had stamina to prove over almost 3f further than he'd tried before, hardly bred for this far, but he was a cut above the field based on his excellent second in the Derby and a promising run in the Eclipse, both of which showed that he can mix it with some of the very best around, the standard he set good enough to win most St Legers, and it didn't require any improvement to land the second Group 1 of his career, seeing out the extra distance thoroughly; patiently ridden, travelled better than most, still quite a way back when Atzeni shook him up over 3f out, good headway out wide soon after and stayed on to lead just inside the final 1f, hung left from the outer once in front, as many do at this track, but kept going well nonetheless; although he hasn't enhanced his rating this does cement what a talent Kingston Hill is, evidently a strong stayer too, so with only 3 runs under his belt at further than 1m there could yet be better performances to come, also worth remembering that he hasn't run on ground softer than good since romping home in the mud in last year's Racing Post Trophy, and connections have always felt that returning to such conditions would be in his favour.

bounced straight back from a disappointing run in the King George, something just not right that day, suited by stepping up almost 3f in trip and running his best race to date, unable to turn the tables with Kingston Hill from the Derby but getting 2 lengths closer to that rival, and it's no mean feat to have been placed in 2 classics; Buick always had him in a prominent position and he led under pressure over 1f out, edging left as the winner also came across before headed just inside the final 1f, keeping on well for second; unraced as a 2-y-o, Romsdal is quite possibly the sort that will improve a bit more with age, and there's little doubt that he'll be winning pattern races in his 4-y-o campaign.

has made steady progress throughout the year and, although he's probably now reached a limit, this was another very good run trying this trip for the first time and he deserves credit for the consistency he's showing, plus he seems to be maturing all the time, a little on his toes in the preliminaries but not playing up to the extent that he had before the Gordon Stakes, for instance; mid-division, travelled well, headway out wide 3f out, chased leaders after 2f out, keeping on but looked held when short of room entering final 1f, one paced after, making no further impression on the front pair; he's unlikely to be competing in the top Group 1 races next season but ought to hold his own in the second-tier pattern races at 1½m/1¾m.

looked unlucky not to beat Snow Sky in the Gordon but that rival had improved again since and he couldn't quite turn the form around with him, running his best race yet to hit the frame in a Group 1 though, and as expected he stayed the longer trip; tracked pace, travelled well, driven over 1f out, one paced; he's proved himself to be tough, versatile and reliable throughout this year and should be placed to advantage in a Group race before too much longer.

produced his best effort to date going beyond 1½m for only the second time and, probably more than any other in this field, he's a real stayer in the making, already proven at 2m (third in Queen's Vase) and still unexposed for a proper test of stamina; mid-division, effort over 2f out, kept on; returning to 2m+ is bound to suit and he's one to keep in mind for the Cup races next season.

beat a couple of these rivals in a listed event at Goodwood 3 weeks ago but this was a big step up in grade and he ran about as well as could have been expected, showing a little further improvement in form terms without being good enough to stay in contention; chased leaders, pushed along 3f out, edged ahead over 2f out, headed over 1f out and couldn't quicken as the principals asserted.

Non Runners: MIN ALEMARAT (IRE).

Winning Owner: Mr Paul Smith

Time: 3m 5.42s

A strong St Leger field, Derby runner-up Kingston Hill setting a high standard, whilst there was plenty of other smart, progressive sorts in opposition, and the result genuinely couldn't look any more solid, Kingston Hill seeing out the longer trip to uphold form with Romsdal, who'd finished third at Epsom in June, with a couple of lengths further back to the one-two from the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood - Snow Sky and Windshear - which is often a key trial for this final classic of the season; Granddukeoftuscany made most of the running at a respectable pace and it proved a fair contest tactically, no real advantage/disadvantage in where they raced; the only sour note came with the withdrawal of Odeon at the start after the hood, which he'd worn in an attempt to calm him down in the preliminaries, hadn't been taken off by the time he got to post, and more common-sense stewarding was surely required over such an inconsequential matter.

KINGSTON HILL had stamina to prove over almost 3f further than he'd tried before, hardly bred for this far, but he was a cut above the field based on his excellent second in the Derby and a promising run in the Eclipse, both of which showed that he can mix it with some of the very best around, the standard he set good enough to win most St Legers, and it didn't require any improvement to land the second Group 1 of his career, seeing out the extra distance thoroughly; patiently ridden, travelled better than most, still quite a way back when Atzeni shook him up over 3f out, good headway out wide soon after and stayed on to lead just inside the final 1f, hung left from the outer once in front, as many do at this track, but kept going well nonetheless; although he hasn't enhanced his rating this does cement what a talent Kingston Hill is, evidently a strong stayer too, so with only 3 runs under his belt at further than 1m there could yet be better performances to come, also worth remembering that he hasn't run on ground softer than good since romping home in the mud in last year's Racing Post Trophy, and connections have always felt that returning to such conditions would be in his favour.
