A good third last time out in the King George. He took up the running three out, and looked like he was cantering all over the field.
Saint Calvados was ultimately outstayed there, and perhaps he would have gone closer given a better ride – Gavin Sheehan did kick fairly early on this horse.
Saint Calvados has benefitted from extreme hold up tactics before, he doesn’t seem to find loads off the bridle, so patience is needed.
However, he’s back down to a much favourable distance here and if the King George hasn’t left it’s mark on him, he’s huge claims.
