Hurricane Lane | PA Media

Classic winner Hurricane Lane (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) is one of 13 confirmed for the G1 Cazoo St Leger at Doncaster on Saturday. The Godolphin colt, who won the G1 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby and the G1 Grand Prix de Paris in June and July respectively, also ran third in the G1 Cazoo Derby for trainer Charlie Appleby.

'TDN Rising Star' High Definition (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is one of six for the Coolmore partners and Aidan O'Brien. The 2020 G2 Beresford S. victor was the winter book favourite for the Derby, but has yet to fully live up to that potential this season and exits the G2 Great Voltigeur S. with a sixth on Aug. 18. Second in that York Classic pointer was The Mediterranea (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), two better than stablemate Sir Lucan (Ire) (Camelot {GB}). The three-for-four Leopardstown listed winner Interpretation (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), and winners Carlisle Bay (Ire) (Gaileo {Ire}), third in a Group 3 at two, and King Of The Castle (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) make up the sextet.

Runner-up at Epsom, Mojo Star (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) takes part for Richard Hannon, while Johnny Murtagh sends out G3 Gordon S. hero Ottoman Emperor (Ire) (Excelebration {Ire}) and Andrew Balding saddles Youth Spirit (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), third in the Great Voltigeur. Listed winner and Group 3-placed Fernando Vichi (Ire) (Australia {GB}) represents Donnacha O'Brien. The field is rounded out by Ralph Beckett trainee and listed-placed Scope (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) and Roger Varian's listed heroine Save A Forest (Ire) (Kingman {GB}), who ran fourth in the G1 Cazoo Oaks.
