Horse rac­ing

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Boxing -

The fi­nal Clas­sic of the sea­son takes place at Don­caster to­day and trainer Ai­dan O’brien can record a hat-trick in the race cour­tesy of Il Par­adiso.

The three-year-old ran a stormer to fin­ish third be­hind Stradi­var­ius and Dee Ex Bee in the Lons­dale Cup at York last month, which marked him out as one to watch in these type of races.

Il Par­adiso may look O’brien’s sec­ond string on jockey book­ings, but there are no doubts about his stamina and he could take ad­van­tage of the in­ex­pe­ri­ence of favourite Logician. The classi­est horse in the race, he is un­beaten in four starts but only one Leger win­ner in the past 30 years has en­tered the race with fewer than five pre­vi­ous ca­reer runs and he may just lack the guts for a bat­tle.
