Past Winners » Sonnyboyliston


I am backing Sonnyboyliston in the Irish St Leger.

Johnny Murtagh’s horse was progressive last season, and he has continued that progression this term.  He won the Northfields Handicap on this card last season over 10 furlongs, but he proved last time in the Ebor that he could stay today’s trip.

He won the Ebor off a mark of 108, and a 5lb hike takes him up to a mark of 113, right on the coattails of the top-rated stayers.  And it is probable that he isn’t finished progressing yet.

He goes really well at The Curragh, he has won there twice and his only defeats there were on soft ground, and there is every chance that he can put up a career-best performance today.
