Aidan O'Brien believes Gordon Elliott's Beckford is a real threat ahead of the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

O'Brien has Sioux Nation, US Navy Flag, Actress and Declarationofpeace entered in the race.
The trainer is expecting an improved performance from Declarationofpeace after a disappointing showing in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot, where he was the pre-race favourite, but he remains wary of Beckford.
"Declarationofpeace hasn't run since Ascot as we were a little bit disappointed with him there," O'Brien told At The Races.
"He had a little bit of a hold up about a month before and that might have affected him so he might leave that run behind and hopefully the ground might be nice and quick.
"Beckford has been very impressive, he's only ran twice but won very well the last day and was very impressive in his maiden."
