The first selection of the St Leger meeting at Doncaster on Wednesday comes in the seven furlong Class 2 Nursery Handicap and we have sided with the Roger Varian trained Sed Maarib.
The two year old colt has been seen three times to date, improving rapidly for each start and now making his handicap debut off what looks a feasible mark, he should be weighted to go well.
Having made his debut in June and needing the experience in what has turned out to be a very smart race, he then went to Salisbury and finished a good second behind a nice type for Michael Bell.
The son of American Pharoah was last seen at Beverley when bolting up in a Novice Stakes and with progression likely again he looks the value in this race.
Expensive purchase that is expected to go well here.
