John Gosden and Frankie Dettori can continue their domination in today’s William Hill St Leger with LOGICIAN (3.35, treble).
Gosden, successful in the oldest classic on four occasions, and Dettori, seeking a sixth victory, have made no secret of the high opinion they hold for Logician.
This is understandable as the unbeaten grey has yet to be extended in his four races.
His most recent victory in the Great Voltiguer at York last month highlighted his untapped ability when slamming Constantinople.
Sir Dragonet, from the Aidan O’Brien stable, looks the obvious danger – especially if there is some rain.
Like Gosden and Dettori, O’Brien also has an excellent record in the race with six victories to his credit.
O’Brien looks to have the answer in the Park Stakes with NEVER NO MORE (2.25, nap).
His recent run in the States can be overlooked as he was denied a clear run at a crucial stage of the contest, but he looked a smart colt on his penultimate run when slamming the Derby runner up Madhmoon at Leopardstown in April.
THREAT (3.00, nb) can enhance his prospects for next year’s 2,000 Guineas by taking the Champagne Stakes.
He has impressed in both defeat and more recently in victory at York when proving too strong for Lord Of The Lodge in Gimcrack Stakes.
