Australia off the mark in eyecatching fashion

Second on his debut recently, AUSTRALIA hit the mark in eyecatching fashion to win from Carla Bianca by 3/4 length in the Darley European Breeders Fund Maiden at the Curragh on Saturday. Racing prominently he went to the front 2f out and was kept up to his job to hold off the runner-up with the pair drawing clear of the rest of the field.

Following AUSTRALIA'S win,  Aidan O'Brien said "He is still very babyish. The penny hasn't dropped for him yet but he could be anything and we'll take our time with him" (Racing Post 21.07.2013).
