Camelot Looking to Make History

Eight rivals stand between Camelot and a famous victory in the Ladbrokes St Ledger at Doncaster on Saturday as a win would of course seal the Triple Crown.

Aiden O’Brien trained Camelot is looking to add to the triumphs in the 2000 Guineas and the Epsom Derby and become the first horse to secure the Triple Crowd for 42-years.

Nijinsky was the last horse to complete the British hat-trick and Camelot will be the favourite with betting sites to write his name into the history books this weekend.

O’Brien’s son Joseph will be the man riding the horse on Saturday at Town Moor, which could make the achievement all the more special.

The Irish trainer believes that the conditions will play a big part on Saturday, he said: “The ground will hopefully stay good – that’s what went wrong at the Curragh.

“He hasn’t got a soft ground action. He’s very low, he doesn’t move off the ground. When they go beyond that mile and a half, that’s when the real stamina must kick in.”

Camelot will be the sole representative from Ballydoyle as O’Brien has opted not to run Imperial Monarch or Chamonix, despite the latter winning on Monday’s Galloway.

There is another challenger from Ireland in St Ledger though as Ursa Major, who is trained by Tommy Carmody has been tipped by a few for success on Saturday.

Derby runner-up Main Sequence is running for David Lanigan, Encke goes for the Godolphin team under Mickael Barzalona and the highly-rated Melrose Stakes winner Guarantee has to really step up to the plate with William Haggis.

Then you have Thoughtworthy and Michelangelo will also enter the race, with popular jockey Frankie Dettori set to ride the latter and will be looking for success in the St Ledger after winning it on Sahntau back in 1996.

Making up the rest of the field are big outsider Dartford and Sir Henry Cecil trained Thomas Chippendale.

It is all set for a thrilling race at York on Saturday and we could see history made. Bring on the action!
