Order of St George Pursues Back-to-Back Irish St Leger WinsPosted on Tuesday 11th September 2018 @ 13.45

Order of St George will be out to claim his second crown on the bounce when he competes in the Irish St Leger at Curragh.

The six-year-old won the event in 2015, but suffered a defeat in his previous bid to notch the crown, losing out to Wicklow Brave. However, he was able to respond in 2017 with a dominant performance to reclaim his title. Aidan O’Brien’s charge will now aim to become the first horse since Vinnie Roe to win back-to-back wins at the event.

The six-year-old is the leading contender for the crown in the horse racing betting odds, although he will face competition from Flag of Honour and Capri. O’Brien’s charge had enjoyed a strong 2018 campaign until his performance at Royal Ascot. Ryan Moore will be out to prove a point on the Irish horse when he returns to action for the meet.

Order of St George was one of the horses beaten by the brilliant Enable in the Prix De L'arc De Triomphe, finishing in fourth place in the event. However. O’Brien’s charge was able to recover from his display at the British Long Distance Cup, ending his season on a high note. He faced off against a familiar field, including Torcedor, who he had beaten in the Irish St Leger six weeks previously. He needed to be at his best down the straight to claim the victory, defeating his rival by half-a-length at Ascot.

He returned for the 2018 season at the Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan. Order of St George was considered the favourite for the event and was able to claim the win with relative ease on his return to the track. Moore made the surge towards the end of the meet, cantering down the stretch to finish five-and-a-half lengths ahead of Lord Yeats in second place.

The Irish horse was forced to work harder in his second race of the campaign at the Saval Beg Levmoss Stakes. He tracked the pace of the early leaders before shifting in contention for the lead four furlongs from the end of the race. O’Brien’s charge kicked into the lead before the straight, although on this occasion Twilight Payment put him under pressure. He just had the pace to see off the threat to secure the win by three-quarters of a length.

Order of St George was considered the favourite for the Ascot Gold Cup to repeat his triumph from 2016. However, he struggled for rhythm from the off and was unable to make a charge as Stradivarius produced the performance to secure the win, finishing narrowly ahead of Vazirabad and Torcedor, while Order Of St George had to settle for fourth place. The underwhelming outing was the six-year-old’s last time on the track this term, therefore O’Brien has work ahead of him to get the star stayer back to his best for the race at Curragh. There will be a talented field and the six-year-old cannot afford another stuttering performance in pursuit of back-to-back titles.
