Giuseppe Garibaldi aiming to boost Leger claims at Newmarket

Tuesday, Jul 10 2018

Giuseppe Garibaldi and Victory Salute will locks horns once again in Thursday’s Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained duo finished second and fourth respectively in the Curragh Cup last time out and they both try their luck again in the Group Three heat over a mile and five furlongs on the July Course.

Giuseppe Garibaldi also finished third in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot last month and is a general 16-1 chance for the St Leger at Doncaster in September.

John Gosden’s First Eleven, the Charlie Appleby-trained Loxley and Wells Farhh Go from Tim Easterby’s yard are others that feature in the Leger betting and take their chances here.

Berkshire Blue, an 11-length winner at Wolverhampton last time, is stepped up in class by Andrew Balding with Caliburn and Global Giant completing the eight-strong field.
