Idaho tops St Leger entries


Ante-post favourite Idaho heads the 15 horses entered for the Ladbrokes St Leger at the six-day stage.

Third to Harzand in the Investec Derby, Idaho took second in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open before going on to land the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York last time and the son of Galileo is the warm favourite to win the final Classic of the season.

He is one of seven entries from Aidan O'Brien with Housesofparliament, Sword Fighter, The Major General, Unicorn, Kellstorm and Triplicate all possibles for Ballydoyle.

Jim Bolger, meanwhile, could saddle Twilight Payment.

John Gosden withdrew Wings Of Desire from the field at the six-day stage but he still has the option of running Muntahaa, while Ed Dunlop could be represented by Red Verdon.

Ventura Storm and Ormito have stood their ground for Richard Hannon and Andrew Balding alongside The Tartan Spartan, Harrison and Harbour Law.
