Logician has quickly developed into one of the most exciting colts in training.

A striking grey son of the mighty Frankel, he is a difficult horse to miss and his first five races have yielded as many wins. Each time he has started favourite, making him a punters’ pal into the bargain.

He went off 10/11 for his latest assignment, the William Hill St Leger at Doncaster, and his backers rarely had a moment’s worry.

Frankie Dettori said afterwards he knew victory was assured two furlongs out and Logician was not extended to win by two and a quarter lengths in a record time.

It perhaps was not the strongest of renewals but Logician created a deep impression, just as he had when landing the Great Voltigeur Stakes on his previous start and in his other three races.

Recording his fifth Leger victory, Gosden said: “He took Frankie on early, you could see Frankie’s hands were higher than usual, but he eventually relaxed well.

“He stayed the trip well, which is always a worry, and the fast ground rather than it being testing probably helped him stay the trip and he’s won in a record time with one flick of the stick.

“He’s a mile-and-a-half horse really, but this is a Classic and Prince Khalid was keen because he breeds these lovely horses and wanted to win a Classic for Frankel – we’ve won him two now as we also won the Oaks for him (with Anapurna).

“The way he quickened with just one flick – he’s a gorgeous horse. I think he’d be better on good ground, rather than good to firm.

“He’ll probably revert to a mile and a half next year. He’s done so much so quickly this year that we’ll put him away now, he won’t run again this season.

“He was held back for some time and I was diligent with him, having not done a lot at two. He’s come a long way in a short period of time.”

Dettori was recording his 15th Group One victory of the year and said: “The St Leger has been very lucky for me. That’s probably my easiest one (Leger success) – he’s a serious horse.

“John has always been keen on him and I should have known when he made me go to Newbury one evening to ride him in a handicap – I thought it was strange.

“He showed in the Voltigeur he was a good horse and there’s plenty more to come next year.

“There were no problems today, maybe at the start when he jumped so good and took me on a little bit, but from over two out I knew I’d won.”
