Flying The Flag won his Maiden on debut at Leopardstown over seven furlongs. However, that was his last win having subsequently finished second to First Cornerstone in a Group 2 at the Curragh last August before signing off his Juveline season with a last place 7th in the Vincent O'Brien Stakes won by Dawn Approach. He's run twice this season, finishing ninth at Longchamp in a Group1 contest before a sixth place finish (beaten 11 and a half lengths) in last weekend's Irish 2000 Guineas.
