The 4/6 favourite was content to race in third in the four runner field but asserted 150 yards from home in the seven furlong contest to go past Akeed Wafi (7/4) and win by two and three parts of a length.
“I’m delighted. He travels well and quickens,” trainer Aidan O’Brien said.
“He got a bit tired last time. We always thought he was a Guineas and French Derby type.”
Furners Green was cut from 50/1 to 33/1 with Boylesports for the English 2,000 Guineas and Epsom Derby. Meanwhile Ladbrokes introduced the colt at 33/1 for the Derby and shortened him to 33/1 from 66/1 for the 2,000 Guineas.
