Masked Marvel Wins St Leger for Gosden

MASKED MARVEL showed he possesses stamina in abundance, while not lacking a turn of foot, as he gave trainer John Gosden and jockey William Buick back-to-back St Leger victories.

It was a fourth win in the race for Gosden after Shantou (1996), Lucarno (2007) and Arctic Cosmos last year.

Gosden said: "From the day I saw him at the Deauville sales I thought he could be a Leger horse. He's done nothing wrong all his life, he ran very well at Goodwood, and then Epsom [in the Derby] confused him. Mr [Bjorn] Nielsen allowed me to back off him and bring him back fresh and this has been the plan for about two years."

Great race, and another very well ridden St. Leger by young William Buick!! When you see the replay of the race, you'll see that Masked Marvel was clearly much the best horse in the race today!! Even at the end of 1-3/4, it took Buick forever to pull Masked Marvel up!!
