Lots of familiar names in the Irish St. Leger and who would put is passed Search For A Song winning three in a row. She should be primed for this although has certainly had a much lighter campaign leading into this race than most years.
Twilight Payment also looked in good form when winning the trial for this race and the eight-year-old is currently the market favourite. Although he should be there or thereabouts he has got a much wider draw to contend with.
But the one who has progressed most this season has got to be recent Ebor winner SONNYBOYLISTEN and he might be a top-class stayer in the making at the age of four. His third in the Group 3 Ormonde Stakes behind Japan earlier in the season was a strong improvement in his form and he looked impressive when winning at Limerick over 1m 4f.
Soonyboyliston was then slightly disappointing in the St. John Smiths Cup, but bounced back to form in style with his win in the Ebor and he comes into this with plenty of chance of continuing his improvement and he is worth a stab against the usual suspects.
1pt win Sonnyboyliston @5/1, 16:40 Curragh, SundayLeave a comment
