Timeform brings you their comprehensive runner-for-runner guide to St. Leger in the Curragh, Ireland on Sunday and chooses their 1st -2-3 off.
1st aircraft carrier (Luke Comer / Gary Carroll)
On a long loss, but he looks overwhelmed here and probably won’t be there.
2. Amhrann Na Bhfiann (Aidan O’Brien / Colin Keane)
Clever colt who showed his best performance over distance and distance in the landing of the Curragh Cup in June. Last month, however, Twilight Payment was clearly beaten in the Irish St. Leger Trial on this route and distance and is hardly imaginable.
3. Barbados (Jessica Harrington / Shane Foley)
On a long series of defeats that goes back to 2019 and includes 15 starts. In pretty good shape as runner-up at a smaller event in Killarney last month, he was still below his best and doesn’t make much of a big splash at this company.
4. Baron Samedi (Joseph O’Brien / Dylan Browne McMonagle )
Clever gelding who completed a remarkable seven-timer in Group 2 in Belmont in June. He finished a good fifth place at the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud in Saint-Cloud over a mile and a half in July and doesn’t look out of place.
5th Emperor of the Sun (Donnacha O’Brien / Gavin Ryan)
Achieved a well-deserved second success and a first at a publicly traded level in Leopardstown in May. Since then not out of favor in good company and another courageous performance is imminent.
6. Master of Reality (Joseph O’Brien / Shane Crosse)
Clever gelding who got back on track in a listed race in Down Royal in July, but is a touch below the required standard.
7. Sonnyboyliston (Johnny Murtagh / Ben Coen)
Likeable guy who took his form to a new level when he got up at the Ebor in York last month. Perhaps there will be more to come, so he has excellent claims on his first attempt at this level.
8. Twilight payment (Joseph O’Brien / Declan McDonogh)
Melbourne Cup hero who got his career back on track when he landed the trial for this track and distance a month ago. Looks sure to add another solid display.
9. Barrington Court (Jessica Harrington / Billy Lee)
Useful hurdler who was successful last summer when he switched to the flat and signed off with two listed wins at Naas over a mile and a half. A handsome fourth behind Twilight Payment in the Irish St Leger Trial last month, but she still has to find something.
10. Passion (Aidan O’Brien / Ryan Moore)
Smart winner over a mile and three-quarters last season but looked rusty after an eight month break in third place in the Curragh Cup over distance and distance in June. She should step forward now and Ryan Moore’s booking catches the eye.
11. Searching for a song (Dermot Weld / Oisin Orr)
Very smart mare who landed for the second time last year and, although she wasn’t in top form at both starts this semester, had an excuse the last time. You are definitely prepared for that.
No. 11 (1)
Looking for a song (Irish)
SBK9 / 2
Coach: D. K. Weld, Ireland
Jockey: Oisin James Orr
Weight: 9st 8lbs
12. Carlisle Bay (Aidan O’Brien / Wayne Lordan)
Disappointed when he returned to Lingfield in May with a well-beaten last of six in the listed derby trial. Has a lot on his plate here.
13. King of the Castle (Aidan O’Brien / Seamie Heffernan)
Useful colt who won a girl in Limerick in July. Good sixth in Melrose last month, but he’s against it in this class.
14th Seattle Creek (Luke Comer / Chris Hayes)
Once ridden virgin who finished fourth on her Leopardstown debut in May. This is a big step forward in the class.
A hard-fought St. Leger in which the tight vote goes to Sonnyboyliston, who is less exposed than most of the others and who wins the Ebor due to an improved performance. Twilight Payment is expected to do well after she lands the process, while Search For A Song, which has enjoyed success for the past 2 years, is unlikely to be far off on her hat-trick bid.
