing soft ground at Chester. Orchestra raced only twice last season as a 2yo, finishing 2nd behind the highly touted Free Eagle in a Leopardstown maiden his first time out, he won a Tipperary maiden on his second start, and today he wins the G3 Chester Vase on his third career start to date. Definitely looks like a horse that won't have any problems seeing out the Derby trip at Epsom if he's good enough to win it?
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Aidan O'Brien as much as any other trainer I've seen really puts a lot emphasis on the G3 Chester Vase for his 3yo, and rightfully so. Aidan O'Brien trained 3yo have won 3 of the last 4 running's now of the Chester Vase, Treasure Beach in 2011, Ruler of the World in 2013, and Orchestra in 2014. Treasure Beach came out of the race to finish 2nd in the Epsom Derby and win the Irish Derby, and Ruler of the World came out of the race to win the Epsom Derby and run 2nd in the Prix Niel. David Livingston's 4th in the 2012 Chester Vase, still then representing Coolmore, is the only renewal of the last 4 that Coolmore have lost. Actually, Golden Sword & Masterofthehorse ran 1st & 2nd for Coolmore in the 2009 Chester Vase, so I guess you could say Aidan O'Brien runners have won 4 of the last 6 running's of the Chester Vase. · 78 days ago
