Connections have confirmed unbeaten colt Logician will run in the William Hill St Leger at Doncaster on September 14.
The son of Frankel only made his racecourse bow earlier this season but he quickly wracked up two wins at Newbury and a success at Newmarket before making the step up to Group Two company at last month's Great Voltigeur at York - a race he also won in emphatic fashion.
Trainer John Gosden stopped short of confirming Logician for the St Leger in the aftermath of his victory at York but Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah, has now given the green light for the three-year-old to run in the oldest of Britain's five Classics.
He told PA: "Logician is an intended runner in the St Leger. We're always nervous of confirming these things straight after a race in case we didn't get the right answer.
"We wanted to make sure Prince Khalid is happy and the horse is happy and that is the case. The horse is in good form."
