Verdict

A fiercely competitive St Leger in which the narrow vote goes to SONNYBOYLISTON, who is less exposed than most and arrives on the back of an improved showing when winning the Ebor. Twilight Payment is expected to go well having landed the trial, while Search For A Song, successful in this the last 2 years, is unlikely to be far away in her hat-trick bid.

  1. SONNYBOYLISTON (IRE)
  2. TWILIGHT PAYMENT (IRE)
  3. SEARCH FOR A SONG (IRE)
