The market for this race has not formed much thus far. We will know more after the July meeting this week and the King George. Romsdal currently heads the market at 5/1. I don't know where he runs next. Anyone have an idea?

One I have taken a punt on at a big price is Windshear. He has steadily progressed this season through handicaps and has never been out of the first two. He has ran into a couple of really smart lightly raced types in Cannock Chase and Elite Army in his last two starts and was conceding them weight, albeit only 2lb and 1lb. He runs in the Bahrain Trophy on Thursday at Newmarket over 13f where he is favourite. If he wins that he most likely go for the St Leger, I hope. Only one firm is quoting him though which is a bit odd given Elite Army is in most books as a 12/1 chance. I've backed him at 20/1 with Billies.

Hannon Snr never won the Bahrain Trophy but had a couple placed and one near miss (Census).

Would stay the trip & has the best form imo, shame the owner does not want to aim him at it Plain, take all the beat in my book.
Big Jonny G loves winning this Classic, so maybe he will change her mind.

Aiden O'Brien's record is rather good here of course, and it's still very much unclear who he'll send.

I thought Kingfisher ran very well to stay on in the Irish Derby, Orchestra a reasonable yardstick to beat. He's won on soft, ran well on Gd/Fm, and the 1m 6f looks very much in reach. Whether he sends him over or not is the question??

sint. he definitely said Eagle Top would be going for the St Leger in an interview on tv , I think it was after Sultanina won at Goodwood and he was talking to Lydia but it could have been Nick Luck, he was talking about a lot of his good horses and where they would probably go. this was obviously before Eagle ran such a good race in the King George so plans maybe different now. cheers.

no, no, let me explain, he definitely said he was prepairing Eagle for the St Leger, this was before the King George, I can't remember when it was but obviously things have changed, he is entered in the voltigeur which is usually seen as a Leger trial, so maybe at one time that was the intended route, it's all up in the air now.

I think if JG had said that he would not be trading at 12/1 on here. With Romsdal he said he had planned to use the King George as his Leger prep prior to the race as his frame could not take much racing. So, if he is prepared to go straight there with Romsdal, then he might do it with ET (if they decide to go). The owners other horse, Forever Now, who finished 3rd in the Bharain Trophy behind Hartnell and Windshear is going to France next over 1m5f and the racing manager has said he won't be going to the Leger so it's interesting!

guys, my mistake, I just found the tape of the King George, Emma Ramsden was interviewing big johnny g pre race,  as I was going to the football that afternoon [Raith v Forfar] I set the recorder, when I watched it back he was talking about Eagle saying he had supplemented it, just like Nathaniel, and he went on to say Romsdal was being prepared for the Leger and this would be his trial, then freshened up for the Leger. my sincere apologies for the confusion. I bet Eagle at 6's immediately after, so this misunderstanding will probably cost me. cheers.

Never see the Great Voltigeur but it's no surprise Hartnell ran disappointingly as he looks like he needs 14F+ or at least some cut in the ground.

Not a great deal of movement in this market although there still seems to be a lot of deadwood. I assume the supplementary stage will clear it out, if he runs which will obviously be ground dependent I could see KH going off much shorter than the current 3/1 considering his price for the great Voltigeur prior to his withdrawl. It looks a weak race outside the top few in the betting.

Think  the Hartnel run in the Voligeur may be a little  misleading , his trainer  usually  has his quality  Horses roaring in the summer months so it was a surprise to me that  Hartnel  did not put up a better show in the Voltigeur   . He  looks the type for the SL  his defeat of Windsheer  at Newmarket  was very clear cut in a valuable Race . Some people say the trainer runs his horses into the ground  but this is not true when it comes to his classier Types .  KH  is becoming the most frustrating  horse to follow  and may well be pulled out again  given the  current weather.

This looks quite a poor St Leger to me with nothing really outstanding.

Of those at the head of the market I suppose Romsdal must have a chance just becasue he has always been Gosden's St Leger horse. He did disappoint at Ascot though. If you forgave him that one run and his Epsom 3rd looks okay. he looks like a stayer too.

Snow Sky looks solid too and also looks like he'll stay. As someone else noted his run at York was decent as the winner there looks interesting maybe in the Arc this year!

The apparent zero rainfall looks an issue for the favourite sadly for connections.

My personal choices are Odeon Shocked; he is a total nutter imo who has never yet shown his best form as he goes crazy before the start and then puuld his head off in the early stages. If (a very big if agreed) he chose to behave, he could be a massive improver on what he has done so far. A tiny bet at 100 is all that is required on this dodgepot. He is pretty good I reckon if only he allowed himself the chance to show it.

The other one at a big price is KingfisherWink. He was identified as Ballydoyles Ledger horse ages ago. He has had a "Duke Of Marmalade" preparation for his own group 1 race -  ie being used as a pacemaker by Aiden O'Brien so you can forget about a few of his runs.

Whilst its irritating that Coolmore have so many middle distance Galileo's in their stable that they can afford to use a good horse as a simple pacemaker, it does have a silver lining. If Kingfisher had been trained conventionally and everyone could see how good he really is, he would be a deal shorter in the betting.

@Joci club, I felt exactly the same after his run in the Eclipse, derby run at a good clip and he was sticking on all the way to the line. Felt in the Eclipse he was given a fairly poor ride over an inadequate trip and again ran on after the race was lost. Expect them to go a slightly slower pace than the derby which should suit him fine from a stamina perspective.

