Platinum Warrior win boosts Hazapour Derby claim

Platinum Warrior boosted the Derby claims of Hazapour when running out a clear-cut winner of the Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh.

Only fourth behind Dermot Weld’s Epsom hope in the Derrinstown Derby Trial, he landed this Group Three with the minimum of fuss.

Michael Halford’s Galileo colt could be called the winner some way out and the 7-2 chance beat Latrobe by two and a quarter lengths with Harvestfortheworld third.

Shane Foley was on board, 24 hours on from winning the 2,000 Guineas on Romanised.
