Following Group 1 victories in both the Irish Derby and Grand Prix de Paris, Hurricane Lane was sent off for the cazoo St Leger at paltry odds of 8/11.
The hype however was not misplaced as the son of Frankel surged clear of his rivals to comfortably win the world’s oldest Classic.
The hot favourite travelled kindly under William Buick before being asked to improve with three furlongs to go. The result was instantaneous as the Irish Derby winner burst clear in great style in front of a huge crowd.
Mojo Star who had previously finished ahead of the winner at Epsom stuck on well to claim his second Classic silver medal.
