Logician quickly developed into one of the most exciting colts in training in 2019.

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

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

Frankie Dettori said afterwards that 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.”

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.”

Unfortunately, Logician was a sick horse over the winter and as a consequence, he did not run for a year until reappearing in a match back at the St Leger meeting.

He had little problem preserving his unbeaten record but he trailed home last in a four-runner race at York the following month when a 1/3 favourite. He was clearly not himself and remains one to be enthusiastic about in 2021.
