The final Classic event of the season sees the St Leger at Doncaster and at 20/1 The Mediterranean looks to overpriced in the market off the back of his latest run at York.
The son of Galileo has now been seen six times during his career, only having one run as a juvenile over seven furlongs, but this season being seen five times over 1m4f.
Starting his term off at Leopardstown in a decent maiden, he got off the mark in taking style showing that stamina trips are what he needs.
Since then he has stepped up into Listed, Group Two and Group One company performing well in the majority of his races, but last time at York he really caught the eye.
The three year old wanted to make it a true test for the other runners in the race and went from the front under Wayne Lordan.
Many of O'Brien's pace setters seem to fade away in the latter stages of the race, but not The Mediterranean who plugged on gamely to grab second behind the smart Yibir.
Going up in trip is a positive and at a big each way price he looks to be the value in the field.
