3.35 Doncaster – Capri – WON 3/1

A really good St Leger with a lot of strength in depth, but this chap looks sure to really benefit from this step up in trip, holds the strongest piece of form when winning the Irish Derby and comes here a fresh horse. He’s run his best races when encountering a surface with a little juice, which he’ll get here, and has had the look of a St Leger horse pretty much all season. Out-paced over 10f on his first two starts, he ran really well in the Debry to be right there ½ furlong out, but was slightly done for toe on the quick surface. He battled really well when winning the Irish Derby, beating Wings of Eagles the Epsom Derby Winner and Cracksman who’s since franked the form in no uncertain terms. As already stared, the trip and ground look ideal and he’s a major player.
