The Irish Rover (No Nay Never) winning a condition stakes at Newbury

Irish Rover scores for No Nay Never

Aidan O’Brien sent over first-crop No Nay never colt The Irish Rover (2c No Nay Never-Shelley Beach, by Danehill Dancer) to win a £50,000 conditions event at Newbury in some style on Saturday.

Ryan Moore was aboard the youngster who took up the running in the six-furlong contest a furlong out and ran on well to win by two and a half lengths.

“He was lovely today,” said O’Brien. "Ryan gave him a lovely, confident ride and it would have taught him plenty. You would love everything about the progeny of No Nay Never - there is a lot of Scat Daddy in them and they are all speed, which is what you are looking for.

“He ran straight through the line and hopefully we will be thinking about Royal Ascot for him now."
