St Leger the 'logical step' for Technician - MeadePosted on Sunday 18th August 2019 @ 11.58

Technician's win in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury on Saturday looks to have set him up for next month's St Leger at Doncaster.

The Martyn Meade-trained three-year-old finished sixth behind the victorious Nayef Road in his previous outing in Goodwood's Gordon Stakes on August 1.

However, Technician responded well in the extended one-mile-five-furlong Group Three trip as the son of Mastercraftsman edged out favourite Morando by three-quarters of a length.

Meade's son and assistant, Freddie, suggested the St Leger in mid-September is the next "logical step" for Technician.

He said: "He has been a funny horse. It's very difficult, as you only have a short amount of time to work these horses out. He has only had six runs.

"A galloping track and a bit of juice in the ground has helped, and he just keeps on giving. Rob (Hornby) said he felt all the way up the straight he would get there.

"With all credit to him he has managed to win over a mile and a quarter and has run over a mile and a half and stepping up now I think these sort of trips will be his distance.

"We will have to talk to everybody, but that (Leger) has been on our radar for a while and I think the extra trip and the ground the way it could be at Doncaster might make it a logical step.

"He was never able to get into a real good rhythm (at Goodwood) where he could get into a good fight.

"Like he showed at Longchamp, he likes to get his head down and get stuck in and he never had that chance at Goodwood."
