Who To Follow On Day Four Of The St Leger Meeting

Horse To Follow - Hurricane Lane

The big race of the day is the Group One St Leger and the favourite Hurricane Lane looks to be on a completely different level to this field.

The three year old son of Frankel made his debut last term at Newmarket in a decent Novice Stakes over a mile on heavy ground and he ran out an easy winner.

Saved for this season, he was stepped up in trip on seasonal debut in a good Conditions Stakes over 10f and again ran out a good winner, doing his best work near the finish.

The form of that race does not look bad with the second since placing in a better event and the fourth placed runner since winning.He also backed up this form line last time out when landing the Group Two Dante Stakes at York, staying the 10.5 furlongs well.

He saw off smart runners Megallan and High Definition that day and was sure to head to the Derby having plenty of stamina in his family.

The colt managed to finish a good third in the Classic event behind Adayar and Mojo Star, with the form of those runners working out and he also lost two shoes in running that day.

With plenty of scope for improvement from that run he then went into the Irish Derby at The Curragh we he chased down Lone Eagle late in the day to get up on the line.

Looking to land back to back Group One events in the Grand Prix de Paris, he slipped clear of the field and took the event by six lengths.

He will be sure to get the trip and will have to seriously underperform to not go close here.

Trainer To Follow - Roger Varian

Roger Varian has some great chances on the final day of the meeting has some great chances to get himself on the scoreboard and for that reason is the trainer to follow.

His big chance of the day comes in the Group Two Park Stakes with the smart Laneqash making his second start of the season after a superb runner up run in the Hungerford Stakes on seasonal debut.

Another nice chance for the yard is the recently gelded Title who holds bundles of ability and should have too much in this field.

Varian has managed four winners over the last two weeks and has some great chances to add to that on Saturday.

Jockey To Follow - William Buick

One of the best jockeys in the world, William Buick heads into the final day of the Town Moor meeting with some great chances to add to his flying tally for the week.

The rider has a handful of big chances for Godolphin starting in the first with Fall Of Rome and then also in the last race of the day Royal Fleet could be tough to beat.

His best chance of a winner on the day comes in the Group One St Leger with dual Group One winner Hurricane Lane looking to land a hat-trick.

The Norwegian rider heads into the day running at a 22% strike rate for the last two weeks, having landed 17 winners from 72 rides.
