Will Kew Gardens Continue Winning Run?Posted on Tuesday 28th August 2018 @ 15.08

Kew Gardens has established himself as the leading contender to take the final race of the Triple Crown in the flat season at the St Leger Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien’s charge has found his form in the 2018 season after an underwhelming start to the campaign.

Despite his form, there will be a number of competitors that will be vying for the win. His stable-mates Forever Together and Rostropovich are two of the leading contenders from O’Brien’s yard that will be battling for the crown along with Wells Farhh Go, Latrobe and Dee Ex Bee.

Kew Gardens has displayed a strong recent surge, which will stand him in good stead at Doncaster. It has seen his odds fall to 3/1 to win the St Leger Stakes with William Hill. His last two performances have been impressive, but he will have to raise the bar even further to claim the title.

O’Brien’s charge made a poor start to the 2018 campaign in the Feilden Stakes at Newmarket. He was considered the favourite for the event with Ryan Moore in the saddle. However, the bay colt failed to find his rhythm on the track, finishing off the pace of Mildenberger and Fortune's Pearl.

The bay colt had the opportunity to bounce back from his underwhelming outing in his next appearance in the Derby Trial Stakes at Lingfield Park. The Irish horse tracked the progress of the leading group, but Moore could not manoeuvre his charge in position to strike down the final furlong, finishing second behind Knight To Behold by three-and-a-quarter lengths.

Kew Gardens was completely off the pace at The Derby. He was an outside candidate for the event, but he failed to make an impression at the Epsom Downs, placing down in ninth. The three-year-old needed a response to prevent his season from heading in a disappointing direction.

He produced a brilliant performance at Royal Ascot to change his fortunes on the term. The Irish horse was considered one of the top contenders for the Queen’s Vase, with Moore in the saddle. He got off to a slow start in the contest, although he made progress down the outside to move into position for a charge in the closing stages. Kew Gardens moved into second place one furlong out and was able to find an extra boost of speed to kick away from Southern France, powering over the line to win by four-and-a-half lengths.

The three-year-old was able to build on his fine display with his second victory on the bounce. Kew Gardens managed the expectations at Longchamp to secure the win by one-and-a-quarter lengths. After another fine effort in the Great Voltigeur Stakes, making eye-catching headway in the home straight, eventually finishing a staying on third over a trip short of his best, he’s expected to improve for the step up to one mile six furlongs in the final Classic of the season.