Having has another good look I would certainly not put anyone off Snow Sky. However I quite fancy Winsheer to reverse Goodwood form. There was only a neck in it Goodwood and I am sure that course would have suited Snow Sky better (he liked Lingfield).

Winsheer seems to me to be the most likely to not just get the etxra 2.5 fls. okay but to improve most for it as his breeding screams stamina. He looks like a possible future Cup horse so has a chance of improving significantly over the trip.

Think most people would agree KH's career best was his 2nd in the Derby, on ground that had to be good to firm judging by the clock. The horse was then pulled out of the Irish Derby on slower ground over what would appear his most suitable trip only to be dropped in trip for the Eclipse on ground that was as fast as at Epsom on Derby day. I see no reason why this horse is supposed not to handle good to firm ground and his 3yo record could've been a bit better with better placement by connections.

yep, the clerk's comments seem about right.

As pointed out above, the evidence that he needs a lot of give underfoot is flimsy to say the least - he ran his best race in the Derby and ran perfectly adequately in the Eclipse over a trip which is probably less than optimum.

I wonder if the owner might intervene - particularly as his father's Coolmore representation appears underwhelming.Even if they don't water, he is not being asked to race on anything other than normal summer flat racing ground - they need to get on with it, they have plenty to gain and little to lose as the ground will be plenty safe enough.

I still think he'll run but I suppose we'll have Varian walking the track before racing and then waiting for jockey reports from the earlier races, before making a decision either way...not ideal for the racing public.

I agree with kinscem, a lot of chaff in the race. One good thing about Varian's ground statements is they've given the impression the horse needs some cut and have helped to make him a decent price. I don't know for sure if he'll be as good over the longer trip. Actually I've never seen any pedigree research that gives more than a ball park area estimate, maybe some people's work can improve on that but they're keeping it to themselves. As a 2yo Kingston Hill always looked very much a stayer and has continued to do so as a 3yo, not the most intricate stamina analysis but it's good enough for me. In my view, if he runs his race the rest need to improve to beat him. He's only had 3 runs this year and has been rested since early June, which I see as beneficial to his chances. On the other hand, with no recent form to judge him on it has to be taken on trust that he's still the horse he was earlier. All things considered I think around the 7/2 mark is a very fair price he runs his race and the others don't improve past him.

this race really does lack depth class wise...

kingston hill like others are saying really is a big price today, my main concern with him is his ability to stay this far but he has always looked a stayer really in his run style but i do have major reservations myself about him getting home...mastercraftsman first bunch of three year olds haven't produced much stayers so far and it is still to be proved how his progeny will get on over staying trips but i have major reservations in this regard for the horse, however you are certainly getting the right price to find out and he is the best on ratings but his lack of a prep and stamina reservations, add to what i think about the derby, mean i have to pass him over as much as I feel I should be backing him

some of the prices on some of the horses here really are astounding imo - kings fete at 10-1 is a shocker on a achievement on the track and i'd want double that to find out about him, he has also been keen in the past...i have the same feelings in regards the price about windshear who if we take that strict line of form from goodwood at face value on a line through the progressive snow sky, we could give him a chance but really snow sky was very coltish at goodwood and his class still saw him through, i fully expect him to confirm form with windshear who looks progressive himself but at a level imo that leaves him plenty to find to win a race of this standard...i must be missing something with scotland at 22-1, he must of suddenly inherited some ability from somewhere because he certainly hasn't shown much on the track

forever now is likeable as is alex my boy both are progressing well as much as like both surely they have to much to find

i have a few stamina reservations about snow sky but imo he is the best colt in this, so am backing him and the horse who has been completely overlooked at the odds is hartnell who looked to run up the back of horses in the voltigeur and loose his stride pattern...i can forgive him that and he wasn't knocked about - before that he was most progressive...he does however come with a slight warning in regards the trainer, who may of already cooked him for the season but we are getting the right price at around 20-1 and if he can return to his early season form he has to have a decent chance...kingston hill has to be respected and all the others are fair at just a muddling level...tricky race so good luck if your having a decent bet, but imo it doesn't warrant it...senockian star on the other hand does

The trip is an unknown but he looked as though he would stay at Epsom. He is lightly raced this year and his poorish runs were over distances too short for him. Why he ran in the Eclipse i don't understand. A question. Could any of today's opposition have run Australia so close? Doubt it very much.

Very gd performance from K H 2day Cool
Thought for a few moments he had given him a bit to do, but he got it right & he came home strong to land the final Classic of the season Cool
Not an Arc horse tho & unless the ground is soft he would be winning a G1 over 1m4f imo.

"not be winning" i should say. Wink

not seen the race yet but I wonder if Varian will look to appoint a new stable jockey or continue to try to use Atzeni as much as he can?

Assume both Sintonian and Judorick traded their positions. You know it makes sense.

why aftertime like that Felt?

I backed Windshear ante-post at 20/1, I'm not a trader/layer.

Missed the race so not sure if luck played a part in Windshear missing a place by a neck.

wd KH backers.

Had a dream unimpeded run along the rail all the way but couldn`t cope with the speedier types at the business end. Probably his best ever performance.

cheers Felt. Gutted he did not hang on for a place!

Guineas has produced all three classic winners this year. Obviously the first is a given but suggests it is a fairly strong year. Plus the French derby. Most of the all aged G1s have been picked up by the three year olds minus the Eclipse which didn't have an obvious candidate.
