Logician the one to beat in St Leger says spokesman



The excitement is building for one of the most prestigious races in the horse racing calendar.

The St Leger is said to be the longest-standing of the five Classic meetings, and is always hotly anticipated as the final Classic to be run each year.

Doncaster is the setting for this iconic race, which is held at Doncaster Racecourse. First run in 1776, the St Leger is the longest distance of all the Classics, coming at one mile, six furlongs and 115 yards.

There are just 11 contenders for the William Hill St Leger this year. At the time of writing, John Gosden’s Logician remains the horse to beat.

He’s yet to be beaten this year and put in a spectacular performance when he competed at York in the Great Voltigeur Stakes.

Gosden will be hoping for a repeat performance of that race on Saturday, which would give Logician his fifth win of the season.

And it’s certainly within reach, as the horse is said to be in great form following his impressive win at Ebor.

However, there’s strong competition in the field, particularly from Aiden O’Brien’s string of horses.

O’Brien is no stranger to the Winner’s Enclosure at Doncaster, having trained six previous winners of the St Leger. And this year he has six horses in the race, so there’s a lot at stake, even in the tote placepot..

Sir Dragonet came fourth in the Investec Derby and third at the Curragh, competing in the Royal Whip Stakes. Meanwhile, Il Paradiso managed to come in third in the Lonsdale Cup, after a very strong performance in the race. Il Paradiso is being geared up as a prospect for the Gold Cup in the future, so O’Brien clearly has high hopes for this promising three-year-old.

Other contenders in the race include four more from O’Brien’s team – Barbados, Western Australia, South Pacific and Norway.

They will be joined at the starting line by Dashing Willoughby, Nayef Road, Sir Ron Priestley and Technician.
