Ante-post favourite Jack Hobbs pleased trainer John Gosden in his final piece of work on Wednesday morning ahead of the 150th Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh on Saturday.

Gosden is seeking to win the Irish Classic for the first time with the colt that finished second behind stable companion Golden Horn in the Investec Derby at Epsom earlier this month.

"He worked this morning with William Buick on him and we were happy with him and the horse seems in good order," said the Newmarket handler.

"We would appreciate a shower or two and something close to good ground but we are pleased with the horse and we'll be heading over, all being well between now and the weekend.

"He handled Epsom surprisingly well for a tall, rangy, horse and we hoped the Curragh would suit him better and it was the plan to always come here and we are holding with it."
