JOSEPH O’BRIEN’S transition to the training ranks got off to a flying start on Monday with his first runner with a licence, Justice Frederick, winning the opener at Gowran Park.

The two-year-old, owned by Maxwell Morris, justified favouritism to score on his second start under the trainer’s younger brother, Donnacha, defeating Leo Minor – trained by their dad Aidan – by a length-and-a-half.

Justice Frederick, who ran under Aidan O’Brien’s name when third eleven days ago, is entered in the Group 1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on August 7.

The former dual champion jockey in Ireland saddles six more runners this afternoon – three apiece at Listowel and Gowran Park.
