Tonight’s St Leger Preview

Tonight The Gardens will host the Group 3 Woy Woy Poultry St Leger Final (515m).

Reg Kay’s Elite Blue Size (box 3) has shown sensational form recently, winning their past four from four as has the unbeaten young son of Bombastic Shiraz, the Robert Smith-trained Lochinvar Marlow. Lochinvar Marlow also boasts the fastest personal best time at the track, a sizzling 29.43 and will jump from box 5 tonight. The Laurie Healion Memorial Maiden winner also ran the fastest of the four final qualifiers last week with 29.76.

Other fancied runners include Vic Peters Classic Finalist Boston Blackie, drawn wide with box seven and from the in-form Victorian trainer Jamie Ennis, Where Am I (box two).

The $15 000 to-the-winner Woy Woy Poultry St Leger will run as race six on The Garden’s cracker 10-race programme and is due to jump at 8:46pm.
