Golden Horn half-brother to 1m3f Listed winner Lionel; dam 1m4f-14.5f winner (including Group 2), half-sister to 1m6f Group 1 winner Duncan and 2m2f Group 2 winner Samuel; that's a very classy pedigree and he's much respected on debut.

Dam won the Group 2 Park Hill over C&D on her fifth start; her son bids to do likewise in the St Leger following wins on his first three starts, most notably from the front when evens in the 1m6f Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, and a commendable third to Continuous in the Great Voltigeur at York where setting a strong pace in a bid to compensate for dropping back to 1m4f (on good to firm) and he gave the winner 3lb; unraced on softer than good; Frankie Dettori jumps ship to ride Arrest but this one will be very well suited by reverting to today's greater stamina test.

Took a major step forward from his debut when winning seven-runner maiden at Pontefract (1m2f, soft; 8-1) 18 days ago in clearcut style, readily making all; type to keep progressing and unlikely to have any problem with today's longer distance; leading contender.

Acts on soft; the promise shown this spring, including at this track, has not been fulfilled but he did shape as if staying 1m4f at Thirsk on latest outing; that performance was the first suggestion that he might get 1m6f.

Beat a better-fancied stablemate in Salisbury novice (1m, good to soft; 13-2) on his only outing last season, coming from the rear to win going away; open to plenty of improvement and will probably stay this longer trip (has an entry in the Irish Derby); considered.

Won two of first three starts, before fading into a respectable fifth in the 1m4f German Derby; tailed off in handicap in September (1m2f, soft) on sole start since and needs overall improvement, but he is lightly raced.

Promising record of 2-3 on home soil, including a ready success on handicap debut; respectable fifth in German Derby when last seen, shaping as if this drop back to 1m2f will be ideal; likely has more to offer and looks one for the shortlist.

Outsider of three (12-1) when making winning debut in Leicester novice (1m4f, heavy) by 50l and 40l; very hard to evaluate on that one run in testing conditions but could be anything and needs taking seriously.

0-5 since making a winning debut in a three-runner Leicester novice (1m4f, heavy) last spring, but he ran well when a close second of five on last month's Pontefract return (2m2f, heavy); that form has since been boosted and this unexposed stayer has to be considered.

Soundly beaten this spring on his first three starts (1m3f-1m4f, AW/good) but he showed ability and there's potential in his pedigree; wears first-time cheekpieces for this handicap debut and he's an interesting contender, especially if attracting market support.

Left 7f Redcar debut well behind when second of six at Pontefract (1m2f, soft; gelded since) last autumn; that form isn't anything special but he was doing his best work in the closing stages so this 2f longer trip should suit; not fully exposed but may be of more interest when handicapping.
