O'Brien considering Ranger options

US Army Ranger could make his return in the Royal Whip Stakes, trainer Aidan O'Brien has revealed.

The son of Galileo finished just a length-and-a-half behind Harzand in the Investec Derby and had been due to run in the Irish equivalent last month before he was ruled out following a dirty scope.

He took part in a canter after racing at Leopardstown on Thursday night with O'Brien hopeful of getting him back to a racecourse in the coming weeks.

"US Army Ranger is getting ready to come back," O'Brien said. "We've been very happy with him. He had a break and is just back in.

"We could look at the Curragh with him - maybe the Royal Whip (August 21)."

O'Brien took a number of his stable stars along to Leopardstown for the post-racing gallop with Found and Order Of St George joining US Army Ranger at the Foxrock venue.

"Found just did a canter," O'Brien explained. "We're very happy with her and we'll have a look at something like the Royal Whip or maybe the fillies' race at the Curragh (Snow Fairy Stakes)."

"Order Of St George is grand. He's coming back and we'll get him ready for the Leger Trial at the Curragh."
