Camelot entered for St Leger as he aims for Triple Crown

Social Sharing: 

CamelotCamelot is one of 36 entries for the St Leger as he continues his quest to win the Triple Crown. Having already won the first two legs, the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Derby at Epsom, if Camelot (2/5 to win the St Leger) is successful at Doncaster on September 15 he will become the first winner of the three races since Nijinsky in 1970.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, Camelot has also won the Irish Derby at the Curragh, and he could be joined by up to 10 stable companions, with the likes of Imperial Monarch, Astrology and Athens. Four time winner John Gosden appears to be the main threat, as the Clarehaven handler has Irish Oaks winner Great Heavens (6/1 to win the St Leger), Shantaram, Michelangelo, Dartford and Thought Worthy to choose from.

Mahmood Al Zarooni is another well-represented trainer, with his list of possibles headed by his new recruit, Royal Ascot winner Energizer (20/1 to win St Leger). Sir Henry Cecil has two possible runners in Thomas Chippendale and Noble Mission, with the Queen's Estimate given an entry by Sir Michael Stoute. Main Sequence, Light Heavy and Hartani are other notable entries at this early stage. Cecil's two entries were first and second in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, with Thomas Chippendale (14/1 to win St Leger) coming out on top for Sir Robert Ogden.
