Fame And Glory has been installed the 5-4 favourite for Saturday’s Irish St Leger after featuring among 13 confirmations for the race.
The five-year-old suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Fictional Account in the trial race at the Curragh last month, but is widely expected to right the record for Aidan O’Brien.
Paddy Power make him their clear market leader and offer 12-1 about Fictional Account, who reopposes for Vincent Ward after being supplemented for the race.
O’Brien also has Apache in the field while Dermot Weld’s Sense Of Purpose is the other leading home-trained challenger.
Curragh sixth Waydownsouth is a rank outsider for Patrick Flynn.
The British challenge appears strong with Mark Johnston’s Jukebox Jury the 9-2 second favourite after his recent Group Two victory in France.
Godolphin’s Opinion Poll and John Gosden’s Duncan could clash again after fighting out the finish to the Lonsdale Cup, a race in which David O’Meara’s Blue Bajan finished seventh.
The Ed Dunlop-trained Red Cadeaux, David Lanigan’s Meeznah, Times Up from John Dunlop’s yard and Mark Tompkins’ Ted Spread complete the line-up.
