The Parimatch Indian St Leger (Gr 1) is the feature event of Sunday's seven-race card, with only five runners in the fray. And since four of the five had run together in the Idar Gold Trophy three weeks ago, the only question that needs to be answered is: can King's Ransom, who underperformed on that occasion because of getting badly blocked at a crucial stage, now turn the tables on Dyf?
Looking at the extended trip (2,800m today vs 2,400m last time), and hoping jockey PS Chouhan will be more cautious this time, I answer that question in the affirmative.
First race at 2 pm.
